A friend of mine asked me to participate in his personal exhibition about a shoes brand, supporting him with a sound especially designed for that occasion. Enthusiastically I accepted and began immediately an intensive brainstorming period to compose several sounds, trying to create an original acoustic surrounding. He called this unusual sound proposal "music for shoes"... Anyway, if nobody shows up, at least the shoes will have a good time listening to that ..., he told me with a smile. Finally, I designed seven quite short audio modules, which I mixed a lot of times in different ways by a creative technique to get several kinds of loops. The characteristics of this composition are that I used this original mixing approach between the micro-modules and the loops as well. Eventually, the result was to obtain a macro-loop of 80 minutes, which principal color is the "organic" artistic design. This feeling, that you can experience better and better in later compositions, is definitively the most important attribute of my work, as well as the "ergonomic" stimulations of my sounds which form a symbiotic relationship with the architecture.
