I love performing cineconcerts : playing music in a movie theater while images are being screened is an extraordinary experience. With the friends at Altamira, we created and performed several such pieces. Here are two of them.

My heart is sinking into the deep night
Darkness is rushing over me
My heart is sinking into the deep night

We are the singing stars
We sing with our light
We are the firebirds
We fly all over the sky
And our light is a voice

How will I start my song
In the falling blue night 
I will sit down and start singing

My friend, it is an immense world
We are travelling through
On the rays of the moon
