This EP contains the results of my first ever residency I made in Turin (Italy) in May 2019. It is based on the idea of creating a sonic map of a place, the Royal Horse Stables in Turin, in the very heart of the city.
When I came back home I had this material with me and I was still reverberating with a weird disturbed energy. I was coming back to my home country after a long time, meeting new and old friends and sensing a general feeling of struggle at every level. A struggle for everyday life, for freedom of expression and artistic creation.
This struggling vibe came back with me to Berlin, and somehow I had to give it a shape and put it out.
This is how and why The green EP is born
