Asynchronous dancers. Contemporary electronic music.
Improvisations on machine dreams. Contemporary electronic music written during the global pandemic.

This piece is part of a collection of pieces called The lost objects collection. The series deals with nostalgia, memory, and the strange relationship between man and machine. The project started in the strange isolation brought on by the pandemic, which may be audible in the pieces’ quietude, and their lonely landscapes. Also part of this collection are the pieces Memory heap dancer and Back to dust.
