about

“Between Carthage and Rome” is a book of fugues, fantasies for piano and electronics, and synthesizer landscapes.

I wanted to dig much deeper (pardon the archaeological pun) and show the ties and intertwining developments of many civilizations on both sides of the Mediterranean, expressed through a maze of pianistic counterpoint, fugues, de-tuned synthesizers, percussion and electronic soundscapes.
