"Watching music. Music, which is physically un-representable, is seen in the things that surrounds and on which it is deposited. These photos play and speak, show that even in the silence of the image the sound can be perpetuated.
Traces, photographs: small (visual) footprints that live in their concentrated time, minimal, but sufficient to grasp other impressions (of music) that on the contrary live a more extensive, extended time".
Enrico Prada, from the exhibition catalogue
