Drip drop it starts. 

Drip drep it continues. 

Can you imagine rain without the rain, the sound made only with our voices? 

It began like this and went even further. Metamorphoses in a personal storm, with thunder like bells running in memories of old rains from other days: how did the rain and water feel then? 

The dynamic of water is felt in the flow and rapidity of chosen sounds to be composed. Engage a journey of personal waters that evolve in a feeling.
