- Common Ground -
The Portuguese drummer and composer Marco Santos usually prefers to play shows surrounded by as many fellow artists as possible, as well as in the many collaborations and projects he puts down. However in this solo he creates an intimate setting where he investigates the different forms in which he is proficient. Minimalist, improvisation, from body to instrument, from organic to electronic, from being to becoming. With video projection, poetry (voice over), story telling and a variety of influences, it becomes a path that leads through different destiny's but ultimately leads to known grounds. The awareness of the common ground."
