Matsya

 

We will dedicate a couple jams to be carried by music.
Sometime purely ambient organic sounds to traditional instrumentations to cutting edge electronica to nature's call.

We create an emotive and technical sonic space
to enhance creative movements,
lock into rhythms or break free from them.
We allow silence to have a word,
chaos to be listened to with wonder.
