Do what you want to Do (with a little restrain)

This episode includes the participation of two very special guests:

Alberto Aguilar and Federico Cattaneo.

When I invited Alberto and Federico, I had in mind doing a show in where they could talk about their visual work in musical ways. One of the most important aspects of this encounter is the fact that these two artists met for the first time at the radio station. Alberto and I were also hanging out for the first time and got to know each other over the two hours that we spent in a small radio studio (provided by Freeradiosaic.) During our experiment, we exchanged mumblings, interjections, songs, sounds, memories, forgetfulness, artwork, chords, discords, accents, mispronunciations, objects, and subjects sprinkled with dragees of the fragile male psyche. For more information about these two artists, you can click on their names to go to their websites.
