Quotes from the Podcast
«In the last few years I’ve been working mainly on one subject: militarization and trying to reduce it.»
«I do not very much believe that music by itself can do the job. I think you also need to start acting and to be an activist while doing art.»
«This is about channeling the experience of people through a non compromisive sound work. So it is much beyond music.»
«It is a mean way to reach a form of a deeper understanding, some form of catharsis.»
«With these radio pieces I can offer young people a good alternative information as opposed to what they are being almost forced to listen to in school.»
