This was an experiment that worked better live than recorded: but the music is [I think] still good. I took a group of musicians into the Museum of Skopje in Macedonia and conducted them about the space - with the obvious exceptions of the bass, drums and piano. It was a great mix of cultures, and the group got the communication together really quickly.

The museum is built on many levels and most of the audience were in the centre at the lowest level, so the sound cascaded around them. It marks a very good time for me, and I have hopes of going back to Skopje again.
