As the name implies, the group explores the concept of mirror (by convention, object distances are always considered positive, image distances are considered positive for real images and negative for virtual images). The first track is played as an octet. The second track is played by listening, reacting and interacting with the recording of the first track, which sums up a total of 16 musicians. The process is repeated on the last and third track (reaction to the previous two tracks) resulting in a total layer of 24 musicians (for both musicians and listeners). Thus we try to refer to the concepts of reality / virtuality, so thoroughly confused nowadays, through the vertigo of technology. (and not only...) enjoy!
