Cielo Vivo (living sky, or bright sky) was inspired by some verses by Frederico Garcia Lorca published in a volume entitled Poète à New York. Two verses in particular sum up my aims in this piece: “there every form remains interlaced/ with a unique frenetic expression of advance.” This work was created at GRAME’s studios in Lyon.
