This performance is inspired by the great Buddhist temple of Borobodur. The European jazz percussion master will also perform a new work based on the mandalas in the Rubin Museum of Art collection.

Regarded as “one of the most influential performers/percussionists of the last 30 years" (Modern Drummer - Michael Bettine), Andrea Centazzo combines percussion, digital percussion and computer sequencing with his award-winning videos to bring the emotion of a new sonic and visual adventure to the audience. Here he presents a journey in music and images around the world, starting from the amazing Borobodur temple in Java. From Japan to Bali from Africa to Madagascar, his images and compositions blend with original samples of traditional music, reveals the beauty of lost paradises.

His melodic compositions, mixed with minimalist patterns and combined with his mastery of improvisation, create a music beyond the pale of expectation. Breathtaking images of deserts, seas, forests and ancient cities and computer generated abstract videos are synced to the music in a flow of colours and textures. Using an array of 200 percussion instruments and the latest models of digital percussion linked to the computer, Centazzo creates a sonic landscape where the interaction of live and sampled sounds are endless in a blend of astonishing clarity.
