I’ve been working on a project called 8knobs, it is a live act, using synthesizers, midi controllers and computer. I’ve done some showcases in Barcelona, and a gig will come very soon.

I hope in the future, gather all the equipment that will liberate myself from the computer, glitches and weird stuff that annoys me on this live setup.
