SThis here is the fourth album in the history of this Fusion Jazz trio, and which sonically derives from the Hermeto Pascoal musical school of left field freak-out improvisation and craziness.

With a totally unpredictable and unstructured style, this guitar, violin and drums threesome recorded this, their second disc. They were accompanied in its making by Chamber instruments, which contribute to the general sense of organized harmonic chaos. They wander through 60's & 70's soundtracks mixed with Crimsonian noises, and the rawness of Eastern European Punk Rock. A very peculiar combo.

Between May and September of 2012 Rubens Vitale (Donvi) was interviewed by renowned Argentine Music Journalist Pablo Arias, with whom he shared the ideas which animated and impacted all of his existence as a political leader, trade unionist, point of reference in Argentina for the self-management of musical production, and professor. His project is to pour all of these experiences in a book aimed at the youth. Unfortunately he wasn't able to bring it to a conclusion, as he sadly passed away on October 27. Donvi was an excellent exhibitor, as well as a vast creator of ideas, and possessed a very particular method which combined timings, spaces, and collection of topics, that somehow all finally converged and combined together to flow into a central proposal.
