About this composition:

Technicki was my first attempt to compose cyberpunk music. The music was based on the cyberpunk anthology "Mirrorshades" published by Bruce Sterling and William Gibson. There was no special appeal about any story in itself, but an essential inspiration were the names I found in them, names that sometimes were nothing more than brief passages of no importance. I used this names to organize the feelings and the structure of the 16 tableaus that form the entire work.
This music must be played very loud and with good quality sound gear.

The complete show including live electronics, two saxophones (alto and tenor) and a very agressive male performer sustained 20 meters above the public by a wire, was premiered at the "Campos do Jordão" Winter Festival in July 1993.
