Awake 3.0 is an interpretation of the limits between the conscious and unconscious, an exploration of the transitional moment were the state of alert is lost. I begaun to sketch this piece in Finland and I was inspired by the long winter nights I spent in Helsinki, composing and resisting the dozing temptation. After a breakbriefly distancing myself from the piece, I finalized it with the present format in New York. Its departureing point is the imagery of flickering of lights over reflecting frozen surfaces in the darkness and its hypnotic effects.
