Sometimes I feel the need to play games . I begin to rummage in the wonderful world of musical sounds (often "unconventional") and extra-musical, with a childlike mind, curious and entertained. Ludica and Ludica II have in common the electronic band, tearing the linearity formally objected to attempts to polymorphism, the low-fidelity as a concept midway between the acoustic beautiful sound and electronic circular motion. Virtuosity to John Petrucci / Paul Gilbert and the puzzles become spirals infront of stairs, which eventually collapse ... and then you get tired of the game, you stop without finishing it, that's when you realize that often it is better to keep your hands sticky with jam.
