NIDRA is a live performance for electric guitar and video exploring the concept of the sleep-like state experienced by yogis during extended meditations. The concert features guitarist Giacomo Baldelli together with original video productions by OOOPStudio. NIDRA is a meditation, a lucid sleeping where the human being gets step by step aware of himself as entity made of flesh and bone, a body, but also made of a consciousness, dreams, thoughts – even dark. The end of this sort of mental journey is the waking up of the human being, now ready to face the world.
