    “Colophony is the “Greek pitch”, used to increase the friction of the bow on the strings of a violin. This piece is the narration of a genesis and a path, in which all the sounds are generated by the violin and electronically processed. Colophonia is a metaphorical representation of a dialectic between tone and noise, pitch and inharmonic material, friction and resonance. A path that alternates tension and release, in which the tension towards equilibrium is continually contradicted and crumbled, until a final denied catharsis.”
