Contemporary experimental music
Gardika Gigih and Tomy Herseta present an acoustic-electronic collaboration – dynamic, occasionally calming, and always intense. The sounds are produced out of Gigih's piano and Tomy's noise-ambient set. They often improvise, letting all the different feels and energies of the moment infuse their music in real-time to create a distinct sound experience.
