Suite for vibraphone, glockenspiel, drum, woodblock, cowbell, objects
As in a cubist painting, Pasquale Mirra offers a suite with a two-dimensional form.
Unusual compositions alternate with structural and free improvisation, in a changing and and unpredictable way, as built by many fragments and “forms” disconnected from each other, but that show the different sides observed from several points of view.

He has collaborated and collaborates with great improvisers of the world stage, including: Michel Portal, Fred Frith, Nicole Mitchell, Tristan Honsinger, Ernst Rijseger, Rob Mazurek, Ballaké Sissoko, Buch Morris, Lansiné Kouyaté, Jeff Parker, Michael Blake and many others .
