Paris – Ivan Ilić – October 2021

Overjoyed to share the magnificent video, filmed at the Panthéon, Paris! A privilege to be here and observe the work that went into its creation and thrilled to see my name listed on the credits! An artistic masterpiece of deep meaning, interconnection, an element of playfulness, as meditative notes from the Shigeru Kawai SK-EX and the Foucault Pendulum transcend measured time and explore a world beyond. Heartfelt thanks Ivan for the invitation!
