Thank you for inviting me to your concert yesterday, and congratulations. To be honest, I’d felt slightly apprehensive beforehand – I let myself be talked into attending experimental-impro-jazz-fusion-noise-eclectic-you-name-it events too often, and, seeing as you were to play live, I thought I was in for something of the sort rather than the kind of music I know from your recordings. As it turned out, I was thrilled. Great music and you were great to watch, too. I loved the way you guided us up and down, throughout the concert, so that I’d suddenly find myself in a completely different part of the music, with no idea how I’d got there, not having noticed the transition, just aware of the sound being totally different. I was really impressed by this feeling of being gently taken through transitions.
How come you don’t perform more often? I’m joining the Saeta fan club and look forward to invitations to your future concerts..

I remember very clearly that I found myself feeling as though I was inhabiting different spaces. It was as if the sounds formed places and took us through them … large, vast open spaces or intricate, close, textured spaces … and I was very active in my journey and found myself actually moving around in my seat as though I was truly going on a voyage and moving through space with the sounds …
