Artist notes:

Different Rooms is a piece about searching for inner peace, walking along a corridor of sound and opening countless doors. Curiosity and humour prevail and take us to undiscovered dimensions. It was written and edited after a long recording session in Valentina’s home studio, trying to redefine her sonic approach to collage art, layering field recordings, cheap keyboards, beatboxing and processed distant free jazz drumming.

Will the ear ever settle for a specific landscape? 

Cheap thrills, irregular beat and seasonal drones generate tension and release. Behind every door lies a chance to find a new completion.
