About the work:

"DESCONTORÇÕES" is a word that, if existed, it would mean the opposite of contortions. This work was written during a less nice phase of my life, and it describes a wandering through moments of tension and relief. *This is only 1/3 of the whole piece. Very soon I'll publish a complete version on this channel (15'+ total).
