ABOUT:Kaolin is a white clay, rich of minerals that is mostly known as the key element of porcelain. The versatility of kaolin is fascinating – it is both used to strengthen brick and ceramic materials, and appreciated as a nourishing, mild and soft ingredient in skin creams. The resilient character of kaolin has inspired the structure of the music to explore the contrasts of a strong, harsh and rhythmical material that is both echoed and transformed into soft, fluctuating, timbral layers.
