it is not so easy to understand cyborg with ethnic add ons, but it
will be an object in the cyberspace concept and partly ethnic too...
now, in this direction i would like to mention a possible project of
mine. or rather that i will be involved at april 2010 and
it will be entitled -concertethno-. and it will be a multi media event
the electronic music composition will be based on ethnic sounds
a nd a percentage of the new visuals will represent ethnic glocalities
