Pianist and accordionist Joao Lucas' music for Andresa Soares' choreography "It was a very abstract thing", structured acoustic improvisation with a slight electronic edge.

"Music written for Andresa Soares' choreography "It was a very abstract thing." Music focused on improvisation, although there is a canvas, and even entirely scored bits it seems. João Lucas plays piano, accordion and (light and occasional) electronics; Miguel Mira on cello. The music focuses on the deep-running interplay between Lucas (mostly at the piano) and Mira. Non-idiomatic music charged with emotion and busy with motion, with a slight touch of tango surfacing here and there."-Francois Couture
