Accustomed to unusual proposals, the "musical invention cooperative" Sphota invents a city and invites the public to explore it through music. The "fluid mechanics" in question is therefore this multiple and moving space that is essentially urban. In this multidimensional space of possibilities, independent yet intertwined narratives coexist.

This excursion is driven by a collaborative composition by Benjamin de la Fuente and Samuel Sighicelli for a hybrid orchestra, which blends the aesthetics of Caravaggio (with an amplified instrumentarium and rock tropism) and the Ensemble Court-circuit (with its instrumental virtuosity and, again, its inclination for groove), merging in writing for electronics to create an immersive experience in the beating heart of the city.
