Reverse Expectations is a project for one electric guitar player and a single listener: a one to one concert. The guitar player plays in front of just one person. The musician and the person sit in front of each other. The guitar player has his instrument and his pedals, the sounds are processed through them and both the person and the musician can listen to the result through headphones, in a low-fi, intimate way.
The performance is about 12 minutes long. The spectator can choose among three pieces, without knowing in advance how they sound. The choice is based only on the suggestion she/he/they can have from the title of the pieces.
The pieces are written by Ruben Mattia Santorsa for solo electric guitar.
Premiere: Helsinki, 5th and 6th of March 2023, Oksasenkatu 11 gallery, Töölö
