Taka Kigawa performing live Marco Stroppa's "Traiettoria... deviata" on August 24th 2015 at (le) Poisson Rouge in New York City, USA. The live electronics was performed by Rafael Valle. The New York Times highly praised this performance as "'Traiettoria ... Deviata' (1982) sometimes adds to, and sometimes supplants, natural reverberations with echoing, otherworldly electronic sounds," and "Mr. Kigawa plays with a fundamental gentleness, even in intense passages, but he brings a precision to the relentless pricks and bristling repetitions in these pieces that’s especially effective when contrasted with the amorphous soundscape of 'Traiettoria ... Deviata.' That work’s concept — an interaction of acoustic and electronic — can seem pat in 2015, but the relationship between the two worlds is vivid enough to still persuade."
