PercLero, as the very word might suggest, is a Percussion Bolero. I wrote this little piece of music in a similar way Conlon Nancarrow used to, drawing the notes on a piano roll. Here, PercuLero is played by a cheap automatic digital consort. For those of you who enjoy music theory stuff, I’ll say that PercuLero is based on a 9/4 ostinato with irregular rhythmic groupings (mostly 3, 5 e 7) over it.
In the video, I stuffed a bunch of Unleashed Sketches of mine, mixed media on several types of paper.
I have drawn, and posted on this very blog, 65 Sketches for Portraits so fat. As I have done with the 90 Brown paper Sketches, today I have stuffed this bunch of images into another video and then I have written a little piece of music to go along with. 65 Sketches for Portraits is the result, and you can watch it right here above.

Doodled in Paris, 1987. It’s actually part of a series of sketches about The Dispossessed Moon – a phrase that incongruously came across my mind one night when I was climbing the stairs of a Métro underground passage near République station, in Paris. It means nothing, and I liked it.
Scarabocchiato a Parigi, 1987. Fa parte di una serie di schizzi per La Luna Diseredata – una frase che mi venne incongruamente in mente una notte mentre stavo salendo i gradini in un sottopassaggio del Métro vicino alla stazione République, a Parigi. Non significa niente, e mi piacque.
