Erich Lehna and Davide Swarup present their new live recorded album "CONTACT".

Music for Contact Improvisation, relaxation or meditation.

Building a bridge between the two world of acoustic and electronic music, using only acoustic instruments and effects with the new invented instrument RAV DRUM and GUITAR.

Transforming and looping the acoustic sounds in realtime. The result is an unique moving sound cloud.

Recorded live at the Source, Arambol, Goa for a Contact Improvisation Jam.
There are no overdubs cuts or add ons to keep the magic of this moment.

The musicians, as with the dancers, have created the music in the moment. The magic and the beauty of creation.

Not jamming, not improvising but creating HERE and NOW.
Like in a contact dance, no one is leading, just listening to each other creating the "dance" together.


Erich Lehna - Guitar FX
Davide Swarup - RAV Drum FX

Thank you to Vega Luukkonen to invite us to play for this contact improvisation and her passion and love for the musicians and for the contact dance.




Davide Swarup Arambol, India

Davide Swarup is often said to be a « soul player ». As a hang musician, a very unique one, he inspires and blows the mind away from thoughts or mental mechanisms.
Listening to his melodies is a way of meditating. Davide himself plays in a meditative state, allowing the music to come to him, without the ego or any kind of control interfering.
