In another post, he explained that the music heard in the live stream “is loosely based on the XII century organa of the Notre-Dame school and earlier polyphony.”
He adds: “It's the foundation of my new album Organa I couldn't finish due to the war.”
The project has the aim to encourage the international audience's support of the Ukrainian army and humanitarian initiatives.
