“It began with a lone voice. Aimée Falzon, seated at her keyboard, gradually looped her voice into an impressive one-woman symphony…. The musicians did not just play the score, but performed it. Aimée Falzon in particular, though small and demure, showed great power with her vocals, and sang with fervour.. this turned what could have been just a film-screening into something more intimate and special.”
