"In January 2007, 7 year old Sienna Sol hosted a jam at her family's Three Kings Day party. Old Mr Grassi (an electronic instrument designed by Ciat-Lonbarde's Peter Blasser) was there. Sienna and her friends explored his tickly extra-terrestrial voices. Sound enthusiast Mitchell Brown recorded and encouraged. An active 6 months followed with Sienna and her 9-year-old friend Valentin partaking in free jams on analog electronics, rock instruments, amplified bicycle, microphones, etc. A slight guidance from Brown turned into the kids just doing whatever they felt like, using whatever they wished. Sienna is found dabbling in surreal stream-of-consciousness storytelling that can be image-inducing, playful, and at times, haunting. Experimenting with most of these instruments and organized-sound concepts for the first time, Valentin & Sienna display raw intuitive creativity that, within 'children's music', is seldom heard reaching such outer limits. Since these recordings took place the project has flowered to include other children and to be involved in public access television, radio, and various marching band configurations with adult sound explorers Jeff Boynton, Andy Ben, Arthur Arellanes and others."
