 Live band (Pictorial Candi with the Orange Peel): P.C. with Ola Rzepka, Marcin Masecki, Adam Byczkowski + guests.

For the live shows the band will use the EBERTONIUM CANDELARIA or EBERTONIUM CANDIDUS.

EBERTONIUM CANDIDUS is an analogue polyphonic instrument which emits sounds directly from light bulbs. It was conceived by Candelaria Saenz Valiente and fabricated by expert inventor Tomasz Ebert. Both Ebert and Candelaria designed the looks of the first model in early 2012.

E.C. is a low frequency sounding furniture with light bulbs that can be pitch bended by knobs that alter the intensity of the energy sent to each bulb. The attack is gentle as a Solina String Ensemble and it's potential power is health threatening as it includes four powerful subwoofers. If used delicately it has a crunchy, crepitant and soothing texture full of harmonics and delightful scratching noises (random frequency waves) which make this instrument a hypnotic pleasure to listen to
