NFT series: Conjoined Tomatoes composed by Jacques Zafra

Watch my interview with a Mexican new music composer who lives in the US Jacques Zafra on his NFT piece Conjoined Tomatoes. The music is the rotten version of Erik Satie’s Gnossienne №1, beautifully executed by a computer but visual was created by beautiful conjoined tomato, which was bought by the composer in Leipzig (Germany) to see it rotting for several weeks.
