"Once upon a point" is a generative video piece created by code programming in Processing. It shows both the evolution of a dot and the evolution of its community. It’s about how communication and understanding make way to the formation of higher, more complex structures.

Behind the Asferico project hides Barcelonan Alex Gámez, a Dj since he was 15 and a producer since he was 17. His aliases are many: Dj deck, under which he creates minimal sessions, tech and experimental house; clase muzique, his project as a producer with Fran Palomo (Barcelona), which ranges from the most rhythmic to the most “cerebral” minimal.

Alex Gámez is also the creator of the artists’ platform and electronic music festival Störung.
