“The show for IKLECTIK is a way of tracing the footsteps that lead to this latest jump into the river that is called JELLY. The surprising twists and turns of my journey are often remarked upon as seeming to appear from nowhere. But they keep me guessing as much as the listener. I’ve learnt to trust the flow. Almost.” AP
