In 2020, after 3 years of a long artistic journey, Gross finally completed the Followspot project: an original musical work combining art collaborations of - dance, animation, performance and installation art. Together with his best friend, writer and director Aharon Levin, they created a multi-disciplinary performance which accompanies a solo piano album. The compositions recorded while performed on an upright piano in an unusual recording method, enabling the listener to feel like they are actually seated near the pianist on a cold wintery night, discovering the stories as the music unfolds.
The music invites you to dive into another dimension, drift away on an emotional journey hearing the music that the protagonist hears in his mind.
