In 2020 Ricardo Climent (Keep•It•Human) offered a new collaboration to visual artists Manusamo&Bzika to build video-game Timbi World; expanding from "Xi" (2012), Climent's interactive media work composed for world-leading percussionist Miquel Bernat with 3D models by Manusamo&Bzika
Timbi.world is the result of 12 years of interactive media research by Ricardo Climent using game-engines, having artistic partners Manusamo&Bzika as key collaborators. The Timbila are a set of vibraphone-like musical instruments made of wood from Mozambique. This research started as a result of a commission that Climent received from Miquel Bernat to compose a piece for this instrument, to celebrate African culture.
