Senza is based on a collection of sounds recorded in various places and in different periods of time. It is a form of sound-documentation of events. The track is divided into five parts, a train journey, a game with sound-marbles in a place near the sea, a ride with a bicycle, a homemade drum kit made of casseroles, and moving furniture in various tones.

Born and raised in Thessaloniki, Metaxas is a self-taught musician who started playing the electric guitar in various groups before forming Good Luck Mr. Gorsky. Better acknowledged for his work as inverz, he gradually shifted to the use of modular synthesizers, tapes, and field-recordings as sound tools, rather than instruments. He is also active with the Granny Records label, publishing works of contemporary Greek musicians.
