Sopra di noi... (niente)

small orchestra


Echoes of distant events, possibly scarcely interpretable traces, determine the structure of Sopra di noi... (niente). The function of the echoes is less that of a precise determination of location and more that of a "description of existence", which in turn is an expression of different, mutually independent layers of time.
The various, constantly changing spaces correspond to the changing relationships of the time levels, i.e. the "spaces" are images of the encounter of different time layers, which receive their unique character at exactly those moments.
The incompatibility of proximity and distance remain ciphers in their own right; Proximity as an expression of the moment of being, the time levels in their differentiation as a - poetic - expression of distance.

Io venni in loco d' ogni luce muto,

I reached a place where every light is muted,

(Dante; "Divine Comedy", Inferno, Canto V)
