Notes

  • Program notes: 

    I wrote “Non sta si svolge e gira” for VocaalLab in 2012. I made a collage of texts from works that Giordano Bruno, Italian philosopher and poet, wrote in London in 1584-85: “De l’infinito, universo e mondi”; “De gli eroici furori”; “De la causa, principio et uno”. Here, the main themes are the infinity of the universe and the human condition in a space that has not a predetermined center.
    My work focuses on the opposition between the individuality of the voice and a space where voices merge and become nothing other than sound. In the beginning three singers are hidden, so that only their voices are present while the mezzosoprano walks alone on the stage towards the audience, a lonely silent woman surrounded by voices. Slowly the other singers reach her in the center of the stage, and only then she begins to sing with the others.
