“Una situazione ricca di fremiti, tensioni, dolori e speranze, rispecchiata in una musica in cui la modernità é evidente, ma mai sterililmente preponderante, e con un linguaggio che avvince l’ascoltatore”

(A situation full of thrills, tensions, pains and hopes, reflected in a music in which modernity is obvious, but never infertilely predominant, and in a language that captivates the listener)

Nicola Sbisà, La Gazzetta del Mezzogiorno

Elementi di Metafisica Pianistica (for piano and live electronics)

Spazio e tempo di un pianoforte che risuona al di là di noi. Uno strumento che esprime la sua potenza senza essere al nostro servizio, senza accondiscendere a stli, estetiche, linguaggi che non siano propri della sua naturale essenza sonora.
Pianoforte, Cesare Valentini
Live electronics: harmonizer with a 7th up and a 7th down, two delays (4 and 8 seconds)

Blu Cobalto

This is the first of a project of solo instruments pieces called colors and inspired by the color of the sound of each instrument. Every piece is written in one position/chord/multiphonic and all that you can listen (chords, melodies, rythms) is created by partials of a multiphonic that have a F quarter tone as fundamental. Blu Cobalto is a commission of the flutist Roberto Fabbriciani that premiered the piece in 4th June 2011 giving to the work his magic coloristic and virtuose art of playng. During all the work he doesn’t move his hand by the position and in a live performance you can watch a performer with stop hands on the flute. Blu Cobalto requires an “active” role of the player that has all the sounds in the multiphonic but must “search” and listen every note or chord in which wants to put the focus on. All partials are not tempered and create a natural tuning sound. At the end of the video a blue image of the cat Swrap that loves the vibrations of this music.

Le accordature dell’arpa

skip_post_thumb Notoriamente si parla dell’arpa come di uno strumento diatonico per la sua natura costruttiva e per il fatto che nel periodo classico-romantico è stata usata accordando le corde per tonalità.
