Giovanni e gli Alfabeti (1994/95)


orecchio (Fragment – mp3 – 1MB)

A piece on the theme of language sound richness. Recorded on the CD Nuove musiche dal Teatro del Faro Giovanni, an old man from Benevento, sings a song in his dialect and tells stories about his youth. Several alphabets from different languages create the acoustic environment all around, reminding us about the common origin of words. A typewriter draws up a report of everything, typing words upon words endlessly. The piece is available in the version of Hörspiel (it is recorded on the CD NUOVE MUSICHE DAL TEATRO DEL FARO) and as a live performance.
