Alphabetical Digressions

I love to work with poetry and texts. I have been thinking and researching a musical shape for the opera “Alfabeto Apocalittico” by experimental poet Edoardo Sanguineti for a while. Here is what me and Uygur Vural on cello made on letter “I”. The project is still open and will meet other musicians/ vocal artists in the next year.

Alfabeto Apocalittico is a collection of poems, one poem for each letter of the (Italian) alphabet. In every poem all the worlds start with the same letter. For example in the poem for the letter A, each worlds start with A making a very crazy collection of particular worlds and juxtaposition, game of meanings and sounds.

I love this opera very much and I felt I could take it as an inspiration for some musical composition and improvisation. I played some times with my partner in life and music Uygur Vural on cello and I now feel to extend it to the collaboration with other musicians and artists. The work is totally in progress, if you are an artist and would be part of it, no matter which corner of the word you are, just drop me a line.
