“Sonata Per Eterna” Composition for (radio waves, and electromagnetic radiations) 2017-2018.
“Sonata Per Eterna” it is deep sentimental work, in which the meaning of some combinations of words are connected to selected self-recorded electromagnetic radiation, signals from the outer space ( the sun, meteor), VLF (Natural Radio phenomena), morse code, air communication, naval communication, and VHF. This piece is inspired by my personal romantic idea feed it also by scientific notions about the journey of the soul after death to perpetual motion in the universe.
“The signal of the soul thought as a pure energy form leaves the body and reach the outer space passing across cosmic storms, planets, pulsar stars, black holes, intergalactic dust, stellar winds to enter in the Krasnikov tube: a distortion of space-time that can be intentionally created in the wake of travel close to the speed of light. Through it, the soul will be able to reach the final destination discovering “Eternal” in another universe. A piece of meteor comes back to earth as a symbol-messenger, bringing with it the secret of a new beginning of life. ”
During the performance, the composition is played in real-time with the use of tape recorders, reel to reel tape machine, and a meteorite.
