about

Scapes is a collection of electroacoustic compositions created between 2010 and 2012 in which the relationship between form and soundscape has thoroughly explored.

The musical form is narrative/temporal in nature. This means that a subject, a theme, a melody or a sound object become the characters of a story told through the aesthetic canons of a composer.
The map, on the other hand, is descriptive/spatial in nature. It describes a place where events occur. In everyday phenomenology it is a pictorial palette that the explorer uses to choose the colors of his journey; the soundscapist memorizes these colors in an audible path, in which events occur with day and night rhythm.

The idea of ​​composing soundscapes is a further step characterized by the fact that the map becomes the musical form - regardless of its real territory. So there is no story to tell, but a place to describe which, of course, can be more or less imaginary depending on the choices of the composer.

Between 2010 and 2012 my main need was to give life to this reflection which, little by little, was joined by that of composing not with events that the listener would find in the piece, but on those who were not present. Events that, going through silence, imposed a reflection on absence, on the possibility that silence offers to a sound map.

This collection is about this transition.
