VIAGGIO INTERIORE [Awakening of Alice] / 2 0 0 9 / finalist of Toonzetters Price'10 nomination /
for soprano, acting percussionist, harp, 2 recorders and 8 channel electronics / 13:00 min /
"Viaggio Interiore" is a small chamber opera-like piece that represents the invisible theater of a daring and puzzling
journey into oneself. It is filled with the whimsical curiosity and abundant absurdity that one may go through in ones
head. Juxtaposing harmony and chaos, it deals with an old philosophical question of what is dream and what is reality?
In the end all this seems to be resolved, yet by a question mark, leaving the answer to eternity.
The sonic tapestry of its virtual musical space invites an audience “to experience” the struggle between
word and meaning, visible and invisible, seen and unseen.
