BOOK OF EARTH AND CHARMS
CYCLE FOR VOICE AND ENSEMBLE BASED ON POEMS BY ANDREA BAJANI
from an idea by Simone Movio, Andrea Bajani and mdi ensemble

 

The fifty-eight poems were inspired by a list of daily tasks written out on a blackboard by the author's grandmother and are accompanied by a postlude that develops the questions in greater depth. Simple everyday and world issues are increasingly transcended until reaching a point at which words are stripped of their usual meaning, instead serving as vehicles for a pure inner voice: entities that bring inner resonance to the world, perhaps also accompanied by something shared and archetypal within.

There are four themes: childhood, death, despair, words.

Each group went back to an original nucleus, a sort of pure primary colour, hovering above the earthly sphere, as well as an anti-primary nucleus, totally immersed within worldly matters. The idea is to develop crossovers between the four groups: primary nucleus --> anti-primary or vice versa, using four different sound groups articulated in transformation. [S. Movio]
