Nicola Sani: Dove Arrivano Le Nuvole Più Vaste
Format: COMPACT DISC
Fabbriciani, Roberto; Vidolin, Alvise
Physics, chemistry, biology, culture, history: the inextricable interweaving between all these faces of the prism called man (and music) seem to be captured in the six compositions - spanning a period of twenty years, from 1996 to 2015 – collected on this album. The constant projection towards the immensity of time and its unfolding in boundless space is the ground zero for the musical thought of Nicola Sani, who is perfectly familiar with the cosmic visions and tensions that, starting from different assumptions and tending towards different aims, pervade the work of Luigi Nono, Giacinto Scelsi and Karlheinz Stockhausen. A thought that is at the same time permutating and persistent, attentive to micro variations and sensitive to the sudden cataclysms of sound. Its material aspect, of physical energy, is confronted with chemistry: a particular type of chemistry, electronic chemistry, that is, the informed use of contemporary technology as a support and extension of the possibilities of instruments, their dilation in the space/time of listening. A space that is both interior and external; enclosed within a perceptual intimacy, projected into a sensory and visual dimension, indispensable to imagine and to which all traditional architectonic limits are bound.
