Work Introduction

In one episode, namely “Il Campo” (The Field), from my azione musicale “Cronaca del Luogo,” there is a virtual love duet. Two voices and several instruments “fall in love” and follow one another in a constantly renewing relationship.

As we all know, in true polyphony each voice contributes to the whole yet retains its own identity, if not complete autonomy. In Altra voce I have liberated one voice (mezzo-soprano) and one instrument (alto flute) from the whole and developed their respective autonomies and harmonic premises by, among other means, using live electronics.
