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.
