Il joue un concert Sandwich

“A few years ago, on a desolated island, I listened to the structured singing of seagulls that sounded as a symphony. A few years later I was invited to the ‘Rossini Opera Festival’. I remember the episode, written by Stendhal, for the opening of the play by Signor Bruschino, directed by Rossini himself: the violins had to stop with every stroke and gave a flick to the candle-bracket with their fiddle-stick. Here you have one of the first felonies to the melody and to the virtuosity. On this occasion I allowed myself to develop for the seagulls a school of Italian melodies, and after a few minutes the results became very clear to me: numerical translated. The sandwich Rossini-seagulls incomplete. The only ‘Capriccio’ was used accidentally with ‘Filter Colours’.” Luciano Fabro

This work is accompanied by a music of Vedoya & Gioachino Rossini.
