Program note

A desire of finding a deeper take, a wider exploration of my recent music, led me to rethink some of my latest works. Trasparente II represents accordingly a sort of investigation of music objects that I've being experiencing while composing its predecessor Trasparente. Focusing and valuing a large amount of these musical objects, dramatically affected the piece's overall structure and form, reminding me that a piece of music is a dynamic object, whereas any sort of change, in any sort of place, redefine decidedly it's whole nature. Music ideas, as any kind of non intellectual intuition, often need a wider space to express and define themselves, and a new instrumentation (Trasparente II has a different set-up from it's predecessor), it's an ulterior way of rethinking the nature of its objects an deepening their nature and expressive potentialities.
