Program note

I’m not tired to notice how the spite is a parasite on the intellingence.
Spite that gushes like rage, sometimes evidently but more often in sly way.
Thinking about these things, I didn’ write a piece to have relax. Unlike, maybe this piece need to be listened having a sort of nervousism inside ourselves. Through this feeling, it may be the right base to “live” a little bit more the music. And, I hope, have for a moment the impression to see the flux of rage I tried to write.
