Hox on Beckett, for violin, viola oboe and bass clarinet, was born from the meeting between my research around the biological processes of development, and a brief poem by Samuel Beckett.
Both of these elements converge on a poetics based on an immanent naturalism characterised by a general economy of strong gestural expressiveness, were the choise of processes and structures involved in the piece are fused with the poetical direction of the work.
The poem become a sort of human being that borns, grows and dies and all his course is wrote on is DNA: the phonems, the sound of his words.
“Hox” is the “regulator gene” of the morphogenesis, the system that he uses to organize the development of the human being is transfer in music to realize a sort of evolutive paradigm.
