Two-channel work for fixed media.
Composer: Fabio Fabbri
The “breath” in English, or “ruah” in Hebrew, or “qi” in Chinese, or “pneuma” in Greek, is the energy that gives life, the creative energy, but it is also music. Contrary to what one might think, it is not classifiable with absolute uniqueness as a nodal sound: although in fact, a noise nature may be evident, it is actually in effect a splined sound. Blowing the trumpet sound, it is sufficient to try to perform a long breath by hinting a scale whistled to realize it. Blowing the trumpet face of this sound object onto the trumpet of a trumpet becomes even more evident: we can indeed perceive the heights proper to the true fundamentals of the instrument! In the present acousmatic piece phonemes of the human voice and trumpet sounds interact (with techniques of crossed synthesis and not only) in a path marked by multiple orders of subrogation aimed at highlighting the multiple affinities between singing and brass playing: the human voice is the result of vibration, and the trumpet has its voice.
