CORPORA SONI is a mini EP about the relation between body and sound. This relation is not intended as a "performance" but it's more like a "negative" performance; how much of my body has to be removed from the musical action to let this particular sound emerge?
As long as I act in an acustic space, this relation expresses the main difference between sound and silence - the amount of my presence in the continuum of the sound, from zero (silence) to maximum (full sound).
On one hand it is interesting that this presence is not linked to any quantity - a minimum presence could be an extraordinary point of differentiating between sound and silence (so I performed "Minimalia"), as well as a huge presence ("Corporale") leads to a main indifference between these two aspects of music.
On the other hand, the opening recording expresses another point that I feel essential in my work on percussions and improvvisation; the repetition (of a gesture) leads to substantial, irriducible differences. These differences are the only identifying description about what I played and what you are listening to.
The final recording is a meditation. The timing is shifting, unfixed but still recognizable while the space is broken and redefined at each appearence of sound.
