Sott'acqua, op. 17.3 (1999)

Composed, pre-planned, notated music and non-notated music that on the whole could barely be notated at all, and is created in the moment: these meet each other here. The borderline between them can be very fi ne, nebulous or misty and blurred. As if on the surface of water, two worlds meet that, despite a certain degree of kinship, are founded on different laws. 60% of the world’s surface is covered by deep seas that hide within them, from 800m down, strange creatures of which we are as yet only dimly aware. These bear the incredible pressure with ease and orientate themselves in the cold darkness primarily by means of gentle light and sideline organs that can be compared to our ears in the way they perceive the most minimal changes of pressure.
