Label: Die Schachtel
My music is the result of a long period of meditation - an act of complete self-recognition. I realised that the so-called “discourse on the evolution of musical language” no longer interested me. I considered it a nuisance and I clearly felt that it was false, schizophrenic, insincere and imposed by the current ideology, which is so difficult to reject. I had to admit that it was “myself” the real object of my interest and that whatever I was going to do would be reflected directly into my actions, my music, dance and painting.
I have completely refused either the idea of organising sound or trying to establish any kind of relationship between movement and signs. I want to turn my experience into consciousness, while rediscovering the true and essential gesture and at the same time having the courage to manifest it openly. I also understood that authenticity lies neither in the “intentional act”, which was the basis of my previous work – which I don’t reject anyway – nor in a naïve and extemporaneous “spontaneity”, but rather in what could be called a “conscious spontaneity”. It becomes therefore possible to live any moment of time in just the way one really wants to; one can observe him or herself while transforming an impulse into action, being fully aware of the completeness of that moment. This is when beauty is born. I can feel it springing from the self-awareness, a “self” that transcends “ego”, language and time, and which can give expression to universally accepted elements.
I am no longer interested in the production of creativity, but rather in its expression, in the manifestation of a truly creative existence. This is in no way a “tabula rasa”: I don’t think it will ever be possible to avoid conditioning factors – I simply do not identify myself with them anymore. I reject the formal organisation of sound as well as the tight relationships imposed on both sound and movement; I reject any form of rationalisation that comes from the outside, like some sort of imposed rhythm. I respect the vital and biological rhythm only and, above all, the ontological one. From now on I will work on the primary subject: the living human being.
