- Fausto Romitelli: An index of metals (video opera)
Daisy Press, sopranoA video-opera by Fausto Romitelli (music) and Paulo Pachini (video) for soprano, ensemble, multiprojection (3 screens) and electronics An Index of Metals bears vigorous witness to this determination to go beyond: sizzling orchestration, electric and psychedelic; a voice which plays on effects, murmurs with reverb, cackles into a megaphone, screams like a pop star; and an electric guitar score of a kind that no ‘serious’ composer has ever written, sliding across an infinite range of tones with a lightness of touch and blurring of contours. But that’s not all. Something more funereal, more strongly dissolving is given off: a fierce melancholy, and the echo, as it were, of a long Gnostic lament over the fall of souls. Shortly before his death, Romitelli together with his friend Paolo Pachini and the poetess Kenka Lèkovich, resurrected the dream of a total scenic art in the manner of the Futurists: rhythms and gleams of light striking metals (for the video part), poems in iron and chrome singing of fusion with matter, acoustic/electric music highly amplified, filtered, spatialised, in as artificial a manner as possible… An Index of Metals, a paradoxical masterpiece, torn between heroism and exhaustion.
