[Art - Official - Art Book] Irrisolto: partiture per corpi liberi

in collaboration with Annalisa Zegna

wear earplugs
tune into the heartbeat
listen to the stomach
feel the body

Irrisolto: partiture per corpi liberi (unresolved: scores for free bodies) originates from proposals from "other" experimental musical notations of the twentieth century. Sound poetry and concrete music have investigated the possibility of providing instructions that were somehow less constrained in the formal notation, and more open to chance, to the inspiration of the moment, to the search for synesthesia between different expressive practices.
Based on these insights, Irrisolto suggests that the audience - who also become the interpreter - isolate themselves from the everyday environment to immerse into the rhythm of their own lives, creating performances that can somehow establish new connections with the body and with the environment that the body lives and exist in. The instructions are simple; wear earplugs, so you feel less "outside" and hear more "inside", use your body, your heartbeat for rhythm, and freely create a performance in any way you can imagine, that responds to the emotional and compositional instructions arbitrated by the visual scores.
These performances, as well as establishing the relationships that Irrisolto is aiming for, acquire value as independent, autonomous performance pieces, provided they are performed in front of an audience. They are therefore unresolved because they continue to create resonance for individuals who are disposed to perform and hear/see, bodies that remain free to find their own form of expression.
