Notes on this piece
I have been asked many times  why our music creates unease  in listeners.
I think it is because  it embodies  existence itself  through its representation of the anguish of the unforeseeable.

This music is the epiphany of Apollonian.

Giulio Colangelo

Apollo’s dart

Since the dawn of time humanity has roamed like a beggar seeking life’s meaning : History is this.
The unknowing wayfarer finds immense pleasure in the comforts of a journey’s end, unaware that he is no real traveller and his destination is ephemeral.
Humanity has reached heights of knowledge without this meaning but at the same time its absence has led to  eternal torment.
The Greeks knew this. Perpetual suffering is intolerable for man. Its alleviation needed the crystallization of the chaos.
Thus came about “Apollo Loxos”2 whose tongue was far from human speech.
“The Lord whose oracle is at Delphi neither speaks nor conceals, but gives signs”3.
Man is not tormented by Evil or by Good: he is tortured by the indefinite.
Apollo ruptures human praxis with his arrows from afar, their alien power  overcoming  human nature.
He symbolizes Being that suspends becoming in the very instant the dart tears the flesh.
Pain, humanity’s essence, forces man to struggle with his own self, to  suspend his  outward gaze  and to turn it inward.
It is a different element insofar as it identifies the unknown within ourselves.
Humanity needs to give a form to the indefinite.
God has to shoot  the dart, man has to stem the wound.

Angelo Tavolaro
