Notes on this piece

Fuoco fatuo
Fuoco fatuo (Ignis Fatuus) is centered in the materiality of the death (dryness, wood and skins, symbolic use of ratchet, whip, claves), and in its totally earthly transcendence that, between quotations from Bartók, Ravel and Shostakovich, reveals itself through the rhythm and the air of an unexpected bossanova – however very bare and slacked – and sublimates itself in a final, quasi-tribal, ostinato. An elaboration of the mourning for the transiency of the life and the things that pass through.The title refers to the spontaneous combustion of the corpses decomposition's gas in the cemeteries, but it's also evocative of a passion quickly exhausting, superficial, frivolous, fleeting, ineffectual.
