“Sonata Per Eterna” it is a personal composition in between spirituality and science, in which the meaning of some combinations of
words are connected to selected self-recorded electromagnetic radiation, signals from the outer space ( the sun, meteor), VLF
(Natural Radio phenomena), and Radio wave communication (morse code, air communication, naval communication, and VHF).
This piece is inspired by my personal romantic idea feed it also by scientific notions about the journey of the soul after death to
perpetual motion in the universe.
“The signal of the soul thought as a pure energy form leaves the body and reach the outer space passing across cosmic storms,
planets, pulsar stars, black holes, intergalactic dust, stellar winds to enter in the Krasnikov tube: a distortion of space-time that
can be intentionally created in the wake of travel close to the speed of light. Through it, the soul will be able to reach the final
destination discovering “Eternal” in another universe. A piece of meteor comes back to earth as a symbol-messenger, bringing
with it the secret of a new beginning of life. ”
During the performance, the composition is played in real-time with the use of tape recorders, reel to reel tape machine,
antenna and a meteorite.
“Sonata Per Eterna” is dedicated to my father Giuseppe Zapparoli.
(He was self-taught poet, singer-songwriter, composer, musician).
