ORAFDUM - Oggetto Ritrovato Alla Fine Di Un Millennio / Object Found At The End Of A Millennium

ORAFDUM is a "manifesto" piece. The very origin of the work is an allegoric tale about the contemporary world told by Omar Cais Rashid, a misterious oriental (?) voyager searching for sound-art and music in the western world (the name is created with the letters/sounds of the name Riccardo Massari) . ORAFDUM is one of the possible representations in a sound form (gesture and sculpture are also present) of the content of the allegoric tale. The message is about the fusion of art expressions for a possible future in the arts, something that actually happened since the sixties. The work is a comment on bad habits in the art production and in western approach to the arts.
The work of Spiritini has been realized in the form of a small pyramidal score and/or in the form of a sound installation with sound-reacting sculpture. Here you can see a video realization (created for the CD-Rom in 1999 by Alex Schaub in Amsterdam), a simulation of the actual installation.

ORAFDUM es una pieza "manifesto". Parte de un cuento alegorico sobre el mundo contemporáneo visto de parte del misterioso viajante Omar Cais Rashid en búsqueda de las artes musicales y sonoras en el mundo occidental. ORAFDUM es una posible representación en forma sonora (gestual y plástico) del contenido de este cuento alegórico. La pieza de Spiritini está realizada en forma de una partitura-tridimensional y/o como instalación plástico-sonora . Estas versiones representan un objeto mágico que es la Llave del cuento: una pirámide que es la llave de la búsqueda de Omar Cais Rashid.
