Relectures is a series of several confrontations between musical pieces of the past and their contemporary relecture. The latter appears in form of a ruin of isolated fragments in which the ancient piece seems to resonate.
From here emerges a kind of “discourse of the absent”, where the relevance of the resultant material is pushed into a perceptual background, letting the real foreground of the aesthetical experience be constituted by other elements such as the memory of the unheard, the questioning of our listening habits of past musics or the way in which every listener reconstructs for him or herself (“re-read”) the incompleteness of the original work.
