Senza - Minimalismo tra musica e immagine
Isabella Fabbri, saxophones
Davide Finotti, piano
Francesca Occhi, video
Senza is the new project by Duo ff in collaboration with Francesca Occhi (visual artist): it is a performative installation dedicated to the minimalism as a form of art and as a way of living. 7 pieces written by notable minimalist composers (Nyman, Glass, Sakamoto, Reich, Adams, Fitkin, Pärt) are transposed in 7 original videos by Francesca Occhi, which underline 7 different aspects of the minimalism: energy, essence, repetition, structure, absence and lightness. Senza (that means "without" in Italian) is an homage to simplicity, a tribute to the essence of life.
