Still Life v. IV is the forth scene of a large scale film opera. A representation of nature micro, macro and human elements, in a space without landmarks that becomes the stage, our surrounding, striped of the all opera theatrical connotations, and where the body is deliberately freed to move from diverse perceptional experiences and pleasures. The sonic and visual spaces become solid saturated and liquid, encircling our perceptions and stimuli. An immersion into a digitalised out-of sync and in-natural territory, partly abstract, recognizable or unknown, eloquently visionary.
Still Life v.IV is dedicated to Claudio Abbado, in Memoriam.
