Enzo Favata Solo – StarshipProject
ABOUT THE PROJECT
A new experience in the world of sound at the border between past and future, where bass clarinet, soprano saxophone, benas, duduk and concertina dialogue in real-time together with live electronics. This dimension carries a mystical charm while Favata plays together with his own clones, realizing a refined electronic interaction that sometimes generates the listening of 5 instruments at the same time. In the performance the are many allusions to the styles that influenced the Sardinian artist from jazz, to electronic music, world music, classical music, holy music and cosmic sounds.
Starship is a journey through a borderless sound connected to archaic landscapes, forgotten melodies and melodies from the future that reveal to the audience an original geography of the Heart seen from the universe “where everything is smaller and linked together”.
