Eyes Draw Circles of Light Nicola Giannini

Eyes Draw Circles of Light explores specific aspects of the human unconscious, characterizing that brief moment when we are about to fall sleep. Through sound spatialization, a multidimensional unconscious representation was created that evokes the relationship between psyche and body. The fast and involuntary body movements, hypnic jerks, that may occur at that time have been underlined. The work is a collaboration with the artists Elisabetta Porcinai and Alice Nardi, who wrote a poem for it, and aims to find a balance between elegance and experimentation, femininity and masculinity. The text was interpreted by Elisabetta and then elaborated by the composer. The work was composed for a dome of speakers.
