Termiti is a study about decomposing matter.
Concrete sounds, human sounds, coming from the real world and carelessly left to rot. Turned into a new ecosystem, a bog hosting new saprophytic life forms.
The swarming mass of micro-sound, randomly storming around, fleshes these materials, building new shapes in which, looking carefully, is still possible to grasp ruins of the original components.
This particular version of the piece is especially composed for the Apulian saxophonist Francesco Massaro and is accompanied with a graphic score that provides rules for improvisation.
This version of the piece has been released in Francesco Massaro’s Album “Maniera Nera”.
