(Nostalghia paths, homage to Andrei Tarkovsky) by Giulio Aldinucci was built
- field recordings taken in Bagno Vignoni (Siena - Italy) in September
2012. This little Tuscan town is one of the most peculiar Tarkovsky's
Nostalghia location and it's characterized by a rectangular tank in
place of the main square, which contains water that comes from the
underground hot springs recordings
from the Nostalghia's set.
- various field recordings taken in Val di Merse (Siena - Italy) the
area where I was born and where I actually live. In Val di Merse is
also located the Abbey of San Galgano, another Tarkovsky's Nostalghia
location. The field recordings comprise sounds from a procession, the
melting snow, the small river Merse flowing...
- granulized fragments
of the Symphony No. 9 in D minor, Op. 125 by Ludwig van Beethoven. The
symphony is the preeminent composition of the Nostalghia's soundtrack.
The recordings of the hot springs taken in Bagno Vignoni some days ago
slowly merge with sounds coming from a set of 30 years ago, like
following eyes from a middle '800 daguerreotype portrait with one's
The aquatic sounds flow like a tale with the other different sounds
coming on their path like wayfarers, sometimes they follow the movie
narration and mood.
The granulized fragments of Beethoven’s Ninth Symphony come like a
soundtrack that suspend the time.
