ZONE logo

Z O N E: an idea and an ensemble in continuous evolution that revolves around my music. I play LiveElectronics or MIDIElectricGuitar whose fingerboard, as a virtual ensemble, is crossed by the inhabitants of ZONE. These artists are among todays protagonists of contemporary thought. Skattered all over the globe, they flow through the ZONE: on stage we always are more people than audience can see. mp

transcriptions

TRASCRIVERE o TRADURRe? – transcription or translation?

Talvolta è solo questione di intendersi sui termini: trascrizione in musica e traduzione letteraria sono pratiche storicamente e tecnicamente distinte, ma preferisco pensare alle mie trascrizione come a “traduzioni”.
Non solo corrette trasposizioni di note ma soprattutto trasferimento del pensiero compositivo da uno strumento all’altro, con le dovute assunzioni di responsabilità per ciò che verrà omesso o aggiunto.
Quasi un lavoro di immaginazione filologica che pone me stesso, compositore vivente, negli immaginari panni di un altro e precedente compositore: cerco un pensiero parallelo che assuma quello originale come guida, sfruttando i suggerimenti che vengono dal nuovo organico per giungere ad un’altra visione, se non anche invenzione.
Alla fine, cioè, vorrei che l’oggetto tradotto fosse a sua volta un “originale”, pensato per nuove pagine, nuova lingua e nuovi strumenti. 

Sometimes it is just a matter of agree to terms: transcription into music and literary translation are two distinct practices, but I see  my transcription as “translations”.
I am not just talking about a correct transpositions of pitches but, mainly, about
transfer of the compositional thinking from one instrument to another, with the due responsibility for what will be changed, omitted as well as added.
It is almost a work of philological imagination: a living composer who places himself in the imaginary role of another (ancient) composer. So I look for a parallel thought that assumes the original text as a guide, exploiting the suggestions coming from the new instrument that I am translating for, to reach a further vision, or, why not, an invention.
In the end, I mean, I would like the translated object to be as an “original” conceived for those new pages, for the new language or for the new instruments.
