for organ (2007 | rev.2012) | 6 minutes
Premiere 30 December 2007, Festival Musicometa, Roma
Francesco Filidei, organ
The organ is a fascinating - and often mysterious - instrument, especially when one realizes the enormous acoustic distance associated with it: the distance between the performer and his instrument, the distance between the instrument and the listener.
Furtivo plays with this acoustic space by amplifying, even over-dimensioning it so as to create the illusion of music in the distance, only perceived as snippets of sound, barely letting the listener recognize a faint melodic outline.
