The woman in the moon, op. 110
(String quartet, acoustic guitar, oboe, clarinet and percussion)
This piece came from the original sound track of a homonymous American movie, directed by Ariana Kimberly. The story tells us how an anorectic woman saves herself from dying, after joining a Hindu group in the Arizona’s desert.Like in psychoanalysis, it is a trip to the subconscious and a real fight against the mental issues that torment us and atrophies essential feelings - just like the wish for being alive.That trip is a long one, a tough one, sometimes tumultuous; conducting to an admirable feeling of inner peace which determinates the reconciliation of life.Apart from any ethnographical purposes, I tried to make use of some unusual scales – eventually originals, invented by me…- which could also bind themselves someway to an aesthetical expression of Hindu’s roots.
