Major project:

PENSATO: The Imaginary Note

PENSATO: The Imaginary Note is a graphic score with three movements, designed to explore how repetition becomes rhythm. It is an instrument that becomes you, a multiverse people keep coming back to.

Taking playfulness and improvisation as fundamental characteristics, the score communicates through colours and patterns instead of written information. Each movement transforms the reading process into a quasi-musical experience, where reading becomes an execution of a rhythmic sequence. It invites audiences to feel the sound as a texture and to become its co-producers.
