La vie en Bleu
Mix: Tony Regnauld
Electroacoustic soundscape, 11’36’’
The sea is the main character of the piece by Anna Raimondo entitled “La Vie en Bleu” (Life in blue). The sea is a strange variant of the radiophonic ether with its continuous wave-cycle, capable of creating pathways and connecting distant places. In this case, the two marine cities of Naples and Marseilles. They become the terminals of a radio bridge that extends under the water. Is the sea a primordial form of radio? Just think of those animals that communicate at very great distances in the deep oceanic waters, sending signals to be carried by the motion of the sea. This piece invites us to tune in to this sort of underwater radio. Becoming-whale. Becoming-dolphin. (text by Stefano Perna)

Mefite is an Italic Goddess venerated in central and southern Italy, especially in the Irpinia Region. Goddess of fertility, she presides over the passage from life to death. Tremendous Goddess who has her cult-place located in the Ansanto Valley, the mortal moat, where horrible gas emissions coming out from a cave kill who goes too close, carried by the wind. A mortal air that governs the complex articulation of this cult: to ingratiate the Goddess it is forbidden to come too close to her, because you could die; to go through the Netherworld, instead, the same caution is requested, because the Death could enter the lungs before the way through is reached. Death that hits without a single touch, carried by the air as if it was sound or radio waves. An air that challenges, as to give the opposite of what you desire, that invites us to move forward, towards the unfathomable zone that divides Life and Death.
