Stefano Scodanibbio: Da una certa nebbia (2002)


Scodanibbio passed away earlier this year, one of the last in the line of wonderful Italian composers of the twentieth century. There is a fellow outside my window now loudly cutting grass while I am listening to this really quiet and thoughtful exploration of sound (below). It works on some strange level. I know that most people would consider folks like Nono, Scelti, Scodanibbio or Sciarrino to be pretentious academic composers, but they really did contribute (and are still contributing in Sciarrion’s case) an incredible amount of knowledge regarding the nature of sound and therefore the essence of what is and is not music.
