Hay que caminar

The last composition of Luigi Nono, written in 1989, Hay que caminar soñando, proposes a musical stroll which leads two violinists into various spaces throughout the work. Deliberately disturbing the order, which establishes a strictly fixed relationship between the stage and the public, the composer invites the audience to experiment the act of listening while in movement. Through the perception of different instrument qualities in diverse places and with different acoustics, the movement of listening itself operates on the public. The spectator can build his own story, intimately connected to space, by working on difference and contextualization. It is a way of underlining that the interpretation of an event is necessarily related to the place from which one perceives it.
