In this performance I want to focus on italian music censorship: this project connects the country where we live, with some problems of our contemporary cultural age. The project will start exploring the archive from ex Discoteca di Stato (Istituto Centrale per i Beni Sonori ed Audiovisivi, Roma) in which the censorship started. The performance is a concert for cello and double bass, the musicians play some songs from Italian music censored repertoire. The songs were changed or deleted by the censors, the musicians will play them in their integrity and originality, without cutting any parts.
Speaking about the structure of the musical instrument, I modified them, adding fire on the bow line, as a reflection on the operation of cutting and destroying from censors. This transformation will destroy partially the music instrument and its notes. The aim of this work underlines important aspects of our contemporary situation in Italy, describing the current limitations through an analysis of music as a social mirror and trying to exorcise the limits.
