Between 2008 and 2009 I performed a series of live visuals with Ludovico Einaudi to introduce his forthcoming album Nightbook. I conceived the video as a visual instrument that establishes a dialogue with Einaudi's intimate and emphatic plays. We first performed at Cargo club in London a continuous play of variations around the themes Einaudi's new pieces with Robert Lippok at live electronics. Finally we performed for the album's premiere in Rome at the Auditorium Parco della Musica with a full string ensemble.
Following the project's title Nightbook, the video was a journey through our inner night thoughts toward the morning rebirth. I worked on an imaginary diary which pages hide of our innermost images. From lines and words emerge rivers, trees, rain or flying birds to evoke memories hidden in everyone subconscious. Finally the bright giant hypnotic Moon arises from the dark of the sea to awake us from such intimate experience and to guide us to a new collective rebirth.
