In Die Resurrectionis it takes its cue from various fragments of Gregorian chant of the twelfth century which are found in the Ravenna library and which were part of the Ravenna Christian liturgy of that period. The fragments used in this work are in particular a communio tropato from the Easter mass and two “ad processionem” antiphons.
“In Die Resurrectionis” was commissioned by the Ravenna Festival as an installation for the Ravenna Basilica of San Vitale and includes, in addition to the sounds, a visual part created by Gianfranco Lucchino. §The great reverberation typical of Christian churches, which in San Vitale is even more particular, being the church with an octagonal plan with a large women’s
gallery, provided the basis for the conception of electroacoustic sound.
The work in the laboratory involved a continuous comparison with the effect of the real environment, and the final mixing of the piece on eight tracks was carried out in the basilica.
