Two works from different periods come together in this
"case-book": Ora (1997/2001) and Visitazioni (2011/ 2013).
Times ... ways ... experiences intersect. Ora is a single stream
of sounds and silences of 120 minutes. It can be "healed"
(replaced) according to the feel of the listener. Its division
into sections - like the same graphic score - have this unique
Headphone listening at a low volume is absolutely privileged.
Visitazioni, referring to similar principles but changing the
ways of approach, is a set of "invitations” toward a meditation
where perceptions, insights, visions are juxtaposed with
You look ("panels" that suggest a living are to be reassembled
for a personal itinerary) ... you listen ... you read, and
different plans reverberate one into another.
Both works can be enjoyed in their singularity or
simultaneously (one with headphone listening, the other with
ambient listening).
Both works (the first audio-only, the second multimedia )
were experienced as an encounter with your inner self ... as
a slow journey into one's inner self.
The boxset “Visitazioni” is a lavish set containing 13 charts
with various images and poetic texts, a video DVD, two audio
CDs. Its content changes in each box, so that they are all
unique sets. Every box is numbered.

Please, note that the 2 CDs of "Ora" enclosed in the Box are
the same as the double CD released in 2001, with the
original scores, the CD covers "reworked" and without the
booklet and the original cover.
