"Continuazioni uses the words "continuo" and "azioni" to reflect on the relationship between various sound durations, between action and contemplation, stopping and moving." The author combines graphic and traditional writing, experimenting with the sound of extended orchestra which he will develop further in the pieces that followed.
Sequences is a succession of soundscapes that include different levels of improvisation, musically and philosophically based on the principles of contrast.
