Ant Mill / Settima Estinzione

Originated from an art residency aimed at exploring universal themes such as evolution and extinction in close relation to the environmental crisis, the project is expressed by a fifty-minute performance that integrates an audio-visual narrative which evokes the cyclicality of terrestrial life, inquiring the man / nature relationship and the results of this interaction.

The body of texts, from which the seven tempos of the musical suite arise, are inspired by the flooding of the Cervo torrent - Piedmont, 2020 - the damage of which led to the destruction, among others, of the Hydro artistic research and experimentation center (Fondazione Pistoletto).

The poetic restitution of this catastrophic event unfolds through a mestizo sound between folk, post rock, electronic and jazz, in an overall structure that refers to the prog aesthetic. The visual imagery is inspired by the romantic concept of ruins as well as cyclicality and cosmogony.
