“Motum” means motion, and this is a central theme in the 3 pieces by composer Claudio F Baroni on this album. The concept is central to Baroni’s work, and is explored musically and formally in his layered, dynamic, sophisticated style. The breathtaking pieces take the listener on a meandering path, starting from the origin of sound.
Solo VIII – AIR
In CirCles II
“Inside each sound, I become aware of multitudes of processes, of emerging micro-voices.
How many voices? How many bodies? How many sounds?. Listening to Claudio Baroni’s music makes me unsure how to tell: but from within the sound, I do hear countless bodies and voices sing.”
— Samuel Vriezen, Amsterdam 2018.
