"Il Gioiellino", "Il Divo", "La ragazza del lago", "A quiet life", "Gorbaciof", "The friend of the family", "Working slowly" ... These are just some of the films to which Teho Teardo has lent his music, setting himself among the new champions of the soundtracks.
The composer now approaches another type of images, the photographs of Charles Fréger. The "Music for Wilder Mann" project, which takes place on Wednesday, January 23 at the Spazio Alfieri in Florence, is inspired by the images contained in the book "Wilder Mann, the figure of the Wild Man".
"Music for Wilder Mann" is a special event presented for the first time in the form in which the entire album was originally conceived, in 2013: Teho Teardo's electronic instruments are flanked by two cellos (Laura Bisceglia and Giovanna Famulari), a viola (Ambra) Chiara Michelangeli).
Each song corresponds to an image, very high, vertical and threatening. The photographs of Fréger projected behind the musicians, like huge, iconic and pagan altarpieces, watch us throughout the concert.
The collaboration between the composer and the French photographer is focused on the musical and photographic research of the figure of the wild man, angel or demon, personification of our desires or faults. A need that digs into our deepest aspirations and palpitations, men who yearn for primitive, archaic instincts perhaps never quite asleep, despite the modern era of technology, too many words to read and too many images to watch, in the siege of data to which we are subjected to.
To sink in emotion and to measure with the sound the reflections that it leaves in us, this is "Music For Wilder Mann". The appearances of Wilder Mann, the monsters photographed by Charles Fréger in the book of the same name that has already become a classic, generate a disturbance that Teho Teardo's music gives us back in terms of sound.
Fear and fright induce a strange form of attraction for these futuristic beings but from the dawn of time, dressed in fur and with animal teeth, surmounted by horns or antlers to turn into bears, wild boars, monsters and devils with aim to terrorize us.
An anthropological survey that documents the need for wildness that is in us.
Photographs that disturb and represent something remote, ancestral, far from our time but still recognizable.
No nostalgia for the past: the Wilder Mann, the futuristic ancestors, become pagan folk, electronics and bows do not care about the passage of time that returns the present from the dawn of time.
Music asks for freedom to be what it wants in every place, it is an emotional report from the other, an atavistic remnant that reverberates between synthesizers and strings.
In a moment of the concert thirty percussionists will materialize, who will play plates and gongs, pushing all the frequencies of the sound in the sky.
Teardo's music attracts and lets itself be freely attracted by other art forms, outlining, in "Music for Wilder Mann", a new relationship between traditional instruments and electronics.
