Filena is a project born in 2015 in Bologna, which I had carried on for about a year among Bologna, Rimini and Riccione.
It was born as a sperimental project, with the aim of recording short pieces of improvisation on the piano, wherever I ended up to be, while people around me were completely unaware of the recording, in which they were included.
It’s a reflection about the awareness of the enormous number of things that happen without us noticing it, because we are way too busy concentrating on ourselves and on satisfying our ego, “speaking” instead of “staying” quiet and “listening”.
It is a reflection about the meaning of noise, which has not always only one interpretation.
I recorded everything with my old cellular phone, but i can’t remember anything about it, except of being android.
I played the pianos I found on my way, when I felt that I had to record something: they’re three of them, one in Bologna, one in Riccione, one in Rimini.
