This Year's Visiting Professor

Stefano Gervasoni

"That which strikes us right away in the music of Stefano Gervasoni is the richness of its sonic invention, grounded on phenomena that are strongly individualized, rare timbres and inaudible blends. The sound there appears in its physical reality, like a quality, as the result of an internal dynamic, but also as a form of expression. This is not simple material, but a vibrant object, an energy, a way to become open toward the unknown. The evidence of this sonic result, with its characteristic immediacy, is at all times veiled by an almost imperceptible process of transformation that lies beneath. This tension is at the core of the notation."
