One says Mexico: The Mexican Soundscapes of Stefano Scodanibbio

Abstract : This essay presents and discusses one of the most ambitious and personal art projects of the Italian double-bassist and composer Stefano Scodanibbio (1956-2012): his Hörspiel One says Mexico. In the composition of this work, Scodanibbio used three main types of materials in heterogeneous sound spaces: fragments of pieces for solo guitar or two guitars, which he composed during his stays in Mexico; soundscapes recorded in Mexico during many of his trips; and the texts of twenty-four foreign writers about Mexico (read by a variety of speakers). The three elements are mixed in the work, which consists of four contrasting movements with independent formal structures, in the manner of a sonata cycle. One says Mexico is an intimate tribute to Mexico, a sound portrait, and a musical means of remembering a country that the composer loved and where he decided to die.
