2015

Florence, Italy

Role

Composer

The Ascent of Orpheus was an immersive art installation of the image-art of Adi Da Samraj, installed for three months at the Bargello National Museum in Florence, Italy.

I was commissioned to compose the score to the video installation, which provided the sound throughout the historic gallery building, my 20 minute score looping for three months.

My score comprised a singing bowl group, choir, solo vocalists, woodwinds, guitar & electronics.

About the Bargello:

Occupying one of the oldest structures in Florence dating back to 1255, the building became the residence of the Bargello (head of police) in the 16th century. The building’s transition to a national museum dates to the mid-19th century. Today, the Bargello National Museum houses many important Renaissance works of art— including a rich collection of sculptural masterpieces by Donatello, Luca della Robbia, Verrocchio, Michelangelo, and Cellini—as well as major collections of bronzes, majolica, enamels, seals, ivories, amber, tapestries, furniture, textiles, and the very lavish collection of medals belonging to the Medici family.
