In April 6, 2014, the legendary Monte Verità Foundation, in Ascona, Switzerland, presented the historical world première of the solo piano concert Clue-Up Due Abyss by the composer Emanuel Dimas de Melo Pimenta, performed by the recognized Italian pianist Marco Rapattoni.
Clue-Up Due Abyss was composed between 2012 and 2013 to celebrate the 150 years of the birth and 95 of the death of the French composer Claude Debussy.
Emanuel Pimenta worked as composer with John Cage in the last seven years of his life and remained composer with Merce Cunningham in New York City over more than twenty-five years; he studied with the celebrated German composer Hans Joachim Koellreutter, who was pupil of Paul Hindemith, Hermann Scherchen and teacher of Luigi Nono and Karlheinz Stockhausen. Pimenta, who collaborated with the Locarno Video Art and Electronic Art Festivals, with Rinaldo Bianda and René Berger, between 1987 and 1996, works with cybertechnology and neurosciences in the elaboration of music and architecture.
Marco Rapattoni, Liszt Prize, former collaborator of Janos Starker and Joseph Gingold, former assistant of the famous Hungarian pianist Gyorgy Sebok and of Franco Gulli, has regularly performed at the Chicago's and Bloomington's Opera Houses, and has participated in numerous international festivals, from Baff Central Festival of Art in Canada to Ernen Musikdorf Festival in Switzerland among many others.
In Emanuel Pimenta's words, "Clue-up means something that is in the spirit of its time. We can say that it is 'tuned' with its moment. So, the translation of the title of the composition would be something like 'tuned key of the abyss'. Here, the abyss is the time. Its entire structure pertains to a logic that is strange to the Western music tradition. But, even such phenomenon is, often, subtle, delicate. A music like a kind of archipelago, full of silence. Islands of music. Islands connected by silence. Clue-Up Due Abyss is based on Images 1 and 2 for piano by Claude Debussy. The method of composition was not the virtual four-dimensional world as I've worked since a long time. Essentially, I worked on stochastic selection of frequencies, on the creation of specific groups, on the translation between different digital processes and, so, elaborating a principle of order in a non-hypotactic logic, inside a teleonomic environment".
Monte Verità is one of the most emblematic places all over Europe in the twentieth century, where some of the most important personages of culture and art of the last hundred years have been present, people like Hermann Hesse, Paul Klee, Nan June Paik, Edgar Morin, René Berger or Francis Ford Coppola among so many others.
Clue-Up Due Abyss is dedicated to Marco Rapattoni. In its integral version, the concert has three hours, but in its world première it will have only about forty minutes.
The world première of Clue-Up Due Abyss was presented by Lucrezia De Domizio, Baroness Durini, who worked over many years with Joseph Beuys.
