“Santo per Amore”, is an electronic multimedia processing for vocals, guitar, laptop, images and videos, in which artists Leila Bahlouri, Ynaktera and Scual reinterpret the work “I canti di Nazarena” of the German poet Wilhelm Waiblinger.
The work is carried destructing the consecutio tempurum of the compositional approach, through the synthesis of sounds, moving in the reading of poetry, stripped of its value in time, to emphasize the importance and power of the concept content. A chorus of voices slowly compose the evolution of the ideas of the poet, not in a linear fashion, but as the sum of intimate feelings, projected in a wider and rarefied scene, universalizing the purity of love and recognition of compliance that it deserves.
Meter and rhythm are the elements of a fragmented emotion that permeates the opera to the user appropriating it.
Poetry then stripped, covered with synthesis of sound and image, the sum of the inner thoughts of Waiblinger re-interpreted, and contextualized in now-days that has a great need to express am high feeling, those whom love can sublimate for the beloved.
