The title of the score is a tribute to the essential, luminous and vibrant painting of Mark Rothko and his contemplation of a space-colour capable of evoking mystical and immaterial atmospheres by interrogating the enigma of unexplored and silent depths. The work takes the form of a study of the material essence of sound, to which the sign imparts the expressiveness of form. Like a monochromatic painting, the score is inhabited by a suspended matter around which subtle plays of accumulation and micro-variations are drawn: a sound labyrinth where silence and saturation seem to mingle incessantly evoking a distant, absent world, where everything seems to turn into a nocturnal vision.
