Notes

  • Program notes: 

    Written in 4 audio channels, the prelude to Heart of Darkness initiates the scenic radio drama that bears the same name (on the homonymous work by J. Conrad). Inspired by the Hell of Dante Alighieri, Conrad, he embodied an inner journey to human consciousness, to his struggle between savagery and reason, between approaching God or believing God. This prelude introduces us into that world, in those dark places of each one in which we contact our animal part, our repressed shadow and desire for power relative to both the material and the subjection of who we have next.
