about

[ENGLISH]
The theme of Follia (in English: Madness) appears in music at the beginning of the fourteenth century. The first composer to write it down has been Arcangelo Corelli, in 1700, in the last of his twelve sonatas for violin and basso continuo. This theme inspired many important composers thereafter: Geminiani, Vivaldi, Bach, Handel, etc. With this elaboration I enjoyed composing an electronic version which melds real instruments with electronic ones.

[ITALIAN]
Il tema della Follia ricorre nella storia della musica almeno dal 1300. Il primo a scriverlo fu Arcangelo Corelli, nel 1700, l’ultima delle dodici sonate per violino e basso continuo. Il tema fu ripreso dai più illustri compositori (Geminiani, Vivaldi, Bach, Handel, e molti altri). Con questa elaborazione mi sono divertito a creare la mia versione elettronica, unendo alcuni suoni di strumenti acustici ad altri specificatamente sintetici.
