Xing presents at Raum IN GIRUM IMUS NOCTE, an immersive sound performance by the italian composer Stefano Pilia (electric guitar and electronic manipulation) on the occasion of the live presentation of his new album.

IN GIRUM IMUS NOCTE ET CONSUMIMUR IGNI, a palindrome of uncertain date and origin, used by Guy Debord as a title for one of his experimental films, is a source of inspiration for Stefano Pilia's new solo guitar work released in 2019 by the Mialn based Die Schachtel label. At Raum, Pilia will give life to a performance with part of those new materials, using a compositional structure based on recursive cycles, in a symmetrical structure, which will accompany the listeners in the immersion and re-emergence from a meditative world. With explicit alchemical references, the sound matter should manifest itself here in a process and its consumption.
