Die Schachtel is proud to present Death by Water: a four-hand musique
concrète composed by Fabio Selvafiorita and Valerio Tricoli. This one track
disc has been realized between Milan, where it has been composed, and
Giudecca Island, in Venice, the location of the field recordings and
reel-to-reel tape treatments. The music stresses and questions the dramatic
and alchemical potential of a musical landscape marked by water, as the
work is intended to approach the fourth movement of T. S. Eliot’s poem “The
Waste Land”. Fabio Selvafiorita e Valerio Tricoli created a work full of
narrative suggestions, visceral and metaphysical at same time

IV. Death by Water

Phlebas the Phoenician, a fortnight dead, 
Forgot the cry of gulls, and the deep sea swell
And the profit and loss.
                       A current under sea
Picked his bones in whispers.  As he rose and fell
He passes the stages of his age and youth
Entering the whirlpool.
                      Gentile or Jew
O you who turn the wheel and look windward,
Consider Phlebas, who was once handsome and tall as you.
(T.S. Eliot, The Waste Land, 1922)
