Swiss Alps: 2328 metres in altitude
-10°C. Wind, snow, clouds and sun.
A laid down vibraphone on a frozen lake.
Title and setting: we did not say anything else to Elio Marchesini to invite him to be protagonist of the film.
An imaginary motorway through the mountains where the wind runs, which breaks the ice, which draws the snow-clad landscape and where the metal’s vibration converses, disappears and resists the continuous gusts.
The whiteout is a visual dysfunction caused by whiteness of snow and clouds that confuses violently: the sky is falling.
All that remains is a lonely person, missing in the landscape, who plays a vibraphone and insists on don’t lose control.
