Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. REQUIEM by Carlo Forlivesi is an 8-channel electronic music work composed in 1999 and subsequently revised in 2007. It is conceived as an acoustic rite, an electronic poem in three parts - Komm, Les pleurs and ( ) - separated by a period of silence. During a performance there is, in the darkness, an array of eight speakers with eight channels, to which correspond as many columns of light. It is requested that the composition end without applause. Through concrete and synthetic music this work comprises a selection of the sounds, developed electronically, of ritualistic objects used in various cultures around the world: little bells, pipes, glasses, matches, a rain stick, a dobachi (a ritual Japanese instrument), together with a chord played on a baroque violin from the Passacaglia of Heinrich Biber.
