The submission (four volumes and a CD) includes a Portfolio and a Commentary. The portfolio containes eight pieces, Solitudo, Argumentum, Recordatio, Illuminatio, Transfiguratio, Ludus Aetemus, Mens Sana in Corpore Sano, Monstrum Horrendum. The commentary is divided in the following seven chapters: introdution, the Latin words of the pieces' titles, the relationship between the Latin words/letters of the words and the melodic material, the influences on the piece's conception, the influences on the conception of the form and and gestures, the influences on the scenery, performance and lighting and conclusion. The CD contains a live recording of two pieces mentioned before: Solitudo and Argumentum. On the whole, the portfolio and the commentary are a contribution to the Arts' World and provides the aesthetic and conceptual thoughts involved in the musical creation of these specific pieces. However, a paragraph of Carl Jung's book - Modern Man in Search of a Soul - was always kept in my mind and will be in the future: "I do not forget that my voice is but one voice, my experience a mere drop in the sea, my knowledge no greater than the visual field in a microscope, my mind's eye a mirror that reflects a small corner of the world, and my ideas - a subjective confession."
