Demetrio Stratos, the voice as an instrument

MAXXI Auditorium – admittance € 5
curated by Mario Sesti

An extraordinary journey through the 1970s by way of stories of people, phenomena and movements, with films and eye-witness accounts

The protean strength of the voice, the power of a body, the radical rebellion of the sound: like the great heroes of rock the meteoric and awe-inspiring career of the Area singer made a burning impression on musical culture and mythology. The screening of the documentary film will be followed by a conversation focusing on one of the most surprising and mysterious phenomena in musical innovation and experimentation of recent decades.
