A closed book: virgin substance.
Opening the book: substance working.
Coming from the sea, the matter is attracted by a black hole.
The black hole: History. Fantasia, tripla, Renaissance dance, lamento, motet. Collapse: just the salt, free from waters, can escape.
Salt as crystallization, solidification, stability, balance of its components properties.
Closing the book: substance has been made fertile.
Salt, whose taste is indestructible, is also symbol of friendship with Antonio Politano, hand-working alchemist of valuable sounds.
