In Come Frecce nella Tua Mano the music is entirely build on the duration and the sound quality produced by a lengthwise bowing which starts from the left hand fingering position and moves on the fingerboard towards the bridge.
The musical development of this gesture consists in a sort of voyage of the bow along the strings, whose path – or “choreography” – is the core of the composition. Electronic gives an acoustic enlargement of the sound produced by the bowing, and it's almost integrally based on filtering processes.
