Icaro is a site specific multimedia installation created by G. Ballatori-S. Luciani for InVisibile Festival 2012 edition. The ancient greek myth has inspired the creation of a room in which the progressive and cinematic aspect of the dissolution is strictly related with the disintegration of memories, desires, worlds.
The musical piece is a twelve minutes long electro-acoustic ambient loop that consider the elements of celestial bliss, struggle and inescapable death.
