La notte negli abissi is a sound journey into darkness, into the absence of light, into that biological universe where the human being in excluded or enters only thanks to recklessness, stubbornness and technique.
Featuring Claudio Ripa - the Italian legendary apnea diver - and marine biologist Giovanni Russo.
Music by Einstürzende Neubauten and Nino Bruno.
Sound excerpts from 1954 Richard Fleischer’s movie Ventimila leghe sotto i mari.
