This section attests to the doubts and anxieties of Nono's last decade. It brings together his most radically questioning reflections, which go hand in hand with a poetic approach very different from that adopted in the past. It is marked by the productive uncertainties and the utopian openness that are typical of his last, but earnest, creative phase. The texts cover topics such as other ways of listening, and how to consider the field of sounds: not in relation to three or four sounds as Ligeti and Stockhausen or others do, but to maintain different subdivisions, different relationships, and the different capacity of the ear and especially of technique.

Keywords:   Luigi Nono, listening, sounds
