Il culto del dio Fujin

Il culto del dio Fujin (For solo flute) (Ugo Raimondi)

About creative work

The piece called “Il culto del dio Fujin” (performed in the video by the Italian flutist Benedetta Ballardini) describes the prayer of a pilgrim on a mountain. It is for Fujin, the Japanese wind god.

The piece begins with several references to the element of air, through which you can hear, in brief moments, the voice/presence of the god Fujin (represented by the melodic fragment of Sol-La-Re-Do-La).

When the winds have subsided, the pilgrim begins his prayer towards Fujin, who responds with the melodic fragment previously heard and entrusted to the voice of the performer (like a sort of echo in the wind). The pilgrim becomes more enterprising trying to approach the god with the spirit, sure of having entered into his graces. Fujin rejects him! The winds return and the voice of God among them, angrier than before. The pilgrim finds his own humility and goes back to pray. The second invocation gradually transforms into a new twister that tests him. This time Fujin is convinced by the man’s soul and agrees to rejoin with him.

The piece ends with Fujin’s voice manifesting itself in all its clarity and guiding the pilgrim towards the final destination, that has always been forbidden to him and now is represented by the note MI, never heard during the piece.
