the dance of nothing/dança do nada
is a new piano composition inspired by the work of Fernando Pessoa and his famous heteronym, Alvaro de Campos.
The piano piece was recorded live at Casa Alvaro de Campos (CAC) in Tavira, Portugal, and is accompanied by a video I made on the same day.
Não sou nada.
Nunca serei nada.
Não posso querer ser nada.
À parte isso, tenho em mim todos os sonhos do mundo.
I’ll never be anything.
I can’t wish I were anything.
Even so, I have all the dreams of the world in me.
from the poem “Tabacaria” by Alvaro de Campos
