Mi Piace

Synopsis

Mi Piace is a film of made with the documentation of one performance to camera, where during a spurious singing rehearsal, the singer's body is progressively bound to test the changes in the voice. The film leaves ambiguity as to the exact nature of the events, which are presented as a diverse collection of documentation, hence suggesting a history.

The singer is asked to perform repeatedly a popular aria (O Mio Babbino Caro), at each repetition (itself interrupted in mid flow at different points) the singer's body is bound, starting from the ankles, and proceeding upwards. The section isolated in the soundtrack Mi Piace, is part of the aria and means  like' or in its original context 'I would like to'.
