The Aporetic Music has been defined as one of the most relevant novelties of contemporary musical research in recent decades; founded by Patron in 1989/90 in France, it has had the opportunity to be welcomed and spread for its skeptical approach to all the things. With this work written in 1994, Patron analyzes a particular aspect of the society, disclosing theories that will only spread twenty years later. It is the result of a unitary project, Pillars is not only a contemporary musical composition, but a real social framework, to be experienced in person even before being interpreted, a futuristic innovative vision of music and of the relationship that involves the composer-interpreter-audience triad, offering through a writing that is only apparently essential, outstanding possibilities and interpretative freedom, which design and indicate an innovative progress in the musical research, capable of opening new horizons, in which gestures expand the artistic sharing, in a metacognitive process that transcends each material data, reinventing itself in its sociosemiotic expressiveness. A book to be interpreted on stage, as in everyday life.
