The zone of Traitors to their lords, created by Francesco Ameglio.

“While composing I’ve tried to picture the space and the damned within a suspended moment free of any time structure, a frozen moving picture where Dante (and the listener) have the chance to let their thoughts blending with obscure materials. 

“The focus is on the environment, its mental representation and its power to activate deep states of meditation both in the dark and the light corners of our inner self.”

Part of the Inferno project by Cities and Memory to imagine and compose the sounds of Dante’s Hell, marking the 700th anniversary of The Divine Comedy.
Eighty artists from around the world each composed the sounds of a different zone of the poet’s journey through the Inferno.
