Synopsis:
The film’s music for violin, classical guitar and electronics, enhances the gentle and poetic visualization of an idea:
‘The leaves no longer silent, sing the song of the trees’. The film’s themes combine images of nature with the journey of a wooden boat on stormy seas and a wooden guitar representing the language of sorrow. Both objects once living trees, now changed through man’s ability to transform nature.

Synopsis in Italian:
il canto degli alberi
Lamusica del filmato include violino, chitarra classica e suoni elettronici e accompagna la visualizzazione gentile e poetica di un'idea: "Le foglie, non più mute, cantano il canto degli alberi".
I temi del video uniscono immagini tratte dal mondo naturale al viaggio di una barca di legno nel mare in tempesta e a una chitarra in legno che rappresenta il linguaggio del dolore.
Entrambi gli oggetti erano un tempo alberi, modificati dall'abilità dell'uomo di trasformare la natura.
