Il rumore dell’universo
Spain, 2022, 25'
Many have first known him at the 2022 Sanremo festival, with his demure, far from flashy, studiedly minimal attire. A singer-songwriter needs his guitar more than glitter and sequins. This is Giovanni Truppi: little form and much substance, in antithesis with the destructive introduction into modern-day society of the spectacle. This is what stimulated the interest of Gabriel Azorin who, in the short Il rumore dell’universo (Tutto l’universo is also the title of Truppi’s song collection released in 2022) explores the public and private dimensions of a shy, unconventional artist, showing unproductive sessions in the recording studio, interviews with the press, moments of daily life, and the complications implied by an intense relationship, with its ups and downs. Those who love him will want to know more; those who have ignored him so far will be intrigued. Those who are more interested in film style will find a great little example of the often untapped potential of the music documentary genre, when creative spirit and the research for new forms prevail over laziness.
