Sebastiano Dessanay is one of the 20 musicians who interpreted one of songwriter Gianfranco Cossu‘s graphic illustrations called Fenotoli. The 20 illustrations have been recently self-published in a volume, containing a QR code for each artist which sends to a private YouTube video of the interpretation.

In Gianfranco’s words:

What are fenotoli?
Fenotoli are doodles that holds in itself all the music in the world. If you look into it you start hearing the music. Moreover, it has names that make you laugh.

Where do the names come from?
Well they are a further sound suggestion, meaningless free phonemes that suggest a spoken sound.
