 *2024 stock*  120 true and oxymoronesque scores-instructions composed by Frédéric Acquaviva between 2015 and 2017 in Berlin.
Traitor to his country, Frédéric Acquaviva composes against adversity and for more than a quarter of a century, a bordeline and transgender musical work, with the modus operandi “Never repeat yourself”. “The 120 Days of Musica” aren't Fluxus gags, nor imaginary lettrist works, nor situationist ambiant derives, nor actionist actions, nor contemporary music from ancient times, but 120 true and oxymoronesque scores composed between 2015 and 2017 in Berlin. 
Sodomisation of the “musical domain” or terrorist attack against a sclerotic music world and a decomposed society, would “The 120 Days of Musica” be that new, magnanimous and long waited for “Art of the Fugue”? 

“This cycle is destined to be performed entirely or by fragments, during 120 days or on a single evening.
Those pieces are true scores that need to be performed, so one can understand the quantity of “music” each piece is embedded with.
Merci de votre incompréhension.”
