Orc degli Zu

Orc degli Zu

Agraduate of Rome’s Fine Arts Academy, Luca T. Mai, together with Massimo Pupillo and Jacopo Battaglia, formed Zu, which has created a highly original sound. As image-related technology has developed, Mai began returning to “visual material,” becoming interested in and having fun with video editing and creating images that interact with his musical compositions. He is currently elaborating and constructing a “composite” on Adolf Hitler.

Orc: The word Orc, Orcus in Latin, is used in Virgil’s Aeneid to describe Enea’s descent into the Underworld. For our ancestors, entrance into the Underworld took place through Lake Avernus between the sulfur mines of Pozzuoli and Cuma. The video opens with the actual entrance into the
Cumaean corridor that led to the sacred cave of the Sibyl and pays homage to the symbolic journey into the Underworld, with nihilist implications that leave no room for redemption or rebirth.
