Musical ensemble inspired by ancient sounds and Nature
The Murmur Mori ensemble was born in 2015, as an idea by Volpe Mirko and Kuro Silvia, having the goal of creating "new ancient music".
The project has its roots in the Middle Ages, centuries in which music was a vehicle for recreation, for social denunciation, but above all: a fundamental means of cultural information.
Murmur Mori does not propose an historical re-enactment, instead giving life to new music using ancient instruments reproductions and an early music language to create songs which recount actual themes, as in the Middle Ages was done, focusing on the relationship between the current society and Nature.
