Blind Sun is a sound piece of about 30 minutes made in collaboration with the Italian musician Roberto Francesco Dani and with the Portuguese singer Beatriz Ventura. It is the sound transposition of scientific data concerning the solar star. The soprano interprets the sound translation of the energy of the molecules that make up the Sun. The energy spectrum of elements such as helium, hydrogen, coal, iron, et, is transposed into different vocalizations, which are re-arranged and fused digitally, taking inspiration from the dynamics happening during nuclear fusion. This arrangement is immersed in the electro-sound interpretation of data of Solar Irradiance and World Energy Consumption from the last twenty years on planet Earth.

Nuclear fusion is, as George Bataille writes in the Accursed Share: "the source of life exuberant development. The origin and essence of our wealth come in the radiation of the Sun." In his book, the philosopher points out: "the need to study the system of human production and consumption within a much larger framework," acknowledging the "industrial network" as part of "a circuit of cosmic energy on which it depends, which it cannot limit, and whose laws it cannot ignore without consequences".
