We have been invited to perform our Systema naturae with our friends of Schallfeld Ensemble as the final event of Time of Music Festival in Viitasaari, Finland, on 11/07/2022. Lots of work and traveling, but lots of fun too.
On 17/06/2022 it was pleasure to discuss about Claudio Paolucci’s Cognitive Semiotics in the context of the seminars by Vittorio Gallese’s on his Neuroscience & Humanities YT channel, with Claudio and Vittorio themselves and Fausto Caruana. In case, you can see it here. Very happy of it, apart from regularly mispronouncing Godfrey-Smith as Godfrey-Lewis (why? Argh!)
With my supergroup Arto fantasma we have been invited on 14/06/2022 to play live the music for Il jockey della morte as the opening event of the 150 jubilee of the impressive Teatro Dal Verme in Milan.
This year SMC has not been organized by me (as the previous two online edition, blame COVID). It was in St. Étienne and with my colleague Valeriya Korol we presented a paper, “For LISA. Music Composition from Gravitational waves” explaining the process that went from Valeriya’s GWD data, for the LISA mission, to my piece for prepared piano. On July 28th we also had the chance to present it at LISA meeting. You can check the paper here. And the music is here.
On 28/05/2022 we celebrated the 25th jubilee of the Master programme I am directing, Master in Digital Technologies for Communication aka MATEC, University of Torino. An amazing day we had with our guests! Seven hours of YouTube here.
Thanks to Tempo Reale, on 04/05/2022 I had the chance of doing live coding (first time ever in a proper sense…) in the homage they paid to the great Pietro Grossi. So I played my SuperCollisione PiGra, of course with SuperCollider. Here it is on YouTube.
Thanks to Marco Masoero, I’ve been invited for the Teknologhia cycle of events, inside Polincontri, Politecnico di Torino. In the occasione Carlo Barbagallo and Elaine Bonsangue have shot and edited a wonderful documentary on some of my works, here on YouTube. We discussed it live on 22/04/2022 at Politecnico di Torino.
With my pal Mauro Lanza we had the chance to have our Systema naturae cycle performed twice by the amazing London-based ensemble Explore, first in Den Bosch for November Music (three times in 06-07/11/2021), then in Huddersfield for HCMF (18/11/2021). Bonus! Impressive footage of the cycle produced here!
On 16/10/2021 I’ve been invited to play at Parade électronique, Teatro Arsenale, Milan. Thanks to the crew at MMTCreativeLab. I performed a set called “Paesaggio con figure”, with radio and custom zither (“cetri”). Live rec on YouTube here. Dialogue with Jacopo Panfili is here.
