24/05/13 Randomw Walks: Xenakis and Varèse

Our spatialization of Xenakis’ Concret PH and Varèse’s Poème électronique, as reconstructed by the VEP Project, will be played on an 8-chan ring for the “Random Walks: Music of Xenakis and beyond” event, organised by The Fields Institute, together with the Perimeter Institute and the Institute for Quantum Computing in Waterloo, Canada.

Humbly proud to be there with my work on two so relevant music pieces.

Hommage to Enore Zaffiri

On March 27/28, together with Stefano Bassanese, we organized a two-day seminar dedicated to Italian pioneer of electronic music Enore Zaffiri. In the occasion, we discussed his opus and dedicated him a concert with electronic and instrumental music. I played my reconstructed version of Zaffiri’ 1968 masterpiece “Musica per un anno” on four channels. Some shots here.
