It’s been a long time since we rock’n’roll… After a long hiatus, together with Mauro Lanza we’ve discussed and performed Regnum animale at ZHDK, Zurich. Wonderful situation and performance. Some pics here.
We played live the music I wrote for impressive film Maciste (1915) , thanks to the support of Museo Nazionale del Cinema di Torino. Here on the official Vimeo channel of the Museo, you can find the whole film with music (and credits). Here some pics of the rehearsal/live playing. Recording on its way!
I’ve been playing at Superbudda as a guest with the wonderful Millis() project by friends Simone Pappalardo and José Angelino. New setup with two zithers and electromechanical bottles.
Together with Mauro Lanza we’ve been invited to play Regnum lapideum for the IRCAM season hosted at Centre Pompidou, played by Ensemble 2e2m. Some info here. Pics courtesy of Herve Provini here.
mdi ensemble wonderfully played the whole Systema naturae cycle that I co-composed with Mauro Lanza at Fabbrica del vapore, Milano, 11/10/18, a production by RepertorioZero. Incredible sold out! We also had the chance to discuss with Marco Ferraguti (Italian translator of my cult author S.J. Gould). Pics here. A very interesting review by Renato Rivolta is here.
With an incredible quartet made up of Federico Marchesano and Stefano Risso (double basses), Dario Bruna (drums) and Enrico Degani (guitars), plus Carlo Barbagallo as a producer, we sonorized at Mole Antonelliana in Torino, as a collaboration with Museo Nazionale del Cinema, Il jockey della morte, a silent film from 1915. Lots of fun composing the music and playing in such a location. Pics here.
With Mauro Lanza and Simone Pappalardo we had an incredible week in Chaux-de-Fond (CH) for the Les Amplitudes festival. With Mauro we performed the whole Systema naturae cycle and then with Simone we played an improvisation setting under the Otosimbionte moniker. Some pics are here
We performed Systema Naturae (the whole cycle of 4 pieces I co-wrote with Mauro Lanza) at Schaumbad, Graz, with wonderful Schallfeld Ensemble. In the occasion, we gave a couple of lecture at Uni and at IEM.
We opened our new lab at the Department of Humanities (StudiUm) with a concert dedicated to improvisation, called Macchine all’impronta. Great friends musicians participated and we did two of my pieces, Annuario telefonico (with Federico Marchesano, Stefano Risso, Luca Morino and Francesco Bianchi) and Minute di cronometria (with Carlo Barbagallo, Dario Bruna, Amos Cappuccio playing my electromechanical percussion setup, special guest Simone Pappalardo and Jean-François Laporte).
Impressive 360 video by Stefano Sburlati (do not open with Safari) here.
With Mauro Lanza we had the pleasure to play our whole cycle System naturae, including the three Regna plus the premiere of the final episode, Fossilia, at the Museum of Natural Sciences in Berlin on June 19 with the amazing ensemble mosaik. A huge but rewarding amount of work, surrounded by dinosaurs. Pics collected here.
