Periplo at SMC22

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.

SuperCollider browsable source space for algorithmic composition.

Orchestre residuali: a documentary

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.

Einstein’s Sonata at Festival della Scienza, Genova

Einstein's Sonata
At the end we managed to present the Einstein’s Sonata project at Festival della Scienza, Genova, 29/10/2021.
Einstein’s Sonata is a project aimed at artistically displaying data from the Milky Way generated by physicist Valeriya Korol fro the LISA mission. It featurs my piece for prepared piano “Periplo del Latte” played by Luca Ieracitano. Artistic direction by Samantha Stella. Here some pics from our presentation.

Organum pineale, July2019-January2020

We’ve been asked by the National Museum of Cinema to create a sound installation in the occasion of the exhibition #FacceEmozioni. So, together with Stefano Bassanese we thought about a sort of organ to listen to passions as described in the history of cinema, Organum pineale. Final design and realization by Guglielmo Diana, Luca Martone and Matteo Marson.

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!
