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.

Systema naturae, Fabbrica del vapore 11/10/18

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.
