Composed by Mauro Lanza and me, wonderfully played by mdi ensemble, brilliantly recorded and mixed by Paolo Brandi, published by Stradivarius, with an amazing cover from a work by Marcel·lí Antúnez Roca. We are all very happy of the Systema naturae CD. Some reviews are already coming.
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!
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.
We have recorded the entire cycle of Systema naturae, by me and Mauro Lanza. Recording took place as StudiumLab, University of Torino, with the help of the School of Electronic Music, Conservatory of Torino. Rec by Paolo Brandi and Giorgio Casati. Stradivarius will issue a CD for the end of the year by mdi ensemble.
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.
I’ve been invited to participate in Theatrum Botanicum by Almare at PAV, Parco Arte Vivente, Torino. In the occasion, Almare presented a booklet dedicate to Systema naturae and, in the occasion, I rebuild my good ole Rumetarium setup. Pics 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.
I’ve been invited to discuss algorithmic composition and automatic notation at the Conservatorio D. Cimarosa in Avellino. It’s been a very nice occasion to introduce some experiences I developed since 2005.
