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).

After some years, I’m back at the Sound and Music Computing Conference, 14th ed, 2017, in Espoo. Presenting two papers, both available on line in the proceedings: Systema Naturae: shared practices between physical computing and algorithmic composition, with Mauro Lanza, and Electric Grammars. Algorithmic Design and Construction of Experimental Music Circuits, with Simone Pappalardo
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.
I’m very happy to have my computational implementation of Enore Zaffiri’s Musica per un anno out for Mazagran label. With a two essays by me and Vincenzo Santarcangelo. Special thanks to Riccardo Wanke.
As the final event of my DAAD guest professorship, we will present with the students an exhibition of multimedia installations at the Passagen Köln, between 17 and 22 jan 17. On Sat 21 I will play at St Michael church live impro with Simone Pappalardo. I’ll bring 12 hacked radios.
