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.
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 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.
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.
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.
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).
