Systema naturae is out, Spring 2020

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.

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.

Music for Il jockey della morte 7/7/2018

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.

Live at StudiumLab, 07102017

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).
Impressive 360 video by Stefano Sburlati (do not open with Safari) here.
