Imprudences Festival, Paris 10/06/16

We’ve been invited with Simone Pappalardo to participate at the Imprudence festival in Paris, St Merri church, on June 10th 2016. Our Otosimbionte project focuses on feedback systems, so each of us brought his latest fashion bricabrac. Feedback pedals with relais and loudspeaker percussion for me, electromagnetic feedback operated percussion for Simone. Some pics here.

Officine sintetiche 2015

In Dec 2015 we did a new edition of the Officine sintetiche project (founded by Fondazione CRT, a collaboration between StudiUm department, CIRMA UniTo, PoliTo and ConsTo, SMET). We did two workshops respectively by Mark Coniglio (Isadora) and Simone Pappalardo (DIY feedback music instruments), and finished with a performance at Superbudda. Thanks Finder for technical sponsorship. Here some pics I collected and the video of the performance I did with Simone Pappalardo (here).

Zaffiri’s Musica per un anno in Lugano

I will present my digital reconstruction of Enore Zaffiri’s Musica per un anno in Lugano, at the Conservatorio della Svizzera Italiana, for Oggi musica, on Friday 11th October 2013. Happy to be able to propose again this relevant electronic work, between music and sound installation.

Trilobiti and live in Latina

I’ve finally put on line a video from the Trilobiti installation in Latina, for the festival “Le forme del suono” on may 24th. Shortly, trilobites is a population of radioclocks capable of sensing the acoustic environment and reacting to it. Here it is. Here a video from the amazing live gig with Simone Pappalardo and Franz Rosati at Circolo Hemingway in Latin the same evening. I’m using a live setup with radioclocks.

I will be at “Le forme del suono” festival in Latina on 23-24 holding a SuperCollider crash course. I will also present the “Trilobiti” installation:

A population of 8 radioclocks, each one listening to the surrounding environment. When a sound is detected, each radioclock starts emitting a pattern deriving from the letters composing the word “telegraph”, translated into Morse code. Both listening and emitting happen through radioclock’s loudpspeakers.
To be premiered on May 24th, the day when Morse sent the sentence “What hath God wrought”.
A feedback system, you know when trilobites start singing, but not when they stop.

On 24 I’ll be with Simone Pappalardo and Franz Rosati for a gig at Circolo Hemingway, Latina.

Hommage to Enore Zaffiri

On March 27/28, together with Stefano Bassanese, we organized a two-day seminar dedicated to Italian pioneer of electronic music Enore Zaffiri. In the occasion, we discussed his opus and dedicated him a concert with electronic and instrumental music. I played my reconstructed version of Zaffiri’ 1968 masterpiece “Musica per un anno” on four channels. Some shots here.
