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.
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.
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 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.
I’m very happy that my short album “Annuario telefonico” is out for Studiolo Laps. It features a live realisation of the Annuario telefonico score for improvisers, played by me, Michele Anelli and Carlo Barbagallo at the Noise Delivery Marathon in Torino. Lucia D’Errico kindly offered the wonderful cover. Check the album’s page for the score.
I’m in charge of music production for Marcel·lí Antúnez Roca’s new multimedia performance, Ultraorbism, a collaboration between Barcelona and Falmouth. And so, having fun in creating all sorts of bizarre objects to be played live.
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.
