With my supergroup Arto fantasma we have been invited on 14/06/2022 to play live the music for Il jockey della morte as the opening event of the 150 jubilee of the impressive Teatro Dal Verme in Milan.
Thanks to Tempo Reale, on 04/05/2022 I had the chance of doing live coding (first time ever in a proper sense…) in the homage they paid to the great Pietro Grossi. So I played my SuperCollisione PiGra, of course with SuperCollider. Here it is on YouTube.
Thanks to Marco Masoero, I’ve been invited for the Teknologhia cycle of events, inside Polincontri, Politecnico di Torino. In the occasione Carlo Barbagallo and Elaine Bonsangue have shot and edited a wonderful documentary on some of my works, here on YouTube. We discussed it live on 22/04/2022 at Politecnico di Torino.
We wanted to wait the end of the trilogy, bu these are hard times…So, here we are with two albums under the Arto fantasma name, out on my bandcamp. All live in studio.
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).
