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.
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.
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 been invited by Annalisa Pascai Saiu and Michele Anelli to play at Border, TO, for their Noise Delivery series. So, I tested this sort of Sho organ made up of 12 flutes. Worked fine! Here some shots by Isabella Indiesigh and a video excerpt.
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’ve been invited to participate to TPA, Torino Performance Art festival. Which is not a music festival, so I was the only musicians: an interesting context. I’ve played live with the Trilobites project (radioclocks), writing.
We played with the Institute for the Very, Very Nervous (Gandolfo Pagano, prepared guitar, Nino Secchia, percussion, Dario Sanfilippo, laptop) at Goethe Institut in Palermo for the Curva Minore festival. Our special guest was Thomas Lehn. We started with Cage’s Sculptures Musicales and ended with a great impro gig.
On June 12th I was with friend Dario Sanfilippo playing impro at BlahBlah in Turin. We performed as the |. (bar dot) project. Here some shots and here a video. Then we recorded for a couple of days (a video here). Big fun and maybe a new project.
