I’ve been in Udine for the XXII Colloquium on Musical Informatics (CIM), the meeting of AIMI, the Italian association for computer music. I gave a workshop on algorithmic composition, presented a paper and gave a tutorial lecture on SuperCollider. Now waiting for proceedings.
I’m very proud of having my introductory book on SuperCollider translated into English and published by Logos Verlag, Berlin. Here the publisher’s web page. Thanks to Marinos Koutsomichalis, Joe Higham, Josh Parmenter.
My new album featuring music written for Marcelli Antúnez Roca’s interactive performance Ultraorbism is out for Studiolo Laps. It features tracks that have been composed by recording physical setups controlled live via computer. Check it here.
As SMET (School of Electronic Music of Conservatorio of Torino) and CIRMA/DAMS we organised a concert for disklavier and various setups. I participated with Orologio da rote (2014) for disklavier and 3 radios, a piece-installation dedicated to the notion of clocks and hours signals. Here some pics.
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.
