On Oct 24 we had great time in Paris with Soundinitiative collective playing Regnum animale in St Merri church, coorganised by La muse en circuit. Some pics here, a couple of videos by Soundinitiative here and here.
Researcher/Musician @ CIRMA/StudiUm Department – University of Turin
On 20-22 October 2014, I’ll be in Rome for the XX CIM – Colloquio di Informatica Musicale, organised by AIMI. I’ll present three papers:
And we’ll also present the new book I co-edited with Stefano Bassanese: “Enore Zaffiri. Saggi e materiali”.
We will present a talk at SMC|ICMC joint conference about our project SoDA – Sound Design Accelerator, that is aimed at the automatic generation of soundscape from an annotated sound library as an aid to sound designer. The project is funded by Regione Piemonte on its Multimedia innovation programme. SoDA is lead by me at CIRMA, and includes Machiavelli, Celi, ZerodB. Marinos Koutsomichalis will present the talk. Special thanks also to my partner Paolo Armao.
My new project with Mauro Lanza, “Regnum vegetabile”, for sextet and electro-mechanical objects, has been performed in Darmstadt, at Ferienkurse, and in Berlin, at Berghain. Commissioned and wonderfully played by Ensemble Mosaik. Looking forward to playing new concerts.
Some shots here, and a live recording 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.
With Simone Pappalardo we designed and create the Otosimbionte installation, a feedback system with some computational elements, mostly based on DYI analog electronics. Otosimbionte keeps changing and singing while going.

I’m very happy to see my new (old) album “Vedute della Luna scritte in braille” (rec in 2009) out for Nephogram editions. Inspired by Galileo’s Sidereus nuncius, it’s computer music without any digital sound in it, as it features only a rumentarium setup. Special thanks due to Franz Rosati, Paolo Armao, Francesco “Guru” Richiardi, Hairi Vogel.
The new Organised Sound issue dedicated to “Re-wiring electronic music” contains my article “Making Acoustic Computer Music: The Rumentarium project” that sums up four years of research with the Rumentarium setup. To be precise: Andrea Valle (2013). Making Acoustic Computer Music: The Rumentarium project. Organised Sound, 18, pp 242-254. doi:10.1017/S1355771813000216.
