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.

Vedute della Luna scritte in braille

Vedute della Luna scritte in braille

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.
