So at the end we did it. With Mauro Lanza, after a complex production journey, we finished the third piece of our cycle Systema naturae, Regnum lapideum. A commission by ensemble 2e2m as a result of our residence of this year, they premiered it under the direction of Pierre Roller at the CCR in Paris, on April 29th. Here some shots.

As a part of the project that Ensemble 2e2m has dedicated to the work we did with Mauro Lanza, on Jan 19 2e2m has played Regnum vegetabile at the CRR in Paris. And they presented the book that they dedicated to the cycle, Systema nature.
In Dec 2015 we did a new edition of the Officine sintetiche project (founded by Fondazione CRT, a collaboration between StudiUm department, CIRMA UniTo, PoliTo and ConsTo, SMET). We did two workshops respectively by Mark Coniglio (Isadora) and Simone Pappalardo (DIY feedback music instruments), and finished with a performance at Superbudda. Thanks Finder for technical sponsorship. Here some pics I collected and the video of the performance I did with Simone Pappalardo (here).

Marcel·lí Antúnez Roca‘s new interactive installation, Alsaxy, has been presented at Shadok centre for digital arts, Strasburg, on 22/10/2015 and will be open until january. I made all the music and sound design. Huge work but wonderful result.
I’ll be in Rome for the Maker Faire. The workshop -“Residual orchestras”- is organised by RepertorioZero and will terminate with a short performance.
We’ve been invited to play Regnum vegetabile with the Ensemble PlusMinus at Cafe Oto, London, for the Cut & Splice festival, directed by Joanna Bailie. Wonderful performance and alive situation, and cool place.
