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.

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.

Trilobiti and live in Latina

Trilobiti

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.

On Nanni Balestrini’s Tape Mark I, 10/06/13

Tape Mark I, a possible sequence

In the occasion of seminars at CIRMA, with Alessandro Mazzei, my partner in crime for this kind of stuff, we analysed Nanni Balestrini’s Tape Mark I, probably the first poem created using a computer. We reconstructed the original implementation and proposed a new formalisation. And of course generated a lot of new versions.

Live writing with radioclocks at TPA

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.
