I’m very happy that my short album “Annuario telefonico” is out for Studiolo Laps. It features a live realisation of the Annuario telefonico score for improvisers, played by me, Michele Anelli and Carlo Barbagallo at the Noise Delivery Marathon in Torino. Lucia D’Errico kindly offered the wonderful cover. Check the album’s page for the score.
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.
Thanks to Tempo Reale, I had the opportunity with Mauro Lanza to perform both Regnum animale and vegetabile in Firenze, at Limonaia di Villa Strozzi, for Maggio elettronico, on June 12th 2015, with our friend of Ensemble Mosaik. It was really an amazing context and project. Some pics here.
Regnum animale and vegetabile with Mosaik
On May 31st we played Regnum vegetabile with friends of Mosaik in Hamburg for the NDR concert series Diskrete Machinen. Wonderful concert and incredible space, Resonant Raum at Flak Turm. Happy to have this work so often performed, after Darmstadt, Berlin (2), Zurich, Bludenz. Some pics from Bludenz (22/11/14) are here.
I’ve been invited by Ictus Ensemble with my partner in crime Mauro Lanza to play Regnum animale at the Opera Theatre in Lille for the Les Zébrides project. Impressive location and big fun.
I’m in charge of music production for Marcel·lí Antúnez Roca’s new multimedia performance, Ultraorbism, a collaboration between Barcelona and Falmouth. And so, having fun in creating all sorts of bizarre objects to be played live.
I’ve been invited by Annalisa Pascai Saiu and Michele Anelli to play at Border, TO, for their Noise Delivery series. So, I tested this sort of Sho organ made up of 12 flutes. Worked fine! Here some shots by Isabella Indiesigh and a video excerpt.
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.
