Our spatialization of Xenakis’ Concret PH and Varèse’s Poème électronique, as reconstructed by the VEP Project, will be played on an 8-chan ring for the “Random Walks: Music of Xenakis and beyond” event, organised by The Fields Institute, together with the Perimeter Institute and the Institute for Quantum Computing in Waterloo, Canada.
Humbly proud to be there with my work on two so relevant music pieces.
I will be at “Le forme del suono” festival in Latina on 23-24 holding a SuperCollider crash course. I will also present the “Trilobiti” installation:
A population of 8 radioclocks, each one listening to the surrounding environment. When a sound is detected, each radioclock starts emitting a pattern deriving from the letters composing the word “telegraph”, translated into Morse code. Both listening and emitting happen through radioclock’s loudpspeakers.
To be premiered on May 24th, the day when Morse sent the sentence “What hath God wrought”.
A feedback system, you know when trilobites start singing, but not when they stop.
On 24 I’ll be with Simone Pappalardo and Franz Rosati for a gig at Circolo Hemingway, Latina.
On a Cage concert at Conservatorio di Torino (“Changes of Music”) we will premier an automated version of Imaginary Landscape no. 4. Originally scored for 12 radios and 24 performers, as a collaboration between CIRMA and Politecnico di Torino we have implemented a SuperCollider/Arduino version that automatises it. See here for the whole stuff. Proud of the project and of the crew.

Marcel·lì Antúnez Roca has put on line a lot of video materials concerning Pseudo. Be sure to look here and here. Featured music can be heard here.
I’ll be in Milan on Dec 1/2012 with friend from U.S.O. Project for the 2012 edition of their Sonic Screens. I’ll present Dispacci dal fronte interno, a new piece for violin and cello with printers dispatching notation sheets in real-time in the framework of a feedback system. (who knows what will happen…). The performers will be the Èdua Amarilla Zádory - Violin and Ana Topalovic – Violoncello.
I’ll be in Trieste from 22 to 23/11/2012 for the XIX CIM – Colloquio di Informatica Musicale organized by AIMI. I’ll present a poster dedicated to the software development for Pseudo. Here the proceedings
I will be at ICMC12 in Ljubljana on 11-12 sept 12. I will present with Dario Sanfilippo the paper “Towards a typology of feedback systems”. The paper has received the Best Paper Award. Yai! Honored and proud. We will also present a paper + performance “Heterogenously-coupled feedback systems”, of course concerning the Bar Dot Project. We will present the Dark Store setting.

I’m proudly presenting Marcel·lí Antúnez Roca‘s new work Pseudo, to be premiered on Thu 24 July at Mercat de les Flors for the Grec Festival, in Barcelona. An impressive mechatronic peformance featuring a polar bear, a mechanical head, a miniprojector helmet, loudspeaker tits, 3 screens, a guncam, four channel audio, of course interactive and in real time, (not to speak of pressure carpets and the usual exoskeleton). I made some 20 pieces, interactive, working in real time, on four channels, and developed the software structure for interconnecting the music application to the other (many) software components used in the performance. Of course, entirely developed in SuperCollider.
I’ve been asked by Stefano Maffei and Susanna Legrenzi to participate to the Making Together event, powered by Logotel for the Milano Design Week on April 17-22.
I will present the new “Machina logotelica”, an installation resulting from an assemblage of scavenged stuff (rumentarium style, ça va sans dire…), motors, hair driers, radioclocks. Custom hardware based on audio control will be used (thanks Guru Francesco Richiardi!)
Working on the Machina logotelica
On March 27/28, together with Stefano Bassanese, we organized a two-day seminar dedicated to Italian pioneer of electronic music Enore Zaffiri. In the occasion, we discussed his opus and dedicated him a concert with electronic and instrumental music. I played my reconstructed version of Zaffiri’ 1968 masterpiece “Musica per un anno” on four channels. Some shots here.
