Officine sintetiche 2015

Officine sintetiche 2015. Simone Pappalardo's workshop

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).
