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).

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.
