SoDA at SMC|ICMC 14

SoDA

We will present a talk at SMC|ICMC joint conference about our project SoDA – Sound Design Accelerator, that is aimed at the automatic generation of soundscape from an annotated sound library as an aid to sound designer. The project is funded by Regione Piemonte on its Multimedia innovation programme. SoDA is lead by me at CIRMA, and includes Machiavelli, Celi, ZerodBMarinos Koutsomichalis will present the talk. Special thanks also to my partner Paolo Armao.

24/05/13 Randomw Walks: Xenakis and Varèse

Random Walks

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.

Semiotics of programming at AISS meeting 2012

Semiotic relations in programming languages

On 29/09/12 I have presented with Alessandro Mazzei a paper at the XL Meeting of the Italian Semiotics Association, this year in Turin. We’ve sketched some preliminary notes on semiotic issues of programming languages. While studying it, we got hooked, so now we have a new research topic..

Hommage to Enore Zaffiri

Musica per un anno, SuperCollider sw interface

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.
