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.
As CIRMA I’m co-organising with SMET (School of Electronic Music, Turin) a workshop with Nic Collins, with final concert. Hail hardware hacking! Some pics are collected here
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.

Gianmarco Del Re has include a couple of tracks from Acta GeoGraphica in his mix tape for A Closer Listen.
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.
Nathan Thomas from Fluid -Radio kindly cites my work in his “Ten conversations about a thing“, happy and proud to be there.
TEN CONVERSATIONS ABOUT ONE THING
Dispacci dal fronte interno [Dispatches from the homefront] is a work for feedback system including ad libitum strings, printer and live electronics, that I presented at Sonic Screens, on 01/12/2012.
Audio from strings, printers and environment is not only manipulated live, but some features are extracted and used to control not only the same sound processing but also the real-time generation and print on the fly of musical notation to be performed by the player. In short, the performer receives “dispatches” which content depends on what s/he is playing.
Here a video by Gianmarco Del Re (thanks!), featuring:
Èdua Amarilla Zádory - Violin
Ana Topalovic – Violoncello
Dispacci dal fronte interno
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.
Gianmarco Del Re interviewed me for his very interesting Postcards from Italy series on Fluid Radio. I sent a postcard from Ciriè!
