Minute di cronometria, Live

We opened our new lab at the Department of Humanities (StudiUm) with a concert dedicated to improvisation, called Macchine all’impronta. Great friends musicians participated and we did two of my pieces, Annuario telefonico (with Federico Marchesano, Stefano Risso, Luca Morino and Francesco Bianchi) and Minute di cronometria (with Carlo Barbagallo, Dario Bruna, Amos Cappuccio playing my electromechanical percussion setup, special guest Simone Pappalardo and Jean-François Laporte).
Impressive 360 video by Stefano Sburlati (do not open with Safari) here.

Systema naturae at Naturkunde museum

With Mauro Lanza we had the pleasure to play our whole cycle System naturae, including the three Regna plus the premiere of the final episode, Fossilia, at the Museum of Natural Sciences in Berlin on June 19 with the amazing ensemble mosaik. A huge but rewarding amount of work,  surrounded by dinosaurs.

Imprudences Festival, Paris 10/06/16

Live at Imprudences
We’ve been invited with Simone Pappalardo to participate at the Imprudence festival in Paris, St Merri church, on June 10th 2016. Our Otosimbionte project focuses on feedback systems, so each of us brought his latest fashion bricabrac. Feedback pedals with relais and loudspeaker percussion for me, electromagnetic feedback operated percussion for Simone. Some pics here.
