Systema naturae at Fabbrica del vapore

mdi ensemble wonderfully played the whole Systema naturae cycle that I co-composed with Mauro Lanza at Fabbrica del vapore, Milano, 11/10/18, a production by RepertorioZero.  Incredible sold out! We also had the chance to discuss with Marco Ferraguti (Italian translator of my cult author S.J. Gould). Pics here. A very interesting review by Renato Rivolta is here.

Music for Il jockey della morte 7/7/2018

Playing at Mole antonelliana

With an incredible quartet made up of Federico Marchesano and Stefano Risso (double basses), Dario Bruna (drums) and Enrico Degani (guitars), plus Carlo Barbagallo as a producer, we sonorized at Mole Antonelliana in Torino, as a collaboration with Museo Nazionale del Cinema, Il jockey della morte, a silent film from 1915. Lots of fun composing the music and playing in such a location. Pics here.

On Jan 25th Marcelli Antúnez Roca will open his new multimedia installation -Eskizos- at Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Madrid.
I’m proud of having composed the music, and a bit sad not to be there.
