On June 12th I was with friend Dario Sanfilippo playing impro at BlahBlah in Turin. We performed as the |. (bar dot) project. Here some shots and here a video. Then we recorded for a couple of days (a video here). Big fun and maybe a new project.
Researcher/Musician @ CIRMA/StudiUm Department – University of Turin
On April 19th, 2013 I’ve been invited in Padua by the local Association of Engineers to speak about Poème électronique, and Xenakis’ role and aesthetics. It was a nice day, with a very interested audience. The meeting was inserted into a series named “The cultivated soul of the engineer”.
I’ve been invited for the second year by Stefano Maffei and Susanna Legrenzi to participate to the exhibit they curate for the Design Week of Milan at Logotel, called Invisible design. So, I’ve proposed Scripta volant, a small sound install that associates the act of writing to feather jumping through sound. A test video is here.
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.
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:
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.
