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”.
L'anima colta dell'ingegnere
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.

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.
Fabio Sibio kindly extracted for me an excerpt from his beautiful video dedicated to the Making together exhibition for Milan Design Week. I’m saying something about machina logotelica installation 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.
