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.
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.

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.
