I’ve been asked to compose the music for Marcel•lì Antuñez Roca’s new work, “Cotrone“, inspired by Pirandello’s I Giganti della Montagna. It will be premiered on Nov 14 2010 in Turin, at the Cavalerizza Reale. Then, on Dec 12th it will be performed in Girona, Spain. Working like a dog, but it’s an exciting experience.
Paolo Armao was already in the project, so we decided to integrate music and sound design as strictly as possible.
Some shots in progress here.
On Oct 28th 2010 I should be ubiquitous as I will present also a communication dedicated to audible domain in the Universal horror talkies at the Sound and Image conference in Turin, this year dedicated to “sound and genre“. Luckily, the first author is Luca Canova, and he will present our work.
On oct 28th I will present a poster at ACM MM Conf 2010 in Florence. Too bad I will have no time to stay there more.
The poster deals with the Rumentarium (“The Rumentarium Project”).
I’ve been totally busy organizing the XVIII CIM, the Colloquium of Musical Informatics. So busy that I was not able to updated the blog…
On Oct 5-8 we set up 3 days of conferences, 6 concerts, 2 workshops. More details here.
Here some shots: graphic stuff and events
Here we are! Hopeful Monster, the new album by AMP2 is out, inside the 10 CD box set Musica Improvvisa by Die Schachtel. Here the booklet’s text:
“The biologist Richard Goldschmidt introduced the term “hopeful monster” to indicate an individual of a species showing a relevant mutation in its genes. This mutation makes the individual a “monster”, as it differs from all the other individuals of his species. But, at the same time, it is “hopeful”, as it can lead to a radical discontinuity in the otherwise continuous evolution of the species. Our “Hopeful Monster” presents five excerpts from two long, radically improvised, sessions, where no previous structures of any kind were planned. Indeed, improvisation often tends to be shaped as a sort of continuous, slowly evolving flow. But, from time to time, a mutation happens, leading to unprevisible results. The tracks on the album present five of these hopeful monsters”
In “Hopeful Monster”, AMP2 is:
Gandolfo Pagano: Prepared Guitar, Electronics
Dario Sanfilippo: Laptop/Live Electronics – Feedback Network Based Nonlinear DSP System
Domenico Sciajno: Laptop/Live Electronics – Max/MSP Programming
Antonino Secchia: Percussion Set
Andrea Valle: Rumentarium, a SuperCollider-Driven Electro-mechanical Percussion Set
Some photos from the live in Roma, Riunione di Condominio, and Barcelona, SMC (see previous posts).
I’ve been invited by SMC to hold a Tutorial on SuperCollider. I’ll be in Barcelona on 21st-24th July.
Many things to do at the conference, btw: Detti del tuono will be performed with flute and four tracks, with live spatialization, and I’ll present a work we did on the recostruction of Xenakis’ spatialization in the Philips Pavilion.
I’ve been invited by Nephogram.net to hold a SuperCollider Crash Course in Roma. On the evening we will have some fun with Franz Rosati playing the Rumentarium and processing it.
