23-24/05/13 Le forme del suono

trilobite

trilobite

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.

Padua: on Poème électronique

L'anima colta dell'ingegnere

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”.

Scripta volant

Scripta volant: a sketch

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.

Imaginary Landscape no. 4

Imaginary Landscape no. 4

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.

A video of Dispacci, 01/12/2012

Dispacci dal fronte interno

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
