Otosimbionte, Tivoli/Roma 22-23/03/2014

With Simone Pappalardo we designed and create the Otosimbionte installation, a feedback system with some computational elements, mostly based on DYI analog electronics. Otosimbionte keeps changing and singing while going.

Trilobiti and live in Latina

Trilobiti

I’ve finally put on line a video from the Trilobiti installation in Latina, for the festival “Le forme del suono” on may 24th. Shortly, trilobites is a population of radioclocks capable of sensing the acoustic environment and reacting to it. Here it is. Here a video from the amazing live gig with Simone Pappalardo and Franz Rosati at Circolo Hemingway in Latin the same evening. I’m using a live setup with radioclocks.

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.

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.

Making together

Working on the Machina logotelica

I’ve been asked by Stefano Maffei and Susanna Legrenzi to participate to the Making Together event, powered by Logotel for the Milano Design Week on April 17-22.

I will present the new “Machina logotelica”, an installation resulting from an assemblage of scavenged stuff (rumentarium style, ça va sans dire…), motors, hair driers, radioclocks. Custom hardware based on audio control will be used (thanks Guru Francesco Richiardi!)
