HERE AND THROUGH | AV Installation
with Luca Truffarelli

Here and through” is a mixed-media installation and short video.
The project invites you to experience the present as a personal journey representing the endless voyage of a soul through past, present and future.
The short video, shot in 8mm, is projected on a steel sheet which will be acoustically stimulated via a digital algorithm producing sine waves and creating physical and psychological resonance.

JICAMO 2.0 | Composition
for 4 congas and live electronics

It combines two very different languages; that of the ancient afro-cuban percussion tradition and that of the electronic sound. The aim is to create a rythmic and musical connection between our primordial trembling of our skin and it’s digital processing. From the top-down, from heaven to earth, the sound of the tumbadora takes you to a terrestrial reality, more than any other percussion, it’s digital elaboration will accompany you into a space-time path which goes beyond the concrete reality of sound.

FOETUS | A/V Performance

New media live art through the wonder of pregnancy
Foetus, is an un-seen and highly innovative concept of new media live art where humanity and technologies are interlaced through the wonder of pregnancy.
The concept is to explore how a woman maneuvers physically and psychologically through the progression of pregnancy, drawing on the journey from acceptence through to submergence. The personal experience of the prengrant performer is translated in movement an body expression obtaining an always-unique live performance piece. The AV performance sees the acquisition of two indipendent signals: ECG electrocardiogram and Fetal ultrasound doppler. The sound is elaborated in real time creating a sound weaving made both concrete e synthetic noises produced by the information coming from the ECG. The video installation show the analysis of data coming from the OMAX.


FILM | Composition

POOP | Composition
for Sousaphone and live electronics

Decontextualise, expropriate, isolated from its environment reference an instrument created only for playing in the marching band. Born in 1890 up to todayin 1890 it has quickly become the “big” of the brass family, indispensable for the diffusion of the “low frequency in the movement.” In “PooP” the Sousaphone is thus removed from his role, going from the last row to the first, the function of accompaniment to the solo role and others, immerses in the new soundscape, free from structures with an unusual traveling companion, the electronic sound.

LUMINA Audiovisione | A/V Composition
for Pipe Organ – video and live electronics

Do not hear the same thing when you see, you do not see the same thing when you hear it.

MA#theater | Theatre Project

“One morning we hiked along a path through the woods. We got to the top of a hill, took in the dawn and the mist. And we breathed”.
MA#theater is focused on the origin of movement and empty space, done with language that is spare and abstract.
The layout and the lines that describe its geometry and volume, come into contact with theatrical machinery and the choreography of a female figure.
Set design and dancing interact, energizing the movement of hanging sculptures, producing a continuous energy flow across animate and inanimate subjects.
Choreography, shared musical scores and light dynamics spin off unexpected, real-time events.
The overall objective is achieving a walk-through of suspended time and rarefied matter.
MA#theater is yet a gentle place of waiting, quiet and burgeoning light.

MA#museum | Theatre Project

The Japanese ideogram denoted by the word MA is a special type of aesthetical sensitivity, portrayed as empty space, silence or the motionlessness of objects.
MA#museum keys on the separateness of bodies as that which validates space for dialogue, and it muses on the changes
Technology and handy work figure into the stagecraft, generating a delicate, intimate type of space, being in which satisfies the essential condition for listening.
Dance interacts with an array of mobile sculptures, virtual and wire-figure, and with projected sound and light.
Sound is picked up directly from the movement of objects and sent back as a live electronic stream.
The choreography develops inside and outside of two cube-like structures, one full and the other empty.
The dance pets and draws in the public. Within a safe-zone delimited by the performance, time is suspended.

M. For Tymp | Composition
for classic tympani and live electronics

The piece “M. for Tymp” was composed with three classical timpani and electronic elaboration staff. The whole composition is based on the relationship between space and time: the sound of the timpani is the primary vibration; this vibration is moving trough the space and in the flow of time it explores different motional states. The pure sound of the drum gives a deep dimension to the space. The relationship between the sample of the percussion and computer processing generates different soundscapes destroying at the same time the rigidity of the rhythmic pulse to create a smooth imperfections.
