“Diversità e molteplicità fantastica del suono, nello stesso istante, possibile” (Luigi Nono)

Il concerto del 7 ottobre vede la presenza di composizioni per due strumenti aerofoni, differenti tra loro nella forma, nella costruzione e nella modalità di esecuzione: l’organo e il sassofono. La rivisitazione delle modalità di esecuzione degli strumenti tradizionali diviene fattore fondamentale per ottenere nuovi effetti acustici e l’elettronica offre il suo contributo per indirizzare il suono verso nuovi spazi. Accanto a brani di recente creazione, sarà possibile ascoltare Volumina di Gyorgy Ligeti (divenuto ormai un classico della musica contemporanea) e un brano acusmatico per quadrifonia. <!– Un concerto che narra le modulazioni dell’aria attraverso forme diverse d’insufflazione. I toni, i ritmi e i timbri che si diffondono dalle canne d’organo e del sax, incontrano, dialogano e interagiscono con l’elettronica e la multi percussione fino a diventare un’unica massa cangiante, intima o dirompente, animata o pacata, sempre espressiva.

A concert that narrates the modulations of the air through different forms of insufflation. Tones, rhythms and timbres that spread from the organ pipes and the sax, meet, talk and interact with electronics and multi percussions to become a changing, disruptive or intimate, lively or calm, always expressive unique mass. –>

Program Notes

KOMA - Kontrolled Organic Movement Act Our entire life is made by acts. Life is articulated day by day through repetition. Millions of automatisms assure us a cognitive and energetic saving. So life seems to be an automated system that is difficult to avoid or control, without a real consciousness of our actions. Maybe we should see our actions as a ritual gesture, instead of a simple repetition of the same act. Sometimes we should give time, meaning and attention to our acts to really control them. The performance includes tape, live piano, voices, live electronics and sound controlling by body movement through Kinect and Leap Motion system.

Kronos in Fabula I The acousmatic piece “Kronos in Fabula 1” is part of a series of compositions dedicated to the speculation about time. The material’s acoustic density represents the time trend; the possibilities of the listening points’ collocation on the time axis are connected to a feasible fruition “directionality” linked to the sequence and reiteration of sounds events.

On-y rêve The work is a nocturnal representation for piano and tape, suffused with suspended atmospheres and textures typical of oneiric visions. The piano part is mostly rhapsodic, while the acousmatic elements enhance and filter the resonances produced through the tonal pedal, conveying granulated processes of prepared piano. A contrast between darkness and light alludes to a chiaroscuro counterpoint, where each tile is devised manipulating and recomposing elements derived from Alexander Scriabin’s Poème-Nocturne op. 61, in a tribute to commemorate the centenary celebration of his passing.

17 Haiku Heirs of haikai, comic-themed and outgoing figuralisms in Japanese poetry, haiku was taking its own identity in the complex art of expression of consciousness. In them, senses are suggested, not the meanings. Haiku does not mean, because it says nothing. Indeed, haiku does not have an informative function. But, perhaps, to the expressive function, a suggestive function should be added.

L’abile Medico The piece is a prayer. Trying to go further, beyond the suffering it is a difficult task; and sometimes it causes reconsideration, but eventually the courage leads to victory. Il Sutra del Loto is one of the most important texts of the literature of Mahayana Buddhism. In the first section the breath, the primary form of meditation predisposes to concentration becoming a prayer, the supplication of the Mystic Law. Later, through meditation we realize the complexity of existence: an illusory chaos. Finally the resolute soul emerges, confirming definitively the depth of his Essence. To increase the listening ability and participation we recommend to close the eyes.
