Live & Sound Art Installation at Castromediano Museum with Pino Pascali’s work

By | a/v Installations, News

This evening I will play here, the most ancient museum in Puglia, Castromediano Museum in Lecce; this is a big opening after a renovation and restructuring period.
After the live performance, my sound art installation ‘Memore Muto’ will accompany the public enjoyment of Pino Pascali’s work, ‘Cinque Bachi da Setola e un Bozzolo’ , one of the most important works in contemporary art.

Questa suonerò nel più antico museo di Puglia, il museo Castromediano di Lecce che riapre i battenti dopo un periodo di ristrutturazione e rinnovamento degli spazi.

Dopo la performance dal vivo la mia installazione sonora ‘Memore Muto’ accompagnerà la fruizione dell’opera di Pino Pascali ‘Cinque Bachi da Setola e un Bozzolo’ , una delle più importanti nella storia dell’arte contemporanea.

Earthmood per Casa Futura Pietra

By | a/v Installations, News

Sabato 12 Novembre 2016 presenterò la mia nuova installazione sonora site-specific Earthmood – Sound of the Earth negli Ipogei Capparelli di Manfredonia, area tutelata dal Parco Nazionale del Gargano, per la seconda edizione di Casa Futura Pietra – progetto di arte contemporanea e promozione del territorio. L’evento è organizzato dall’Associazione Eclettica-Cultura dell’Arte col sostegno dell’Assessorato all’Industria Turistica e Culturale, Valorizzazione del Territorio della Regione Puglia e il Patrocinio del Polo Museale della Puglia, della Soprintendenza Archeologia, Belle Arti e Paesaggio per le Province BAT e FG, della Diocesi e del Comune di Manfredonia.

EarthMood | sound of the earth
Earthmood raccoglie Il paesaggio sonoro di una porzione del pianeta terra per incastonarlo all’interno degli Ipogei Capparelli nel parco del Gargano. I Segnali sonori dell’area in questione soggiacciono in quadrifonia sottoposti ad un continuo stravolgimento elettronico sino a giungere ad una vera e propria trasfigurazione che si tramuta però non in semplice magma sonoro indistinto ma in un crescendo di accenti sonori su significanti e le significazioni del luogo in questione.

Liquid Gender is a new exhibition project by Fabian Vogler, curated by Caterina Tomeo, that will open on the 28th of September 2016 at Espronceda – Center for Art and Culture in Barcelona.

In Liquid Gender Fabian Vogler explores the topics of intersexuality, gender and diversity, paying attention to the complexity of the issues involved, trying to overcome positions of normalization and, even more so, of censorship.

As Giovanna Zapperi wrote in her book Lo schermo del potere, „it is necessary to take an interest in the reality of discrimination and humiliation that women, migrants, lesbian, gay, trans genders [and intersexuals] experience every day, and the violence suffered by those marked as different people, the reality of the struggles and the strategies of resistance and opposition. This dimension is conflictual…and touches in general all situations where the imaginary acts in a particularly oppressive way on the identity and on subjective situations.”

The interplay between arts and gender has been characteristic of the research of various authors of a defined historical period – naturally the Seventies Movement – but in subsequent decades and recent years, deliberations about gender and difference were led by the assumption that it is primarily ancient and mythological phenomena which govern in a special way the dichotomy between man and woman.

Vogler investigates these issues creating polymorph and poly-expressive pieces which are generated from the idea of change and transformation into another thing, something that’s different from ourselves. His obsession with the imperfection of the form and with the semantics of materials, generates hybrid figures that live in bizarre landscapes, chosen by the artist, more often than not with some subtle irony, during his frequent international travels.

The link between gender and visuality can find an important point of elaboration in the use of technology – that plays a central role in this project – in the way the artist involves the technological dispositive for the depiction of sexual diversities. Furthermore it is interesting to notice how diversity for Vogler is the sign of an ‘otherness’ which opens alternative ways of being in the world, of living, of behaving, of acting as an artist. In his art “fragmentation, deformation and damages are not only vital for the shape, they are essential with regard to contents, i.e. the disruption. The lack of perfection, the disruption stands for incurable human imperfection”.

During the exhibition Liquid Gender, Vogler will present a selection of sculptures that are part of his Menina series started in 2013 during the first residence of the artist at Espronceda.

The central work of the exhibition will be an installation consisting of two connected projections together with a large bronze sculpture. The first projection will be visible on the main wall of the gallery – recorded with a video camera in the city centre of Barcelona. It will be serving as a setting for Vogler’s bronze Menina|3 (2013-2016, 140×92,5×48,4cm), whilst on the opposite wall the second projection will screen a recording of the bronze Menina|6 (2014, 114x77x46cm) – taken in the rural landscape of North Friesland.

The fixed frame of the sculpture, positioned in the movement of the landscape without narrative or logic meaning, will be in contrast with different and immersive sounds diffused in the space, which give the audience a perceptive and multi-sensorial experience. The site specific sound project Emotional Decrypter will be made in collaboration with the Italian musician and sound artist Francesco Giannico and it is meant as a sonic support for Liquid Gender. It will amplify the idea of transformation through two interconnected sound spatialisations – two audio tracks that are assembled from digital manipulations of different audio samples recorded from Vogler’s bronze sculptures. The spectator can experience these by the use of wireless headphones. While moving freely through the installation, one can simply switch from one radio channel to the other.

In addition there will be a selection of small bronzes on display from the Inter*Venus and the Miniature Menina series, and these will partly also be shown on photographs which were captured in different places of the world, once again referring to racial, cultural and sexual differences.

“Agoraphonia” è un progetto sonoro partecipativo di Francesco Giannico e Giulio Aldinucci, focalizzato sulle relazioni tra le persone negli ambienti dove queste si intrecciano con più facilita: le piazze. Grazie ad una call internazionale durata circa 5 mesi e partita lo scorso 18 luglio 2015 (data del world listening day) sono stati infatti raccolti numerose registrazioni provenienti da ogni parte del mondo di altrettante piazze e contenenti suoni che fotografano un momento particolare, una situazione specifica.

La piazza è uno spazio pubblico usato abitualmente dalla comunità per ritrovarsi ed intrattenere relazioni; è dunque semplice intuire come una registrazione di questi centri nevralgici costituisca un documento d’inestimabile valore, non solo da un punto di vista sonoro, ma anche culturale.

Durante il prossimo World Listening Day 2016, l’etichetta russa Dronarivm pubblicherà un disco realizzato dagli stessi Giannico ed Aldinucci contenente un lavoro di rielaborazione elettronica delle registrazioni pervenute. Tutti i contributi audio verranno inoltre citati nella sezione credits del sito agoraphonia.com.

L’installazione sonora si traduce in una quadrifonia pilotata da un pc laptop con scheda audio apposita posta ai margini della stanza. In sovrimpressione verrà proiettata la parte video che compone il lavoro, una serie di riprese effettuate in contesti urbani all’interno di piazze e rimontate assieme a videoregistrazioni di webcam con inquadratura fissa su alcune tra le piazze più conosciute al mondo.

FRANCESCO GIANNICO (I) // field recordings, electroacoustic ambient

Musicista elettroacustico, video artista e web designer, Francesco Giannico si è diplomato in Musicologia e Beni Musicali presso l’Università di Lecce con una tesi sulla storia della musica per il cinema. Assieme ad Alessio Ballerini ha fondato AIPS – Archivio Italiano Paesaggi Sonori nel 2010 e l’etichetta Oak Editions nel 2013. Il suo approccio musicale si può descrivere come un viaggio cinematico che verte sul confine tra diversi linguaggi digitali, incorporando talvolta anche elementi melodici e strutture delicate. Nella sua miscela sonora sono presenti costantemente anche strumenti tradizionali come chitarra e pianoforte, all’interno di strutture interrotte o lunghi e sognanti tappeti sonori.

GIULIO ALDINUCCI (I) // field recordings, electroacoustic ambient

Giulio Aldinucci è nato a Siena nel 1981. Attivo da anni nell’ambito della sperimentazione musicale elettroacustica, la sua ricerca si focalizza sempre su tecniche di sintesi diverse e sulla riflessione sul paesaggio sonoro. Dal 2006 al 2011, sotto il nome del suo progetto musicale Obsil (OBserving SILence), ha pubblicato tre album su cd. Ha poi pubblicato quattro album a suo nome: “Tarsia” (Nomadic Kids Republic, 2012), “Aer” (Dronarivm, 2014), “Spazio Sacro” (Time Released Sound, 2015) e “Yellow Horse” (Manyfeetunder, 2016). Oltre alla partecipazione a numerose compilation (tra le quali Home Normal Elements e The Wire Tapper), lavori collettivi ed alla realizzazione di due ep, ha composto musica per performance teatrali, video arte e cortometraggi, vincendo vari premi, ed ha contribuito alla realizzazione di istallazioni, come “Sounding Door” (parte del progetto Talking Doors di Julijonas Urbonas), opera vincitrice dell’Award of Distinction in Interactive Art al Prix Ars Electronica 2010. Nel giugno 2013, insieme ad Attilio Novellino, ha lanciato il progetto “Postcards from Italy”, realizzato dall’Archivio Italiano Paesaggi Sonori e Gianmarco Del Re.

METROPHONY - A Soundscape journey in the subway of Rome

Metrophony

By | a/v Installations, News

On August 6, 2013, I’ve recorded the entire route of the “B” line of the subway in the city of Rome, that connects the “Rebibbia” station with the “Laurentina” station, and the “B1” line that connects the ‘Bologna’ station with the ‘Conca D ‘Oro’ station… Audio samples collected were manipulated and transformed electronically, and enriched with synth and/or musical instruments such as guitars, piano, violins. The result is “Metrophony”, which is also an art installation.

Main idea is that the metro trip represents a dinamic soundscape in conflict with a static soundscape boxed in itself with a lot of samples already listened in a circular way like the mechanical sounds, doors of the train, train brakes and so on.

In the general path of the train and in the long to medium term we can understand how actually even the so-called dynamic soundscape is in fact a static soundscape because every passing day it becomes more akin to himself.

Metrophony has been released on late october 2014 for Time Released Sounds

http://timereleasedsound.com/shop/releases/francesco-giannico-metrophony-standard-version/

TRS047 is an atmospheric and underground metro centric release from Italian sound artist, Francesco Giannico, entitled “Metrophony”. On August 6, 2013, Giannico recorded the entire route of the “B” line of the subway in the city of Rome, that connects the “Rebibbia” station with the “Laurentina” station, and the “B1” line that connects the ‘Bologna’ station with the ‘Conca D ‘Oro’ station… Audio samples collected were manipulated and transformed electronically, and enriched with synth and/or musical instruments such as guitars, piano, violins. The result is “Metrophony” which is also an art installation.

For the deluxe limited version, in an edition of just 75 copies, we decided to change mediums and worked in the neighboring Berkeley silkscreening workshop called the Grease Diner. The set of hand silkscreened 6” square prints are renditions of the dark and moody photographs taken by Giannico himself in the subway. Each of these 12 unique prints is printed on a different sort of paper… ancient ledger papers, music sheets, rice papers, antique vellum, cardboard etc. They come in a vintage, hand stamped, 7” 45rpm sleeve from a 60 year old vinyl binder. Each outer envelope is then tied up with a string, from which hangs a used ticket from the Rome metro system. Also included within the set of prints is a scrap of paper detritus from the stations and trains, and a factory pressed CD in a hand stamped cotton sleeve.

cine-installazione in bianco e nero di Francesco Giannico

<<Un lavoro filmico incentrato sulla città vecchia di Taranto, un filmato di 15 minuti in bianco e nero in cui emerge forte la discrasia suono-immagini. I campioni audio registrati in occasione del workshop in ecologia acustica “Taranto Sonora” condotto da Francesco Giannico nel 2010, sono stati lavorati in modo da ottenere una soundscape composition che accompagna in modo empatico lo spettatore lungo il corso del filmato ma è assolutamente asincrono, nonostante il bacino di raccolta delle sorgenti sonore sia lo stesso.>>

Suggestions‘ is the new audio-visual project, or cine installation born from a collaboration between the
musician and video artist Francesco Giannico and the photographer and video
artist Mary Levykina.
A project born from a simple web mutual infatuation between the works of
both artists. The shots taken by Mary Levynika near Tiraspol and Chishinau
represent an autumn landscape silent and dogmatic full of meaning but silent
at the same time so that combination with ambient electroacoustic music by
Francesco Giannico give rise to a place beyond time and space, a personal
and intimate universe of meaning from which everyone can draw their own
“suggestions”. And from that place, from that center line … mindless … it is
wonderful to discover that you can get experiences that go beyond your
conscious mind.

The last Drop of Soul

By | a/v Installations
[vimeogallery]
[/vimeogallery]There are activities and experiences that need to breathe once more off to have the duration of oxygen. Reconciled with the slow sunrise and sunset in The last drop of soul, video-installation of Giannico Francesco and Fabio Orsi, young Italian artists engaged for years in terms of electronic music and video, first of all wants to be a fracture of the presence of things, recovery of cognitive and affective relationship with the phenomenal reality against the progressive atrophy of experience as a mutilation, distortion, loss of openness to the complexity of the world, including increased speed of the absolute in today’s society.
The work consists of two videos that show the slow rise and death of the day (Sunrise, Sunset), projected onto 2 screens arranged facing each other, two white pillows on the floor and headphones for the user. The videos and the recording of the sounds were made by the two artists in an agricultural community (coop “Robert Owen”) located near Taranto, a city of south-east of Italy, between the (day) and (day) in June 2009. In both videos the raised point of view and the fixed camera emphasize the minimum movements of mostly natural elements such as clouds, birds, the foliage of the trees, while the presence of man is mentioned only indirectly, by a power line, the road and masonry buildings in Sunrise, as well as from smokestacks and blast furnaces of the steel factory, the airplane or the artificial light that can be seen in the distance at sunset. The music resulting from the reworking of the sounds recorded live during the 2 different moments of the day, dashed the variety of pure emotions, enhancing the atmosphere of the scenarios. Fluid sound textures mark the lights that color and paint the day. As voices from the past, as images wich have the flavour of distand lands, all the elements are mixed together buidling sound paintings that become just memories, coming from the imaginative past, living in the true present reality and fading away into the dreamy fragile future. No one is listening to the dead leaves souls, no one is watching the life of small things. All change, as a fake loop.

[/vimeogallery]This video is like a kind of “final essay” part of the workshop in Ecology of Sound “Taranto Sonora” in southern Italy during 11th to 17th august 2010. After the creation of the soundmap of Taranto City (http://sonorapuliae.altervista.org) we worked to realize a videoart clip made using audio samples recorded during the workshop , audio stuff tooken during the real time processing and performance on 17th august. Thanks to all guys involved into the workshop in Ecology of Sound “Taranto Sonora” : Carlo Montanari , Hector Ledo , Lucia Frascella, Pino Fusco, Fabio Uda, Matteo Allegretti, Isabella Mongelli, Giada Giovanile,Remigio Furlanut. A special thanks to my friend Alessandro Altavilla for the help in these days. A big thanks also to all active supporters of the project who believed in this crazy idea.
Thanks again Francesco Giannico

Pollino Sky Festival

[/vimeogallery] This video was made using audio and video materials recorded on 31th August 2010 under the project “Pollino Sky Festival” in the town of “San Severino Lucano, Cresta Madonna del Pollino, Piano di Ruggio”into the National Park of Pollino. The collection of audio samples elaborated in electroacoustic way (ambient,folkexperimental genre) represent a a sort of soundscape composition enriching experiences produced in previous years with “radio listening”. Listening the soundscape helps blind people representing to them an acoustic overview of the environment. The work is enriched with “dark sky” data acquired through equipment SQM, geolocation data of audio samples with the help of google maps and bing through the BBC site “Save Our Sounds”.

Urban Sounds

By | a/v Installations
[vimeogallery]
[/vimeogallery]The video “Urban Sounds from The Factory City”, has been made possible thanks to some prints of Ilva (the notorious industrial complex), which were “stolen” with the well-known virtual globe program Google Earth, and then digitally reworked. Then the same images have been entered in a freeware to be converted into indefinite sound samples that’ll do as a layer of a more elaborate electronic piece that works with the visuals in a synesthetic connection.This connection is made stronger by the lecture of some passages from Albert Camus’ “The Plague”, read by Amy Denio, a known name in the american independent culture. Multi-instrumentalist and polyglot singer, with an incredibly immense and multifaceted carreer, since the ’80 with her own tapelabel Spoot Music.(myspace.com/deniomusic) A mix of techniques, fields and allusions, from net-art, here proposed in physical and spatial boundaries, to visual art, to sound design.The intent of “Urban Sounds from The Factory City” is to point up on the thorny issue of heavy industialisation and on the huge turmoils that it can bring, but also on the distresses and stimuluses that this “plague” can inoculate in the minds of someone that tries an uncritical reading of the context… precisely, an artistic reading.
