Teatri del suono / Chaos
Science in the City Festival – ESOF Trieste 2020
4-5 September 2020, Museo Sartorio – Trieste (Italy)
At last… We’re back!
Our new amazing project ” Teatri del suono / Chaos” moves from July to September2020.
Sounds, gestures, objects, words, visions. Collisions and convergences between music, science, technology and philosophy for a two-day immersion between concerts, performances, installations and talks with the public. From 4 to 5 September 2020, from 18 to 23, the spaces and garden of the Museo Sartorio in Trieste will be transformed into a stage of contemporary culture, where musicians, scientists, artists and philosophers from different European countries will stage the freedom, richness and complexity of knowledge, sharing it in its many fascinating differences of approach.
Entrance to all events is free. Food and drink will be available during the evening.
The detailed programme of the event will soon be available.

New CD release / concrezioni sonore by Agostino Di Scipio
The studio recording of chpn.3.2 variazioni di sensibilità al sè, for 3 performers, feedback network with piano, self-sensing actuators and other devices by Agostino Di Scipio is now available on cd.
The Stradivarius label has just released a new recording under the title concrezioni sonore with piano and live electronics works by Di Scipio performed by Ciro Longobardi and cantierezero (Stefania Amisano, Claudio Cristani – piano with electrodynamic actuators – and Giorgio Klauer – electroacoustics and digital signal processing). Here some words about this fascinating work that Agostino Di Scipio wrote for us in 2012 within the project “bodysnatchers/ultracorpi“. It was a amazing experience!
«This is a workshop for the exploration of electroacoustic devices designed and built by Giorgio Klauer, called self-sensing actuators. In the performance, these actuators are used by the two piani- sts to “inject” in the strings a number of selected recordings of Chopin piano music (chosen by the performers). The piano strings into which the injec- tion is made, are themselves selected according to any Chopin piano music fragment. The tiny resonances of the injection, are taken up in a larger electroacoustic chain, with microphones and speakers positioned just next to the piano or insi- de, whose sound loops back into the strings via the actuators. A complex system is accordingly established, which develops in a process of growth and failure. Some extra noise is inevitably added into the process due to the bodily contacts of performers against the piano wooden structure, as the latter handle the actuators to inject Chopin in the strings. The whole performance is framed into three sections, with two interleaving bridges. Written for (and with) the friends of cantierezero, in the days of Chopin’s 200th birthday celebrations».
