Elettromorfosi

ELETTROMORFOSI (2009-2010) sound samples of electric machines electronically processed

‘I take it that music is the art most fit to express the fine quality of machines. Machines are now a part of life, it is proper that men should feel something about them; there would be something weak about art if it couldn’t deal with this new content’.

Ezra Pound, Antheil and the Treatise on Harmony, New York 1968.

SPAZIO VENEZIANO AND SOUNDING TREE

Spazio veneziano (work in progress), for Sounding tree, voice, Live electronics, digital sound file on an unspublished text by Luigi Nono
