il tempo dei baleni (4F)

Ten years ago I wrote this short piece as a little homage to a great man, musician and friend, Franco Donatoni. Today, almost 10 years later, I’m thinking about Franco again in the 20th anniversary of his passing. The piece was written for the mdi ensemble which performed at the Venice Biennale in September 2010 in a program dedicated to Franco who passed away twenty years ago, August 17, 2000 in Milano. I had never written a piece dedicated to Franco before as all I have been writing in the last 40 years is in some and different ways...

[…] Un’ansia inconsueta da qualche tempo si accende in me alla sera, e non è più rimpianto delle gioie lasciate, come accadeva nei primi tempi del viaggio; piuttosto è l’impazienza di conoscere le terre ignote a cui mi dirigo.

failure and resistance

failure and resistance […] The only thing I deeply, avidly, wanted was a lucid, unillusioned eye. I finally found it in the art of the novel. This is why for me being a novelist was more than just working in one “literary genre” rather than another; it was an outlook, a wisdom, a position; a position that would rule out identification with any politics, any religion, any ideology, any moral doctrine, any group; a considered, stubborn, furious non-identification, conceived not as evasion or passivity but as resistance,...

TDU/XLAB non è una composizione musicale, un’opera d’arte, o un oggetto. TDU/XLAB è uno spazio per un pensiero sonoro: dialoghi attraverso e all’interno del suono, dell’immaginazione e del gioco. L’ensemble strumentale è guidato in un processo di co-creazione sulla base di esplorazioni di oggetti sonori (acustici e elettronici), tessiture, rumori, timbri, spazi, silenzi e risonanze. TDU/XLAB scaturisce quindi da energie individuali e collettive e offre interazioni variabili a partire da (e viaggiando attraverso)...

Things Resounding Things

On October 31 I had the pleasure to visit John Brennan and his new and beautiful installation Things Resounding Things just before the November 1st opening at The Basically Good Media Lab at Emily Carr University of Arts + Design. Here are a couple of reflections instigated by John’s resounding space. Things Resounding Things is an emergent sound space for both an intimate and a collective experience within resonance. I feel deeply attracted by these kinds of spaces as I find them welcoming, activating, and bare to the point of listening and...

First of all, a resonance on the word “resonance”—on the one hand it means something like “echo,” or “reverberation,” on the other hand, the word “reason” is somehow hidden in “resonance.” The French verb r.sonner makes this resonance even stronger—one might even be tempted to invent the word re[a]sonance here. Thus, a kind of...

The work sits at the intersection of portraiture, film, theatre and video game traditions. It plays with and subverts the expectation of portraiture & interactive 3d games, while considering the inherent theatrical, filmic and painterly dimensions and expectations of these mediums.              ...

happy new year!

Happy New Year! Buon Anno! A tutti gli amici, vicini e lontani. To all my friends, near and far away. For a fuller life, where artistic behaviours would fully restore what neither politics or religion will never achieve. Potentiality, lots of work, butterflies, work for love, work for poetry, the beauty of any language, voice, sound, person and imagination. Love to all! Giorgio        ...
