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...

ondas de sombra

for Marina Hasselberg Maps and Shadows Is it possible to transform different representations of music to space, and vice versa? Is there a point where they collapse into each other? Sound like space is a place in which we are embedded, in which the sensory experience of reality and artistic form can finally converge. Space as a dimension of time implies movement, maps and presence. Sonorous spaces – like traversable spaces – map our perception of time; and to light sound should be compared when sound is not just what we hear but...

miniatures on 5 drawings by Janice Wong

Five of Janice Wong’s drawings inspired these resonant electronic miniatures. I worked on these images using various readings to generate counterpoints of sinewaves and resonant textures that follow and embody the transparent and spacious structures of Janice’s work. The sound was captured live in the room with 4 microphones. No speakers have been used as my setup includes only metal and wood resonators. – May 23, 2020   Instrumentation: Blippoo Box, Pulse Generator, Sinewave Generator, Cymbal, Steel Drum & Red Cedar...

MAGIK is a new Vancouver-based project that brings together Giorgio Magnanensi’s resonant woods with two of Vancouver’s most respected musicians, Marina Hasselberg cello, Kenton Loewen drums and Ucluelet based video artists Nicolas Teichrob. MAGIK plays within a multi-layered, live electro acoustic surround sound-space among flat audio panels of hand cut West Coast Red Cedar, Sitka Spruce and Pacific Maple. The panels serve both as wooden resonators and diffusers, becoming the medium of our written and improvised soundscapes. Sound become...

TDU MH – il fuoco e l’artificio (2018) for cello, 16 cedar and maple flat panel resonators and live electronics WEST COAST RADIANS, March 10, 2018     TDU MH has been written with the support of the Canada Council for the Arts and it is dedicated to Marina Hasselberg. This work is both a statement and a poetic exploration. The statement displays sound in its visceral immanence – il fuoco, the body, the voice.

little wheel spin and spin

from Buffy Remix Veda Hille, CBC Radio Orchestra, Alain Trudel Conductor little wheel Sometimes special songs seem to give a strong voice to the spirit of our time. This project and its making was also special in the way it manifested itself. Maybe it’s just about beauty, something we only acknowledge as an exception and not as an option. “We are helpless, we are part of, we are little wheels. One and one and one make three… giving everything they have.” (Carl Wilson) So let’s hope in a philosophy that transcends these...
