FGTecnopolo Building, Spazio Eventi

On November 9th 2013, at the Spazio Eventi of FGTecnopolo Building (Tiburtino Technologic Park), the percussionist Philippe Spiesser performed the music composed by Laura Bianchini andMichelangelo Lupone in Chant de la matière,for Feed-Drum and SkinAct. These “augmented” percussion instruments, in which the acoustic and electronic technologies gather to create new sound and interpretative possibilities, has been presented and played in the same place where CRM - Centro Ricerche Musicali operates, in the Tiburtino Technologic Park.

Philippe Spiesser showed how, through Feed-Drum and SkinAct, a performer can play with matter vibrations, transforming sounds from impulsive to resonant, until a crossed voices chant that migrates in a continuous flow within the different expressive moments of the two composers’ works.

In collaboration with CEMAT, RadioCEMAT, Virtual Consulting, FGTecnopolo
