in advance of the release…

In just a few weeks, Cristiano Bocci and I will be releasing our second collaboration, a collection of electroacoustic music and field recordings exploring the audio topography of atopias, or non-places–public spaces we pass through, use and leave behind more or less anonymously. To accompany the release I’ve written an essay that has just been published on Arteidolia. With photographs by Randee Silv.

silvia corda’s traces

I recently had the pleasure of recording one of the graphic scores created by Sardinian pianist/composer Silvia Corda as part of her Traces project. Intriguing, too, to hear the fine interpretations offered by Adriano Orru, Mauro Sambo, Gianni Mimmo, Gianni Lenoci, Paolo Chagas, and Pat Lugo and Marco Mal Loprieno, all of which can be heard on Silvia’s Soundcloud page. And finally, some reflections on the project in Percorsi Musicali.
