    notes #3 sound works 

    Sound and music have always been part of my research, both because I often use sound in my practice and also because I take inspiration from visual and social aspects of underground music scenes.
    I regularly listen to a lot of new music and from time to time I use to compile mixtapes and collections of sounds.
    Here is one of the latest mixes I have done (from the ‘hybrid’ series, focused on experimental techno) from my mixcloud channel:

    Last month I had the chance to publish a mixtape for a web radio called Fritto.fm; a Milan-based collective who daily stream new mixes (check out their archive).

    uh, if you like house music, I have just uploaded a summer mix dedicated to council estates:

    blob village live (cox18 version) 

    Last saturday (24/1) I went back to Milan for a live visual set in collaboration with Jack with our latest work. We played a 2hr set during the main act of a dance music event, a DJ set by the Bristol-based producer Alex Coulton.

    Our “Blob Village” is a post-apocalyptic environment populated by 3D animated hybrids, flesh collages with tech implants, internet-inspired characters, human bodies (and part of them) involved in repetitive dance gestures. The idea of this film performance is an attempt to build a live narrative made of digital paintings and sculptures, inspired by the role of GIF animation and appropriationism (as filtering/editing/selecting) in web based art.

    Image textures play an important role, Jack’s glossy materials and sci-fi patterns and lights contrasts with my Facebook’s palette camouflages and skin surfaces. Here’s a series of stills from animations we made with 3D objects found online (showed on a second projection):

    I also made a 3 hours warm up DJ set with a friend crossing experimental sounds about technology, post punk, dub, noise and techno.
