Polyphonic Performance Spaces – presentation

On Feb 15th 2021 Martin Loridan and I gave the first presentation on our collaboration, hosted by the festival Polyphonic Performance Spaces at the Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel.
Martin has been researching on the theme of “le souffle” (the breathe) since several years at the University of Leeds, and his interests crossed my research on co-composition for accordion and pedalboards.
Here the full program of the festival and below the video of the talk:

Live presentation with Martin Loridan on Monday 15th at Koninklijk Conservatorium Brussel

Luca Piovesan accordion&pedalboards
On Monday 15th in the morning I will be presenting the first output of a beautiful collaboration with Martin Loridan (PhD candidate at Leeds University), on my new setup for accordion and pedalboards.
“Collaborative Composition for a Black Box” is the first artistic output of my research on this peculiar setup.
You can listen to the presentation (and the premiere of the piece!) in streaming or…even LIVE if you are based in Bruxelles!!!! There are a few seats available, and it would be lovely to have real people in front of us!!
 

Intervista su “SOS Fisarmonica”

Qualche giorno fa ho avuto il piacere di essere intervistato dall’amica artista e costruttrice di fisarmoniche Francesca Gallo, per il suo canale YouTube “SOS Fisarmonica”.
Una bella chiacchierata sul mio percorso di formazione, il mio sviluppo artistico e la mia attualità.

Happy to be behind the mixer of another beautiful disc by my friend Marco Fusi.
This time we followed the precious sound direction and tape work of Pierluigi Billone for what really looks like a milestone recording of this masterpiece by Luigi Nono.

Thank you to Denis Schuler and Ensemble Vide for their support!

Conservatoriando – intervista

Una piacevole e istruttiva chiacchierata sul mondo della fisarmonica con Francesco Perri, neo direttore del Conservatorio di Cosenza, che ringrazio tantissimo per l’ospitalità nel suo canale e per le domande.

ALTERITÀ – Bruna Esperi [Cultural Manager • Community Mediator] + Luca Piovesan [Musician • Researcher • Producer]
un progetto per “Ti do la mia parola” curated by Butik.

Una quotidianità rubata, incastrata nella morsa dell’imprevedibilità. Suoni e rumori che popolano una nuova essenza dell’esistere intersecandosi con le parole. Un dialogo che porta alla luce la vulnerabilità, le affinità e le prospettive che culminano in  una armonia plurale tra due alterità sullo sfondo della città diffusa Rotterdam-Bruxelles. È così che Bruna Esperi e Luca Piovesan interpretano il Lockdown sotto il segno della parola “Alterità”.

New album and BBC!

New website… new album out soon… but mainly… back on stage!!!
I haven’t been on stage since almost 7 months. I am so happy this is going to happen soon, and with a project I care so much: “Encyclopédie de la parole: suite 4” by Joris Lacoste, Pierre-Yves Macé, Sébastien Roux, with my loved friends of Ictus.
The longly postponed premiere will happen at the Theatre National de Strasbourg on the coming weekend, three shows from 25th to 27th September 2020.
We’ll wait for you there, defying covid and the boundaries it is causing.
