Forêt nom féminin

My first full work as a sound creator is out :)
“Forêt nom féminin” is a piece in six movements inspired by the homonymous book by Jérôme de Vienne, published by ISTI MIRANT STELLA in 2021 and the website foretnomfeminin.hotglue.me, an ongoing conversation between Diana Duta and Jérôme de Vienne about translation, the infinite permutations of language, a less-than-human word, an errant narrative of many voices, above all a labyrinthine and obscure research method.
The process, following the six scores found on the website, is based on the collection of different elements and fragments (through field recording) and their recombination (through editing and mixing) in order to build a sense of landscape and a narrative which traverses it from within.
Special thanks to Diana Duta for involving me in this beautiful project.

Collaboration with Andrea Mancianti

In the last weeks I had the possibility to continue working with Andrea Mancianti, an Italian composer, sound artist and guitarist based in Helsinki.
Our collaboration started last summer in Florence, thanks to a residency at Murate Art District, allowing us to explore territories of co-creation. 
We met again recently in Helsinki and after a 10 days residency we were able to finally present the current state of our co-compositional effort.
Here the video of the full performance at Muu Galleria in Helsinki.

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!!
