Music for Paolo Cavinato’s depths

After physically seeing Paolo Cavinato’s sculptures on exposition in the magnificent Palazzo Ducale in Mantova I have a better understanding of the reason why Mario Piavoli thought we three should have met.

Mario Piavoli has chosen one of my new songs to be the soundtrack of his video about Paolo Cavinato’s work.

I think it’s all about confidence in the depth, a serene exploration of the void.IMG_0013 IMG_0017 IMG_0022

The ArtSplaces series starts here

London, May the 1st, 2016.

That day I was visiting the Serpentine Galleries.
A funny displacement feeling captured my attention thanks to some sounds coming from both sides of the exposition internal entrance.
That was the moment I started to take some field-recordings of the situation.
After visiting the Serpentine Galleries I went to the Tate Modern.
Walking through the eimg_3884-tate-modernxpositions’ rooms I was caught by another delicate emotional resonance.
Temporal suspension and physical floating were somehow represented by the experience of walking through the artworks.
The peak was reached when I entered the room where the video work by Gülsün Karamustafa “Memory of a Square” was playing.
I had never heard about this Artist before.
Something had happened.
Entering that room I understood what I would have done with the recordings I was collecting.

That event lead to many nice discovers and meetings, starting with connecting with a very gentle and passionate Tate Modern curator and a lovely synchronicity with a friend working at the Kassel Documenta, who was so kind to send me Gülsün Karamustafa’s book in the picture, printed by Documenta itself.

I will keep on investigating about the fascinating, delicate and intense feelings originating from the physical spaces of art expositions with a series that I called ArtSplaces.
I like the idea of this being the first step of a walk.

Here is the sound of my walk through Tate Modern, in and out of Gülsün Karamustafa. Suspended.

This event resonated with the feelings of temporal suspension and physical floating, which is the reason why it exists and resists in time in the form of audio material.

International Architecture Congress about Water and Landscape

Flos has performed for the International Architecture Congress about Water and Landscape that has been held in the amazing San Pietro in Mavino medieval church in Sirmione.
