“Untitled_TeVeT” in Ondarock
L’acusmatica sembra vivere un periodo di inatteso interesse anche grazie allo straordinario intuito del Centro Culturale San Fedele che ha fatto diventare Milano – grazie all’avveniristico Acousmonium – la vera capitale italiana ed europea dell’arte acusmatica. Nata dalla mente ipercreativa del compositore francese Pierre Schaeffer – padre della musique concrète e pionieristico creatore di suoni che hanno contribuito a plasmare il 900 – l’acusmatica è un genere di musica estremamente di nicchia, nata da manipolazione di suoni ottenuti da altoparlanti o sintetizzatori quasi sempre accompagnata da una componente visiva.
Federico Dal Pozzo è un giovane musicista che propone una lunghissima composizione (59 minuti) per musica concreta che vorrebbe captare i suoni creati dal congelamento di un blocco di ghiaccio di 380 Kg. Idea bizzarra ma non nuova in quanto a immaginario degli ultimi decenni dei musicisti di musica elettronica e ambientale, da sempre affascinati dall’idea di ricreare le sensazioni estreme di paesaggi freddi e glaciali.
“Untitled_TeVeT” è divisa in due parti che sono l’evoluzione l’una dell’altra; la prima ricorda spazi cosmici con fluttuazioni ora liquide ora granulose (fase liquida e fase intermedia); la seconda, descrivendo la parte finale del processo di congelamento, sembra rappresentare la stasi assoluta, fase di quasi immobilità della materia sottoposta a temperature estreme.
La tavolazza dei suoni di Dal Pozzo è visionaria, dove per visione si intende la capacità di vedere oltre, una capacità di intuizione astratta pur nell’intento di descrivere un evento. Se la materia produce musica, Dal Pozzo è uno di quei musicisti che è in grado di coglierla; la speranza è quella di poterlo vedere all’opera con suoni e immagini nel tempio milanese dell’acusmatica, l’Acousmonium.

‘AN EARLY OXIDATION’ BY SAVERIO ROSI WINS THE SOUNDTALES CALL
The jury composed by Alessio Ballerini, Gianmarco del Re, Matteo Meda, Sabrina Maggiori and Michela Acquili, selected the winning track among a group of other 4, which made it to the final cut too. Given the high artistic content, all these finalist tracks have been selected to be included in a digital release, which can be freely downloaded at Creative Commons.
The digital release tracks are:
“An Early Oxidation” by Saverio Rosi
“Joinery and Harmony” by Andrea Gianessi
“Iron Trees” by Lyef
“Malinconia” by Martin Hoogeboom
Jury’s reasons behind winner election
“An Early Oxidation” by Saverio Rosi is a fascinating and mysterious track. This gaunt and minimalist record demonstrates a remarkable ability to catch the essential, managing to create a destabilizing and unsettling atmosphere, acting on listener’s perceptions, and playing on frequencies in an evocative way. The track is composed by a barely sketched musical instrumentation, perfectly balancing and melting with the final composition, never overpowering it.
