la rassegna “fonosfera”: programma [1981]

Programma di performance e letture alla GNAM

cliccare per ingrandire

Foglio di programma della rassegna “Fonosfera”, presso la Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna (Roma). Il periodo è, presumibilmente, il settembre 1981.

Collezione Giuseppe Garrera

 

audio integrale dell’incontro del 31 agosto @ embrice: materiali sonori di l. venitucci, materiali testuali di f. cirilli, f. lapiana., v. ostuni, a. raos, m. zaffarano

 

La lettura si è svolta all’aperto, con le immaginabili e conseguenti dispersioni del suono. L’audio è stato raccolto molto semplicemente attraverso un cellulare, che dunque riproduce anche i rumori ambientali. Di qui la qualità a dir poco ‘sporca’ della registrazione. Che però, proprio per questo, include tutti i dati della situazione per ciò che veramente è stata. È solo una traccia, è un documento: e come tale viene offerto qui.

L’ordine dei lettori è alfabetico: Fiammetta Cirilli, Fabio Lapiana (letto da M.G.), Vincenzo Ostuni, Andrea Raos, Michele Zaffarano. Tutti gli interventi musicali sono di Luca Venitucci.

I libri da cui sono stati tratti i brani letti:

Fiammetta Cirilli, Disordini (Diaforia)
Fabio Lapiana, Cose e altre cose (Tic)
Vincenzo Ostuni, Faldone zero-cinquantanove, novantotto-novantanove. Estratti, II (Aragno)
Andrea Raos, O!h (Blonk)
Michele Zaffarano, Poesie per giovani adulti (Scalpendi)

from SHIFT (a 2011 interview to Atsuhiro Ito by Julie Murikawa, http://www.shift.jp.org/en/archives/2011/03/atsuhiro_ito.html):
Atsuhiro Ito “crafted an instrument called the “OPTRON,” which outputs noise from the electrical discharge of a fluorescent light, when he was working on fluorescent light art exhibits in the 90’s. He plays the OPTRON not only as a solo act but also with other musicians both in Japan and overseas”.

An excerpt from the interview:

Why did you want to be an artist? Could you tell us the process of becoming an artist?

This is a problem of wording, but I have never been wanted to become an “artist.” (To me, it is hard to understand what people in this country want to achieve by becoming artists. It almost seems like the word “artist” itself can impress people. I know that it is a very convenient word to explain what people do though.)

In my case, rather than trying to contribute to the world, I’m more interested in creating things with my own hands and playing and listening to sounds. Since I have never stopped doing this, people started to think that this person might be an “artist” and refer to me as such. I have never really added any meaning or social contributions to my art and performances, and will continue to create and perform just because the visual and audible joy and stimulation keep me excited. By the way, my social positions are ‘an art creator and an OPTRON player.’

[…]

If you were not an artist, what would you be instead?

I don’t even know. Maybe a criminal or something. I bet that I’d be making a little better money than my current situation.

“asemic sound cycles” by félix-antoine morin [& other/older performances]

Asemic Sound Cycles at Galeri Salihara
April 10, 2022 – April 24, 2022

Asemic Sound Cycles (2022), by Félix-Antoine Morin, is an exhibition specially developed for the Salihara Arts Center (Jakarta, Indonesia). This exhibition consists of a series of graphic scores on polyester film as well as a sound installation in the center of the exhibition space.

Asemic Sound Cycles consists of a series of graphic scores on polyester film as well as a sound installation in the center of the Salihara Gallery.

Félix-Antoine Morin’s graphic scores represent existing musical forms whose basic structures are drawn from his repertoire of compositions. By this process, Morin maps out the metamorphosis of sound phenomena through a rhythmic and poetic graphic expression. He encourages the ambiguity between musical notation and pure pictorial symbolism.

The kinetic sound installation arranged in the center of the space is inspired by the “locked groove” technique, an expression invented by Pierre Schaeffer in the mid 20th century to describe this phenomenon in which the needle of a record player falls indefinitely in the same record groove. In the same way, this sound installation follows a unique circular route. This consists of a microphone that reacts like the needle of a record player on materials and textures arranged throughout the floor.

Asemic Sound Cycles is an exhibition specially developed for the Salihara Arts Center.

Félix-Antoine Morin’s graphic scores represent existing musical forms whose basic structures are drawn from his repertoire of compositions. Through a syncopated visual construction, by which he instinctively creates new connections between signs, he shifts the initial writing toward material abstraction. Preserving traces of the sound origin, the accumulation of elements gradually transforms each composition into an autonomous language that no longer references music.
By this process, Morin maps out the … [click to read more]

First solo exhibition of Félix-Antoin Morin in Turkey: Asemic Sound Mappings (Feb 19th – Mar 12th, 2022):

[…] The graphic language of the artist does not tend to have a fixed meaning, leaving the interpretation of the works free to the viewer, encouraging the ambiguity between musical notation and pure pictorial poetry. The artworks at the “Asemic Sound Mappings” exhibition display layered elements moving in the void, carrying rhythm to the surface by simultaneously expressing Morin’s musical and pictorial sensibilities […]

[…] Reunion is an event without a score; originally performed by playing a game of chess on a chessboard created by Lowell Cross. The game works as an indeterminate structure: as a game of chess is played, the moves of the players on the board activate four compositions and distribute them to eight speakers surrounding the audience.
