Happy to announce a new release for the digital label Superpang.
“Da Rin” is a work based on a selection of field recordings made in the Val Da Rin, a small valley located in the Dolomites in the province of Belluno (in Italy’s Veneto region). It is a side valley, to the right of the Val d’Ansiei, in the municipality of Auronzo di Cadore. Here are the coordinates to reach the site: 46° 32′ 21.4″ N 12° 21′ 42.3″ E.
“Lost & Found” is a deferred improvised ambient music work for acoustic guitar and piano. In April 2020, during the first lockdown, Stefano Guzzetti improvised on the piano while listening in headphones to eight acoustic guitar tracks he received by Enrico Coniglio. Completed with the addition of discrete and never overly distinctive electronic parts, “Lost & Found” is a collection of pieces in which sounds alternate themselves with pauses and silences, enhancing tensions and harmonic consonances. From isolationist melancholy to vibrant joy open to hope.

Some time ago I was invited to contribute to the polish magazine Avant, Volume XI, Issue 3/2020 with an interview on the volume “LISTENING TO THE URBANOCENE. PEOPLE – SOUNDS – CITIES”, among Francisco Lopez, Lisa Gaupp, Luís Cláudio Ribeiro, Martin Butler and many others. Take a tour.
The project investigates five different sound scenes taken from Venice everyday life. The aim is to present a sonic portrait of the city as to help students from the italian course of Melbourne’s Italian Institute of Culture to dive into a non-stereotypied venetian atmosphere.
The online sound installation was curated by Leandro Pisano, as part of the project Immersive cities, which collects sounds and voices from five italian cities: Venezia, Torino, Napoli, Bari and Palermo. All the field recordings and mix were realised together with sound artist Nicola Di Croce.
