Su richiesta di Francesco Paladino, per il suo De Musica Et In Fungorum Effectis, ci siamo reincarnati – per qualche minuto – in Mike Bongiorno. E’ uscito fuori il Mike più alieno e pop, un crooner che vaga convinto (con la voce, dunque il corpo) tra lo spot pubblicitario di una grappa e Betelgeuse, la spalla di Orione. Tra un po’ lo ascolterete, mentre finge di duettare con John Cage..
“My times – my wild beast,
Who will dare to look into your eyes
And to weld with his blood
The severed vertebrae of two centuries?
But your spine has been smashed forever,
My beautiful, pitiful age,
And grimacing dumbly
You now you look back, freebly,
A beast once supple and lithe,
At the tracks left by your pawns.”
Osip Mandel’stam (1918)
100 years ago, just like today and tomorrow, producing art must be ahead of our times.
We have to read and occupy the future because the present, caught in a web, is only a digital lie.
“O’er the land of the freaks” is about sound, vision and biology.
A film for the ears, literature made of chords and vocal harmonies.
Pix by Luca Giordana
A collaboration with Francesco Paladino for “Icereport”, his new cd, and a (virtual) duet with Paola Tagliaferro.
Final mix for “O’er the land of the freaks” with Fabrizio Naniz Barale at Piave 34 Recording Studio in Cuneo.
Everythin’ is possible but nothin’ is real.
It’s a novel, vocal poetry in motion, a different approach to sound and word.
Stay tuned, guys.
