The Tempo Reale Collection originated in 2012 on the occasion of Tempo Reale’s 25th anniversary, aiming to provide documentation of works produced over recent years, and characterized by a collaboration with musicians and artists from the international scene, as well as with musical groups from various fields and with different languages.
Elettroshock is the 9th CD in the TR Collection and will be available from December 16th. This is a recording of the project performed with Pierpaolo Capovilla within Tempo Reale Festival 2017, in the courtyard of the former psychiatric hospital of San Salvi, a reading with musical improvisation dedicated to madness, where Capovilla’s ruthless interpretation traces an inner path that departs from the abyss aiming towards a search for freedom, merging with the sonic multiplicity of the Tempo Reale Electroacoustic Ensemble.

Dedicated to the mentally insane. Mental illness as an existential condition and disorder, deprivation of freedom, segregation. The project investigates the topic of forced detention due to mental illness. The diversity of stories and voices, direct testimonies and traces of actual persons, merges with the manifold sounds of the Tempo Reale Electroacoustic Ensemble and the narrating voice of Pierpaolo Capovilla. The ensemble and its conductor are tasked with translating this tension into music, through a total improvisation which is constantly changing and never stationary.
