TRK. Glitch Club
TRK. Glitch Club is a new series of events by Tempo Reale, starting on February 25, 2022, born as a metamorphosis of the TRK. Sound Club experimental music shows. It will be held at Limonaia di Villa Strozzi, the historical venue of Tempo Reale’s concerts, now transformed into a club, and each event will be split into two sets: the first will host an international artist, while the second will be a Glitch Party, i.e. a free improvisation on the theme of glitch. Starting from the second event, the Glitch Parties will be open to all interested musicians, according to the participation instructions described on Tempo Reale’s channels.
The events of this first edition of TRK. Glitch Club are:
TRK. GLITCH CLUB #1
Chris Pitsiokos + Glitch Party
Chris Pitsiokos (1990) is a saxophone player, composer, and improviser from Brooklyn. Thanks to his research on the tonal potential of the alto sax, he has developed a unique voice and expanded the vocabulary of his instrument, multiplying its communicative and formal possibilities. Among others, he has collaborated with Otomo Yoshihide, Sachiko M, Tatsuya Yoshida, Wendy Eisenberg, Nate Wooley, Miya Masaoka, Paul Lytton, Peter Evans, Weasel Walter, Jaimie Branch. Pitsiokos has been praised by Rolling Stone Magazine for his “surprisingly original vision”, and DownBeat Magazine has defined his band CP Unit as “a persuasive combination of harmonic jazz and contemporary noise rock”.
Glitch Party with: Agnese Banti, Francesco Canavese, Simone Faraci, Andrea Gozzi, Giovanni Magaglio, Luisa Santacesaria
TRK. GLITCH CLUB #2 by PHASE and Tempo Reale
Dj Balli, Nicolò Masiero Sgrinzatto & Luca Maccioni HYPERSKATE + Glitch Party
DJ Balli, with Nicolò Masiero Sgrinzatto and Luca Maccioni, will present the world premiere of the performance HYPERSKATE, conceived starting from the In SkateBoredWe Noize! (2007) performative project.
HYPERSKATE is a hybrid multimedia performance that brings many elements into play: industrial conveyor belts, skateboards, skateboarders, lights, sensors, noises, and a mixer that processes the sounds produced by the many actions in space. HYPERSKATE is a microscope that enlarges the sound of skateboards, used for tricks or as transport, travelling at different speeds, producing sounds that are always new and different. The HYPERSKATE performance sees skateboarding as a courier of change and of horizontal participation, an action of temporary urban regeneration and, in the skateboarder’s performance, an (in)conscious eco-performative exercise.
Upon opening the concert, Riccardo Balli and Jacopo Buono will introduce the project with a talk titled “The sound of skateboarding as a soundmark of the metropolitan experience”.
Glitch Party featuring: Biagio Cavallo, Cosimo Fiaschi, Flavia Passigli, Tancredi Ricci, Leonardo Rubboli, Francesco Toninelli
TRK. GLITCH CLUB #3
Max Eilbacher + Glitch Party
Max Eilbacher is a cross-media artist who works primarily with sound, video, and performance. His research in sound draws on the traditions of algorithmic composition, of musique concrete, and of avantgarde performance. Making use of these experiences, Eilbacher creates conceptual systems where synthesis and software environments, with high processing intensity, are structures with a compositional and sculptural form. The sonic construction of the social sphere, of the political sphere, and of the physical sphere is investigated by treating space, timbre, and perception as elastic and malleable parameters.
Glitch Party featuring: Roberto Cagnoli, Demetrio Cecchitelli, Jacopo Cenni, Simone Grande, Ldgu, Demetrio Spira
Concerts begin at 21.30 hrs, admission 5€
