1. RICCARDO LA FORESTA (IT)

RICCARDO LA FORESTA is a percussionist and sound artist from Modena (IT) whose research of the last years wants to question the role of the drum as a percussive instrument. Resonances and vibrations generated treating the drum as an aerophone, create acoustic drones, ancestral melodies and complex beats that drastically distance the instrument from traditional drumming: it is called Drummophone.

Recorded in Modena, Italy

2. LUCA PIOVESAN(IT/BE)

LUCA PIOVESAN, gentle moment of music to cuddle ourself in these hard times: Dream, by John Cage, a piece for piano and its resonances, which I love to play echoing between the two keyboards of the accordion; Mad Rush by Philip Glass, dedicated to the first visit of the Dalai Lama to New York; and Palhaço by Egberto Gismonti, a piece swinging between the smiles and the melancholy of a clown.

Recorded in Brussels, Belgium

3. AYA SUZUKI (JP/BE)

AYA SUZUKI is a Japanese percussionist based on Japan and Belgium. Her work ranges from classical repertoire to contemporary sounds. Tonight she will happily play flower pods, performing To the earth for 4 flower pods and speaking percussionist by Frederic Rzewski.

Recorded in Ghent, Belgium

TERESA COS, The Archive of the Loops: Open Recording SessionThe Archive of Loops is an expanding archive of sound improvisations and the source material for compositions that play along with the artist’s films and installations.
