Composition and Live Electronics Collaborative Workshop

The workshop will take place in the evocative setting of the Old Fortress of Livorno, from 16 to 22 August 2020, and is aimed at creating a performance for vocal ensemble and electronics. The concert will be held on August 22 in the galleries of the Old Fortress, and will be part of the program for the eleventh edition of the Livorno Music Festival.

The teachers of this workshop will be Stefano Gervasoni and Marco Liuni.

The program is divided into collective courses (composition, musical informatics, sound recording and diffusion techniques) and individual meetings. The final event includes a unique musical creation, of which each participant creates a section autonomously. During the realization of the projects, the participants share the tasks of computer music design and sound projection, in addition to the musical direction of the interpreters.

Each student works on an original artistic project, developed from a selection of digital reproductions of Salvador Dalì original works from the Pivetti Collection, which illustrate The Divine Comedy (permission to reproduce is kindly granted by the Pivetti family). These woodcuts are made in mixed media, watercolor with pen interventions, and were conceived at the dawn of the mystical period of Dali.

The interpreters available to students are 3 female voices: Felicita Brusoni (high soprano), Valeria Matrosova (lyric soprano), Elena Tereshchenko (mezzo soprano).
