Paolo Ingrosso, who published for Miraloop Diamonds the guitar masterpiece “Stars and Comets”, continues his tour with the poet Alessandro De Francesco going to Ausland, Berlin, to perform “Ridefinizione” at the ”Printemps des Poètes-Festival”.
Something about the performance:
“The texts of Ridefinizione have been originally written in Italian by Alessandro and are now published in five languages in some 15 internationally renowned poetry reviews. In STEIM sessions the texts have been recorded (Shure condenser microphone, Fireface 800 audio
hardware on Macintosh) live by Alessandro, Paolo and the Dutch artist Vincent W. J. van Gerven Oei, then processed by Paolo on a Max/MSP patch. This patch, conventionally called “pattern gate”, has been developed and implemented by Paolo specifically for Alessandro’s voice and way of reading. The purpose was to enhance the semantics of the
texts trying to produce an advanced poetry–voice–machine live interaction device. This procedure is far away from “sound poetry” tradition, since the texts were previously written not to be performed. Moreover, Alessandro’s reading and Paolo’s treatments have to be conceived as a reading environment instead of a performance, that is to say an audio environment where the perception of poetry is the main aspect, much more than the performers themselves.”
