Performance

Time-blind e Zoo Machia Disc

Caterina Barbieri/Ruben Spini e Francesco Cavaliere

October 5 2019, 7.00pm

Duration: 120’ (with intermission)
Strobes will be used during the performance

For the opening evening, two projects employing different expressive modes will be presented on the stage of Triennale Milano Teatro. Francesco Cavaliere, performer, musician and visual artist, will present a preview of his new work Zoo Machia Disc, a cycle of sound stories combining installative and choreographic elements. This will be followed by the audio-visual performance Time-blind, collaboratively created by the composer Caterina Barbieri and the visual artist Ruben Spini. The work explores the experience of ecstasy and the relationship between perception, space and time. Having been presented in high-profile international venues and platforms (Sonar, Atonal, Funkhaus, Le Gaite Lyrique, The Silver Building, Today’s Art), the project is staged for Triennale in its Italian premiere.

Francesco Cavaliere lives and works in Berlin. His artistic research combines materials and space. His works engage audiences affectively, transporting them on a journey inhabited by aural inputs and phenomena produced by imaginary voices and vitreous creatures. He is author and performer in the short audio series Gancio Cielo and, over the last decade, he has written imaginary worlds animated by his own voice and by a vast collection of sound effects that give character to his stories and settings. He has presented his work in high-profile platforms and venues in Europe (Riga International Biennale, Roskilde Festival, Manifesta Palermo, Café OTO London) and beyond (Montreal, New York, Hong Kong and Tokyo). 

Caterina Barbieri is an Italian artist whose work explores the phenomenology of perception and artificial intelligence in music through a minimalist vocabulary. Her research engages with the psychophysical effects of sound to investigate the creative potential of computation; it aims to explore processes of perception and memory, often interrogating altered states, ecstasy and hallucination. Her work has been presented in international contexts such as Atonal, Sonar, Unsound, Mutek, Primavera Sound, Barbican Centre, Philharmonie de Paris, Venice Biennale, Berghain. Her two most recent works, Patterns of Consciousness (Important Records) and Ecstatic Computation (Editions Mego), have received enthusiastic reviews from national and international critics (Fact Mag, The Wire, The Guardian, Resident Advisor). 

Ruben Spini is an interdisciplinary Italian artist based in Milan. His artistic practice researches themes of perception and communicability, which he analyses by exploring the interaction between humans and nature and by engaging with the traditions of religious poetry and information theory.
