The Third Reich, a record by Xong Collection

Romeo Castellucci – Scott Gibbons
November 6 2022, 5.30pm
Free admission
Xing presents the new LP The Third Reich, by Romeo Castellucci—Triennale's Grand Invité—and Scott Gibbons, the fourth release in the Xong: dischi d'artista series. The record —linked to the Cesena-based artist's show of the same name—is released on white vinyl, in 400 numbered copies and accompanied by an insert that collects, on a long strip of black paper, the flow of words projected on screen in the live work, for which Gibbons curated the sound system. The collector's editions are each accompanied by a visual artwork signed by Castellucci (25 unique pieces).A moment of meeting and listening with Triennale's Grand Invité and Silvia Fanti (Xing) that traverses the U.S. sound artist's production starting with the new record.
Director, creator of sets, lights and costumes, Romeo Castellucci is known worldwide for creating a language based on the totality of the arts and aimed at an integral perception of the work. The artist's works-active since the early 1980s-have been presented and produced by the most important international theaters and festivals, in more than sixty countries spanning all continents. He has been director of the Theater Section of the Venice Biennale, artiste associé at the Avignon Festival and guest director at the Schaubhüne in Berlin. A member of the Accadémie Royale de Belgique, Castellucci received the Golden Lion for Lifetime Achievement at the Venice Biennale and an honorary degree from the University of Bologna. A recipient of the title of Chevalier de l'Ordre des Arts et des Lettres of the French Republic, among his many prestigious awards and honors the artist has also won two Golden Mask for opera.
Born in the United States in 1969, Scott Gibbons is a composer and performer of electroacoustic music, a seminal figure in dark ambient and micromusic. Active for more than 30 years in the field of sound experimentation, he moves on a double track between organic sources and technical potential. Starting from the study of frequencies, he searches for sounds extracted from the depths of matter, capturing their emergence from the surfaces of things, volumes and the most hidden movements (rocks, fires, paper, air), between molecular and cosmic planes. The artist's creations—which have also appeared at the Swiss National Exhibition, the ARS Electronica Festival and the Louvre—demonstrate a keen balance between delicacy and physicality, often relying on frequencies at the most extreme limits of human hearing. He has created many unique electronic instruments and is celebrated for his live performances. The author's first album-Field Notes (1999)—was selected among the best albums of the year by the prestigious All-Music Guide. Gibbons has also created work for large-scale events, such as sound accompaniment for large fireworks shows.
