The Goodness Factory
Vittorio Cosma directs an improvised happening (with Bolla, Enrico Gabrielli and Frenetik) which places music at its centres, enabling the audience to gain direct experience of the creative mechanisms of musical composition. Produced by The Goodness Factory and Music Production, Open Machine is a groundbreaking proposition in the Italian contemporary music landscape. Open Machine is much more than a performance: it’s a tangible intervention, which contributes to reconnecting music to its experimental and cultural dimensions. The musicians participating in performance meet in the dark, while the audience becomes immersed in an authentic moment of artistic creation.
Born in Varese in 1965, Vittorio Cosma is an italian keyboardist, composer and music producer. He has collaborated with the most important Italian artists, from Fabrizio De Andrè to PFM, from Elio e le storie tese to Fiorella Mannoia. He has created events, invented and participated in the creation of music festivals, participated in and written TV and radio programs, conducted orchestras in several editions of the Sanremo Festival and the Primo Maggio Concert, created many soundtracks for films and commercials, also collaborating with Oscar-winning director Gabriele Salvatores for Italy in a day.
In Turin since 2014 The Goodness Factory is a space – intellectual and physical – for the promotion of artistic activities, the production and communication of cultural events and the dissemination of new languages. It’s a crossroads of very different experiences, a real and applied network, a demonstration of collective intelligence.
