Massimo Falascone
Works 05-007-2008
2008, Setola di Maiale SM 1340


Ottovolante (6:58)
Distance collaboration with Bob Marsh (violin, voice and electronics) from San Francisco, California, for the project
Eight which involves musicians all over the world. Bob wrote to me at the end of October 2007:
"Hi Massimo,
I thought perhaps you would like to participate in a new project of mine. I am asking several people to each work on a long distance duet collaboration by reacting to an eight minute collection of sounds I made. [...] You can add, subtract, multiply or divide them, and do anything else you want to them and with them. Anything you do is fine with me. Have fun!"

Ottovolante is my composition: I cut, edited, treated, transformed Bob Marsh's samples; I added plug-ins, introduced a bass line and finally refined the whole thing with persuading alto saxophone intromissions.
I had fun.
(So did Bob, it seems: "Bravo! I love it! The down to earth humor in the face of an ultimate interstellar assault. Great twists and variations. Most excellent.")

Orpheus (5:30)
Piece composed for the final act ballet of Orfeo 400, a multi-discipline event of performing arts where the public is led to 10 visual, audio and physical installations along a compulsory route in the different spaces of Teatro San Domenico in Crema, on April 14th 2007 in the evening.

Improvisation for baritone saxophone and loop sampler. Instant cloning of replicating baritone saxophones. Recorded on June 29th 2008.

The supporting frame of this piece was composed in spring 2007 for the homonimous installation in Orfeo 400. The recipe of Pasta alla Norma and the necessary suspensions of a distortion-oriented alto saxophone completed the sequence on June 28th 2008.

Composition by Roscoe Mitchell.
Recorded on June 29th 2008.

All compositions (one excluded) and improvisations are by Massimo Falascone, along with recordings, mixing and editing performed at Mumacs Home-Studio somewhere in Milan.

Ottovolante (6:58)
Collaborazione a distanza con Bob Marsh (violino, voce ed elettronica) da San Francisco, California, per il progetto Eight che coinvolge vari musicisti in tutto il mondo.
Bob mi scrisse a fine Ottobre 2007:
"Hi Massimo,
I thought perhaps you would like to participate in a new project of mine. I am asking several people to each work on a long distance duet collaboration by reacting to an eight minute collection of sounds I made. [...] You can add, subtract, multiply or divide them, and do anything else you want to them and with them. Anything you do is fine with me. Have fun!"

Ottovolante è la mia composizione: ho tagliato, montato, trattato, trasformato i frammenti sonori di Bob Marsh; ho aggiunto plug-ins, introdotto una linea di basso e rifinito con persuasive intromissioni di sax contralto.
Mi sono divertito.
(Anche Bob, sembra: "Bravo! I love it! The down to earth humor in the face of an ultimate interstellar assault. Great twists and variations. Most excellent.")

Brano scritto per il balletto atto finale di Orfeo 400, evento multidisciplinare d'arte e spettacolo in cui il pubblico viene condotto, seguendo un passaggio obbligato, attraverso 10 installazioni visive, sonore e sensoriali, negli spazi del Teatro San Domenico di Crema, la sera del 14 Aprile 2007.

Lavamipasta (12:50)
La struttura portante di questo brano è stata composta nella primavera del 2007 per l'omonima installazione in Orfeo 400. La ricetta della Pasta alla Norma e le necessarie sospensioni di un sax contralto disposto alla distorsione hanno completato la sequenza il 28 Giugno 2008.

Ericka (3:38)
Composizione di Roscoe Mitchell.
Registrato il 29 Giugno 2008.

Tutte le composizioni (tranne una) e le improvvisazioni sono di Massimo Falascone, insieme alle registrazioni, il mixaggio e il montaggio, eseguiti al Mumacs Home-Studio, da qualche parte, a Milano.
