By Rodrigo  //  Performances  //  2 Comments

Next month we have OUR TENTH BIRTHDAY YEAH!! We’re preparing some special presents for those of you who turn up on Thursday 8th June (note: it is election day, and if you’ve voted Tory I won’t let you in). We’ll be starting at the earlier time of 8pm to fit in a series of short guest sets throughout the night, in addition to the evening’s special guest Luigi Marino. And the usual hat jams of course.

Guest sets from:

findlay_hunter_rennie (Kate Findlay, Anton Hunter, Tullis Rennie)

Constanzo/Tremblay (Rodrigo Constanzo, Pierre Alexandre Tremblay, (plus a special guest?))

Luigi Marino is a musician native to Rome. His recent work has focused on interactive systems able to create interactions between an extemporary performer-driven source and a computer, with particular attention to how intuitive decisions can profoundly affect predetermined structures. He is also an active improvisor performing on both electronic media and percussion, especially zarb and bowed custom cymbals.
He holds a BA in arts and philosophy from University of Rome Tor Vergata, and an MFA in electronic music from Mills College, where he studied with Roscoe Mitchell, John Bischoff, and Chris Brown. He studied zarb with Mohssen Kasirossafar.
He is the recipent of many awards such as the full teaching assistantship at the Center of Contemporary Music at Mills College, the Paul Merritt Henry Prize, and the doctoral grant from the Arts and Humanities Research Council (UK).
His music has been presented at festivals such as the San Francisco Tape Music Festival, Intonal Festival (Malmö), Seoul International Computer Music Festival, Acousmatic for the People (Malmö), ICMC (Athens), Sincronie (Milan). As a performer, he played at venues such as Rainforest World Music Festival (Kuching, Malaysia), Galleria Nazionale d’Arte Moderna (Rome), Offene Ohren (Munich), WIM (Zurich), ImprovvisaMente (Lodi), Teatro Ca’ Foscari (Venice), Spektrum (Berlin), Blutopia (Rome), Spazio O’ (Milan).
He currently lives in the UK, pursuing a joint PhD at University of Birmingham and De Montfort University.
