Atlas of Uncertainty

Electronic Language International Festival

“Atlas of Uncertainty” is an experimental music video based on the representation of 4 Classical elements, that typically refer to the concepts in Ancient Greece of water, fire, earth and aether, which were proposed to explain the nature and complexity of all matter in terms of simpler substances. The music that accompanies this computer generated video is a sonic continuum ranging from unaltered natural sounds to entirely new sounds – or, more poetically — from the real world to the realm of the imagination. Heterogeneous sound materials are explored through various techniques. The sounds and the images are here combined in well- identifiable gestures.

Experimental software for audio and video were used Csound; MAX MSP; JITTER +MAX 3D.

His work revolves around research processes and combination of experimental video and experimental music. He holds a degree in Electroacoustic Composition and Sound Technology with top marks at “ Giuseppe Verdi” Conservatory, in Milan, and a degree as a sound engineer. He’s actually completing a Master course in composition at Lugano Conservatoire. He is interested in programming languages applied to audio and video; has written music for films, short films and video installations. He’s been finalist in some international composition and video competitions. Some of his articles were published by Università di Venezia and Cambridge Scholars Publishing Ways Ahead: Proceedings of the First International Csound Conference Yonsei University; Plymouth University; TU Berlin; Università di Torino.
