Berio and Beyond

September 6-8, 2017

Berio and Beyond is a seminar promoted by the Department of Cultural Heritage and Environment of the University of Milan, in collaboration with the Centro Studi Luciano Berio. This event marks the beginning of a wider project conceived by Angela Ida De Benedictis, that will extend in the next stages to a wider international level. Using some works by Luciano Berio as a starting point, categories like multi-mediality and cross-mediality will be analyzed in their theoretical implications and contextualized in their historical frame. This first meeting of the seminar will take place at Palazzo Feltrinelli (Gargnano, BS), thanks to the contribution of the University of Milan (prof. Nicola Scaldaferri, coordinator).

Listening as Composition: a Colloquium with Steven Feld

March 21-22, 2017

The seminar, hosted by the University of Milan and the Conservatory of Music “G. Verdi”, will focus on some aspects of Feld’s activity, especially on the moment of listening and recording sound events to their organization through compositional processes, using recording and editing technologies. The central moment will be the listening to a 25th-anniversary concert edition of Voices of the Rainforest, newly recomposed in the 7.1 cinema surround sound format. The acousmatic concert performance in Sala Puccini (March 21, 2017 at 9 pm) will be a European premiere of this newly completed work.
