Suono Grasso is an ambitious mini-festival that creates a new series of international events to promote the music and musicians of the Emilia-Romagna region. This time the location is London. It is a two-day event (4-5 October 2022) at Café Oto, a cult London venue. This is the line-up:

4 ottobre Café OTO

Roberto Paci Dalò + Scanner: The Maya Effect

L’artista più vicino a Rizosfera è Roberto Paci Dalò a cui ci lega una lunga frequentazione ai tempi del Maffia e una serie di collaborazioni tra cui il libro + usb card «LD10 / Ritmo,caos e uomo non-pulsato» (a cura di Obsolete Capitalism e Stefano Oliva).

A lament or lamentation is a passionate expression of grief, often in music, poetry or song form. The grief is most often born of regret, or mourning. Laments constitute some of the oldest forms of writing, and examples exist across human cultures. Lament is a sound ritual where analogue and digital sounds merge. It is a celebration of the power of sound, evoking such territories as the Jewish and Romanian doina, the Southern Italian lamentazioni, the Scottish pibroch (piobaireachd), the Albanian and Greek meditative styles and the conventional fixture of the heroine’s lament in baroque opera. These references are blended with today’s electronics and processing. Not categorisable into a specific genre or style, Lament has been described by critics as a “shamanic action” and an “unforgettable experience”.

Roberto Paci Dalò: composition, clarinet, bass clarinet, voice, live electronics

Production: Giardini Pensili, Transcultures

 5 ottobre 2022 :: 𝗥𝗢𝗕𝗘𝗥𝗧𝗢 𝗣𝗔𝗖𝗜 𝗗𝗔𝗟𝗢̀ + 𝗦𝗖𝗔𝗡𝗡𝗘𝗥: 𝗧𝗛𝗘 𝗠𝗔𝗬𝗔 𝗘𝗙𝗙𝗘𝗖𝗧

A live improvised duet that combines live electronics and bass clarinet. Restless, sensual and elegiac, the music that Paci Dalò and Scanner produce is always of the moment, captured live, so this will be a rare opportunity to hear these two long-term friends collaborate in their UK debut.

𝗦𝗖𝗔𝗡𝗡𝗘𝗥

Scanner, British artist Robin Rimbaud, has been intensely active in sonic art, producing concerts, installations and recordings since the 1980s, connecting a bewilderingly diverse array of genres. His adventures are brilliantly strange – from scoring 1,000 dancers in Trafalgar Square London for the Olympics, creating permanent soundtracks in a London house, Riga Airport and a working morgue in Paris, to scoring the world’s first VR ballet with Dutch National Ballet. He doesn’t drink alcohol, tea, coffee, or smoke and has kept a diary every day since he was 12 years old, never missing a daily entry.

𝗥𝗢𝗕𝗘𝗥𝗧𝗢 𝗣𝗔𝗖𝗜 𝗗𝗔𝗟𝗢̀

Roberto Paci Dalò music combines avant-garde, electronics, early music, improvisation and traditional music(s) in an unusual way. His work has won him international admiration from, among others, John Cage, Robert Ashley, Giya Kancheli and Aleksandr Sokurov. Clarinetist, live electronics and composer wizard Roberto has performed worldwide in collaboration with such artists as Kronos Quartet, Scanner, Julia Kent, Fred Frith, Alvin Curran, Jon Rose, Terry Riley, Tom Cora, David Moss, Fennesz, Akio Suzuki, Philip Jeck, Olga Neuwirth, Stefano Scodanibbio, Tibor Szemzö, Zahra Mani, Robert Lippok, Mouse on Mars, Tenores di Bitti and Luigi Lai. Parallel to his music work, Roberto is an established theatre director and visual artist. His radio works are an international reference in radio art. He leads the group Giardini Pensili and is the recipient of the Berliner Küsterprogramm des DAAD Fellowship, the Premio Napoli 2015 and the Q21 / MQ MuseumsQuartier Wien 2017 residency. Roberto exhibited at the Biennale di Venezia 2022. He is founding director of Usmaradio – the Research Centre for Radiophonic Studies at UNIRSM (University of the Republic of San Marino).
