On Sunday, October 22, 2023, at 6:00 PM, in the Ghislieri Hall at the Ex-Oratory of Santa Croce in Mondovì (3 Francesco Gallo Street), Fondazione CRC is organizing the concert “Farewell to the ‘900” performed by the industrial music group, Officine Schwartz. This event pays homage to Pablo Picasso and the artist Cesare Peverelli, a connoisseur of experimental music, in conjunction with the exhibition dedicated to them, titled “Cesare Peverelli. Ceramics in Vallauris. Avec Pablo Picasso,” which is open at the Museum of Ceramics in Mondovì (Palazzo Fauzone di Germagnano) until November 5. Admission to the concert is free and open to the public, with recommended registration on Eventbrite.
Officine Schwartz presents some sonorous and visionary compositions as a farewell to the ‘900, encompassing a century of acoustic, electronic, and noisy sounds, as well as cultivated, popular, and experimental musical styles. The concert’s instrumentation includes a grand piano, self-constructed string and percussion instruments, various metals, glass bells, vintage analog drums and synthesizers from the 1970s, and an electric guitar with unconventional effects. These sonorous compositions swiftly traverse the century, spanning across Europe and beyond, touching upon specific moments in history, culture, and everyday life. A significant portion of the performance features previously unreleased material.
