Great to be in the highlight of Where Magazine Milan with Alma Mater ! www.almamater.info
"The must-visit multimedia art project by artist and composer Yuval Avital ends today in the huge Cathedral space of Fabbrica del Vapore. The project, entitled “Alma Mater”, includes a forest of 140 loudspeakers with the voices of grandmothers from all over the world singing lullabies and traditional songs intertwined with seismographic sounds of the earth.
Woven into the heart of the piece will be a new version of ‘Il Terzo Paradiso’ by renowned artist Michelangelo Pistoletto. Screenings of former La Scala étoiles Liliana Cosi and Oriella Dorella and a magical site-specific light design by Enzo Catellani enrich the work. The event will be further enhanced by performances by international and local artists, exhibitions and workshops."
From July 8th till August 29th 2015 Alma Mater, my next creation, in dialogue with Il Terzo Paradiso by Michelangelo Pistoletto, will fire up the Cattedrale building of #FabbricadelVapore in Milan. More on www.almamater.info
World premiere of Horizon & Siren for alto saxophone & viola is coming soon! 14 July in Festival Cantiere Internazionale d'Arte di Montepulciano, Italy with wonderful Michele Selva & Maurizio Barbetti.
Finally two videos from my Guitar Monologues for Electric guitar, live electronics & 6 digital automates.For some time I had the feeling that while exploring and studying traditions, classical and contemporary music, sound, noise and multimedia, I am avoiding the widest modern use of electronic music - BEAT and DRONE, found in Rave, Techno, Jungle and similar genres. In my "Guitar monologues" I had created 6 digital automas (programed in Max/Msp) which use these elements.
Coming soon, in Milan's foremost art foundry FONDERIA BATTAGLIA, hosting my dear friend and musical collaborator Giovanni Cospito.
