Here comes the percussions !

Written by

The entire frame of REKA, composed of a huge organic of performers is held within a frame created by 2 virtuoso percussions players, the Italian soloists Simone Beneventi and Lorenzo Colombo. Both of them are dear colleagues with whom I've worked in the past (Lorenzo played in my icon-sonic symphony OTOT and my solo percussions Utopie and both had performed in my Opera "Noise for Syd"), and now are taking this not simple challenge with great dedication. Simone had also invented 2 sets of multi functional mallets, which he calls the "REKA mallets" !

Unesco's Low voices of Bitti

Written by

Omar Bandinu, the Bassu (low) singer of the renowned vocal ensemble Tenores di Bitti Mialinu Pira is a unique figure of the Sardinian culture. The musical style of "Canto a Tenores" is a part of Unesco's intangible treasures of humanity and his group is the main ambassador of this musical style, defined also as a pure polyphony of timbers. Omar is also a talented piano player, a musicologist, an electronic musician and an eager researcher of the Sardinian culture. With Omar we speak always in two levels - in the  traditional context and in the universal level of creativity. Omar feel's this project unites of these aspects, and I'm happy about it.

In few days the rehearsals of REKA will start.

Working, working working on REKA

Written by

Conducting in two is far more complex than conducting in one...especially when the major part of the performers don't read musical scores :)

Me and Dario are really getting into this project into the vains

WORLD PREMIERE :
16/09/2014 - MiTo SettembreMusica Festival, Milan, Italy

studying REKA & eating Ushpalo with Sofia Kaikov

Written by

Sofia & Jasek Kaikov are a little confused in the beginning when they view Sofia's score. Little by little we get to work. A lot of things connected to the Bukharian tradition, many new things that we need to find. But at the same time I am not only a composer working with a soloist on a score but also a guest. And aguest in the Bukharian tradition needs to eat - and to eat a lot !

Even though I come from Milan, Sofia treats me as if I haven't eaten for 2 years - and for the first time I try the magical Bukharian "Ushpilau" (rice with carrots & meat that you eat strictly with hands). At the same time, we choose an amazing exile song for an important section in the opera. There is such an beautiful connection between emotion, life and art in this culture. So, great music & Great food. Sometimes my life is really quite nice !
