Opening December 14th at 22.00
Friday, December 14 Aaltra presents “Not a Grid”, the new sound production of the artist Roberto Memoli. The project is a mix of ambient-noise that leaves an aggressive and fleeting sign: the continuous passing from one state to another not following a precise pattern, but following events and their progression. The project for the occasion will be presented in live audio / visual form with the support of VJ Marco Santoro.
In addition, Luca Ferraro, a young composer from Lecce. His sound research is strongly influenced by concrete music and modern electronics.
In continuity with the Light Waves installation / performance, presented last September at Porta Napoli in the frame of Circuito del Contemporaneo curated by Marco Petroni, the collective Alterazioni Video will be present before and after the concerts scheduled with two video-loops shot in Hong Kong using the same sound recording technique experimented in “Light Waves”: capture the light energy through small photovoltaic panels, exhorting the viewer to a sort of “photoacoustic” observation.
Aaltra is a (non) multi-purpose space dedicated to audiovisual research and to adventurous sound languages.
It operates from February 2018 in the Lecce area. Aaltra is a container and incubator of local impact projects through active collaboration with local, national and international artists and cultural operators.
So the main objective of the Aaltra project is to make Lecce a vital fulcrum for all experiences communications that have the sound experimentation as their common denominator
