PercLero (Percussion Bolero), a video

PercLero, as the very word might suggest, is a Percussion Bolero. I wrote this little piece of music in a similar way Conlon Nancarrow used to, drawing the notes on a piano roll. Here, PercuLero is played by a cheap automatic digital consort. For those of you who enjoy music theory stuff, I’ll say that PercuLero is based on a 9/4 ostinato with irregular rhythmic groupings (mostly 3, 5 e 7) over it.

In the video, I stuffed a bunch of Unleashed Sketches of mine, mixed media on several types of paper.

65 Sketches for Portraits, a Video

I have drawn, and posted on this very blog, 65 Sketches for Portraits so fat. As I have done with the 90 Brown paper Sketches, today I have stuffed this bunch of images into another video and then I have written a little piece of music to go along with. 65 Sketches for Portraits is the result, and you can watch it right here above.

Old sketch 2, The Dispossessed Moon (1) | La Luna Diseredata (1)

Old Sketch 02
Sketch for The Dspossessed Moon | Schizzo per La Luna Diseredata, 22,5×32, 1987

Doodled in Paris, 1987. It’s actually part of a series of sketches about The Dispossessed Moon – a phrase that incongruously came across my mind one night when I was climbing the stairs of a Métro underground passage near République station, in Paris. It means nothing, and I liked it.

Scarabocchiato a Parigi, 1987. Fa parte di una serie di schizzi per La Luna Diseredata – una frase che mi venne incongruamente in mente una notte mentre stavo salendo i gradini in un sottopassaggio del Métro vicino alla stazione République, a Parigi. Non significa niente, e mi piacque.
