Salford Sonic Fusion Festival presents an evening of performances from Loscil and Roberto Fabbriciani at the University of Salford's Digital Performance Laboratory at MediaCityUK. The purpose built experimental performance space combines the technology of a TV Studio with the excitement of live theatre and visual immersive cinema and provides an intimate venue for this very special performance. Tickets are limited to 100.
The serene ambient compositions of Loscil come courtesy of Vancouver-based musician Scott Morgan. Taking his moniker from the “looping oscillator” function in the computer music language Csound, Morgan uses custom made Max for Live devices and the occasional live instrument to build robust, droning soundscapes. One of Kranky records longest standing artists, Morgan influences range from krautrock pioneers Cluster, minimalist composer Gavin Bryars, and film music composition.
"Massive abstract shapes serenely, quietly cut across rippling rhythmic patterns, distant fog horn like sonorities ricocheting across the bay with the noirish, North Western elegance of a Badalamenti theme for Twin Peaks." - boomkat.com
Roberto Fabbriciani performing
"Maderna and new routes of the flute in the second '900"
In many respects Roberto Fabbriciani reinvented the flute during the latter part of the 20th and into the early part of our current century, through personal research into the instrument’s sonorous possibilities. He is most noted for his work with Luigi Nono, Luciano Berio, Salvatore Sciarrino, Karlheinz Stockhausen and John Cage. He worked for many years with Luigi Nono, in the experimental studio of the SWF in Freiburg, blazing new and unusual trails in music.
This evening Fabbriciani will be performing "Maderna and new routes of the flute in the second '900 " including compositions for flute by Bruno Maderna, Andrea Mannucci and works composed by the artist himself.
Fabbriciani will be hosting a masterclass where he will explore elements from his performance on Saturday 23 March
