Jeudi à 12h00 : Ritmi di Milano - a sound portrait of Milan produced by Painè Cuadrelli - première contribution à Radia par www.radiopapesse.org :
« It is a pleasure to launch the series with Painè Cuadrelli and his soundwalk in Milan, the city Luciano Berio and Bruno Maderna portraied in 1954 in ’Portrait of a city’, the first electronic music piece ever recorded at the Milan’s RAI Fonology Studios (Italian Radio and Television). As the oral narration is a primary key of this soundwork, Cuadrelli’s portrait is much more about sounds and field recording ; it was produced recording sounds in the city of Milano, Italy and manipulating it into a collage of small compositions and rhythms. The show is intended as a modified soundwalk, where pieces of real-world soundscape get transformed, cut’n’pasted, mixed and remixed, becoming something else, yet keeping the original texture.
Recordings were made in main spots of the city centre : Piazza del Duomo, Duomo (inside), Triennale Museum, Teatro dell’Arte, Parco Sempione, to name a few, in differents moments of the day and night. No addictional sounds were used. »
