Conversation Piece

Conversation Piece was formed during the residency at the Mattatoio in Rome (May 2021).

‘Coming from different backgrounds, the three musicians’s approach to the live set is raw and immediate, sounds are played, re-sampled, then manipulated, juxtaposed and stripped of all points of reference.’

Conversation Piece is
Simone Pappalardo : Live electronics
Simone Alessandrini: Sax and electric guitar
Mauro Remiddi: Voice, modular synth.

By stretching and morphing her voice, eliminating the meaning of the text, 
I wanted to find the blind spot where language finally dissolves, calling everything into question again.
