Moonbird


Moonbird is a video opera, an hybrid piece that blends cinema, videoart and music.
With the direction by visual artist and film director Ra di Martino.
Original libretto & music by Mauro Remiddi 
With Silvia Calderoni & Manfredi Beninati.

The piece is exhibited in different contexts: as a live performance with live music & video projections; as a video art work to be shown in exhibitions (now showing at Merzt Foundation in Palermo & Bologna’s Museum Of Modern Art  ‘MAMBO’).

The live performance ‘Moonbird Variations’ is an immersive and contemporary opera piece where the music brings together neo-Baroque themes and abstract electronics with drum machines and voice manipulation.

The projections and the music will lead us in a journey through the story of Moonbird, an honiric creature that appears and hanimates the villa of a man that decided to cut all ties with the outside world.


The album MOONBIRD is out now!

MASMAS

MASMAS is the new project of Mauro Remiddi, Simone Pappalardo & Simone Alessandrini.
They met during a 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.

Simone Pappalardo      Live electronics
Simone Alessandrini    Sax and electric guitar
Mauro Remiddi              Voice, Modular synth.

I had the desire to hear Maria Callas voice out of its natural contest.

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.

Crestline Morning Improvisation


I lived in Crestline (California) for a year and inspired by the stunning panorama one morning I decided to set up my instruments on the deck to film my modular synth/organ improvisations.
