SosPuppos (i Lattanti), 2006, HD video projection, dur. 15' 34", music&sound design Enrico Ascoli, supported by Rijksakademie van beeldende kunsten di Amsterdam
Based on the novel Pesci grossi, pesci piccoli (Italo Calvino, I Racconti, ed. Mondadori), Sos puppos is the story of a woman that can’t stop crying, of a young boy that discovering her, finds himself fascinated by her size and her vulnerability, of an underwater word imense and full of analogies with the human one, where fishes live, all life long, with the signs of their hurt. The interior path of the woman through the discovery of the fishes’s secrets, allows her, in the end, to get out of her passiveness and physical immobility. Touching and creating a game with the octopus, symbol of the black stain devouring her, her body gets free and almost melt through an open dialogue with her pain.
The film is an outline of a multiplicity of events, effects, necessary accidents and turning points composing the unique and necessary puzzle of an inner path.
Sos puppos, liberamente tratto dal racconto Pesci grossi, pesci piccoli di Italo Calvino: il corpo giunonico di una donna, modellato dalle solide ombreggiature dei volumi, è reso fragilissimo da un dolore lacerante che soltanto la leggiadra curiosità di un bambino e la vista dei pesci che continuano a vivere nell’acqua limpida portando su di sé cicatrici dei colpi inferti loro dalla vita placherà il suo dolore.
Unexepected Tucano, first Brindisi Paradiso album, is a calibrate mixture of improvisation, and fine and minute editing; an intense dialog with sound. The soundtrack are open to any possible change, sums of ideas or sudden jumps to other landscapes and solutions. The sound sources are sampled from everyday life’s gifts, processed with different synthesis techniques and structured in fine and poetic expressions, then stretched through sensual rhythms and open windows on unexpected and parallel worlds.
The two musicians tend to define Brindisi Paradiso as a ‘noisy street mixed at the long silences between the lovers words’
Exotic Dirty is the keyword of Brindisi Paradiso project.
Brindisi Paradiso was born during a fortuitous live jam-session in Amsterdam between dj and eccletic performer Marco Foresta and composer and sound designer Enrico Ascoli.
The project preserves all the fresh features of that starting point: a strong musical spontaneity and aleatory combined with a wide range of inspirational references (jazz, tango, funk, hip hop, glitch, dub, folk music).
