LA NATURA DELLE COSE AMA CELARSI – STEFANO DE PONTI

La natura delle cose ama celarsi (The nature of things loves to hide) is a research path in perpetual becoming started in 2019, through which I investigate the concept of content dispersion as a direct consequence of contemporary media collapse, facing the dynamics of massification and the accumulation of processes of creation and fruition, placed in relation with the inevitable impermanence that unites everything. The poetic imagery and material peculiarities of Pietra Serena – a gray-blue sandstone used extensively in Renaissance Florence – form the backdrop to a multi-media transient fresco, where planning and the randomness of events cohexist, in which process and work overlap until they merge.

OPPORTUNISM – BRYAN SCHUESSLER

Opportunism was recorded off and on approximately between 2019-2021. The album consists of primarily of sounds captured while working in a lab. Bryan is a behavioral neuroscience graduate student at the University of Washington in Seattle, where he studies the neurobiology of fear, anxiety and decision-making. The name of the album is intended to reflect the means in which it was recorded; opportunistically while working or during brief periods of respite in between work.

BUR STING BREA K’R – CLOUD CIRCUIT

Cloud Circuit is Deanna Radford (poetry) and Jeremy Young (electronics.) The Cloud Circuit Ensemble includes Philippe Vandal (saxophone) and Alexandre St-Onge (bass & laptop.)

This project is inspired by the failures of communication technologies as they are tied to human experiences of communication. All efforts are put in place to transport the listener into the grey areas of connection; a space where de-synchronized signals, dropped data packets, repetition and/or deterioration of information is observed.
