R E S E A R C H  –  C S R  centro studi e ricerche 

CSR_logoIn 2014 I was appointed to found a Music Research structure at Bologna’s Conservatory: CSR-CentroStudi e Ricerche.
 The activity started on 2015 hosting the meeting ONNIVERSO, with RAMI, italian association for artistic and musical research.
 Then we realized “CAMINAR“, dedicated to the music and the life of Luigi Nono, with guests as Enzo Porta, Giancarlo Schiaffini, Maddalena Novati and Gianni Di Capua. The concerts were part of “Resistenza Illuminata”, a wide series of concerts organized by the municipality of Bologna and its Teatro Comunale as an hommage to Luigi Nono.
 Meanwhile a proper space has been dedicated to CSR at the Conservatorio G. B. Martini, Bologna. The space has been equipped with some basic furnitures and electronic devices as mixer, nearfield loudspeakers, audio interface, two desktop computers iMac 27″, storage devices and softwares.
In 2016 CSR collaborated with AngelicaFestival and INCROCIlab, to realize Conduction e Chimiche Acustiche, as a co-production with Conservatorio G. B. Martini and “HappyBirthdayMrReich“.
On 2017 and 2018 CSR continue the work with INCROCIlab for the project “-TN+, Incroci laboratorio TecNologico” and Centro di Ricerca Musicale San Leonardo in Bologna, working with Alvin Curran for his new  composition “A BANDA LARGA” at AngelicaFestival 2018.

INCROCI, “crossing”, is a laboratory I hold with colleague and Guitarist Walter Zanetti.
