PACTAsoundZONE_logoMilano 2015-20… pactaSOUNDzone is a research path and a joint between ZONE and  PACTA dei TEATRI. We bring music on stage as a parallel sound-acting, and with the 2013 production of Aristophanes in Blue, where the acting itself was born from the score, the path naturally landed to PACTAsoundZONE.
 pactaSOUNDzone is on: FBook
 2015-16: two test events with sculptures, film, music.
 2017: starting of the first real series with Alejandro Jaraj&VLPsound, Maddalena Novati-NoMus, Piero Chianura-BigBox, M. Pisati e F. Michelazzi-Flash&Bip.
 2018: Andrea Marinelli-SecretShow; Trio Tuja Ravizza Masciocchi-Voltaire e il re flautista; ZanettiZanotti+FLASHetBIP-TWO+TWO; CignoliTremoladaCarlotto-IRIDESCENCE. Seminar activity hosting Collettivo21, Conservatorio di Piacenza and Centro attività di ricerca Conservatorio di Milano, to plan their presence on stage in 2019.
 2019: coming soon …

ZONE logo

Z O N E: an idea and an ensemble in continuous evolution that revolves around my music. I play LiveElectronics or MIDIElectricGuitar whose fingerboard, as a virtual ensemble, is crossed by the inhabitants of ZONE. These artists are among todays protagonists of contemporary thought. Skattered all over the globe, they flow through the ZONE: on stage we always are more people than audience can see. mp
