Merkur by Roberto Paci Dalò [at Vienna + online]

rpd1.jpgMerkur by Roberto Paci Dalò :: Live from Studio RP4, ORF Funkhaus Wien :: Broadcast in 5.1 Surround Sound :: December 6, 2009; 11:03 – 11:45 pm (CET) :: live streaming; shortwave broadcasting.

A performance based on the invisible architecture of sound and electric dust. A farewell dealing with the space through resonance, reverbs, echoes. A chemical laboratory where thin acoustical textures are developed through revolving layers and abstract forms. Moving on the threshold between broken melodies (coming in part from John Dowland’s vocal fragments), loops, soundscapes, and noise.

Some of the Merkur’s materials have been developed by Roberto Paci Dalò and Alexandra Purcaru through a residency at Hotel Pupik (Austria) during Summer 2009 and premiered in New York at Experimental Intermedia (October 09). Continue reading
