altraconsonanza #

altraconsonanza is an improvisation collective bringing together diverse means of producing and controlling sound. Our experimental arrangement contrasts generative algorithms with analogue chaotic circuitry, complemented by environmental recordings. As disparate these instruments are, as diverse are the aesthetics they rest upon and as unequal are the modes of listening they afford. We take all these elements and patch them together; not only conceptually but physically: signals are exchanged between all involved interfaces, effectively affecting, influencing and superimposing each other. We re-compose them into an intractable field of possibilities that is navigated using the senses and the intelligence of the performers and the audience alike.

The name altraconsonanza is meant as an homage to the Italian pioneers who formed the Nuova Consonanza collective in the 1960s.

altraconsonanza is David PirrĂ² and Martin Rumori, occasionally complemented by other musicians.
