TURA present: Decibel and Lionel Marchetti (FR)
Monday, August 26

TURA present: Decibel and Lionel Marchetti (FR) take over Sewing Room on to present a selection of collaborative spatial works created over a period of 8 years. Partition Concrète will feature a selection of collaborative works. Which explore the combination of the music concrète approach to composition with live instrumental performance, resulting is a range of works that feature what Marchetti calls a ‘Partition Concrète’, a fixed media part that is diffused in the space in interesting ways, seeking to make the mechanism of the speaker invisible and the sounds they produce indiscernible from live instruments. This will be an atmospheric concert of delicate but at times surprising sounds. The recent release of a recording of these works, on Brisbane Label Room 40 last year, was named ‘a masterpeice’ in Italian music magazine ToneShift, and was listed on Nicola Orlandino’s “Best Artworks of 2018” list.
