Alessandro Bosetti, in his first Chicago performance, presents solo work for voice and electronics.
He also will premiere The Listeners, a project that he will complete in the days immediately preceding his Lampo concert. For this new work, Bosetti will make video portraits of Chicagoans listening to his short compositions with headphones, after which he will destroy the music. Only the video document of people listening, and the incidental sounds they make while listening, will remain.
Alessandro Bosetti (b.1973, Milan, Italy) is a composer and sound artist. He is interested in the musicality of spoken words and unusual aspects of spoken communication, producing text-sound compositions featured in live performances, radio broadcasts and published recordings. Field research and interviews build the basis for his abstract compositions, along with electroacoustic and acoustic collages, trained and untrained instrumental practices, vocal explorations and digital manipulations. As a soprano saxophonist, he has developed an original extended technique. He lives and works in Berlin.
Organized in cooperation with the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Department of Sound
