In his U.S. debut, Valerio Tricoli performs Take Thy Horoscope and Walk, a multi-sensorial experience created for Lampo—live musique concrète (Revox reel-to-reel as sampler, and other analog electronics) and strobe lights.
Tricoli likes to mess with audience perception, suddenly moving its attention, in his words, “from the ‘here & now’ to the ‘somewhere else.’” His work has a stunning sense of location and movement. Here, he uses the Lampo quad system as well as a thrift store speaker placed on the ceiling.
Valerio Tricoli (b.1977, Palermo, Italy) is an electroacoustic composer, radical improviser, sound engineer and concert organizer. He is one of the founders of the Bowindo collective and the band 3/4HadBeenEliminated, a synthesis between improvisation, electroacoustic composition and avant-rock sensitivity. Formerly one of the leading figures of the Bolognese scene, he is currently based in Berlin.
