Quiet ensemble by Fabio Di Salvo & Bernardo Vercelli

Here are some very cool artistic projects by Fabio Di Salvo & Bernardo Vercelli. Check out their Facebook Page page for more and see their upcoming events.

“Natura Morta” is a musical concert where the only instruments used are real fruits and the sound we’ll hear is exclusively the electric energy contained within them. Each fruit has acid in it that produces electrical tension, using a special technique we can boost these frequencies making the inaudible audible, the sound of the vital energy of nature. The individual fruits are raised on wooden platforms, standing on a transparent plexiglass plate lit from under. Each time a fruit plays its base will lit up, staining the surrounding space, making it changeable and dynamic. Each platform is a home made midi controller which allow us to modulate the sound wave’s, creating more complex rhythms and sounds. The sound frequencies are emphasized by a large video projection representing a macro vision of the fruits.




Quintetto is an installation based on the study of casual movement of objects or living creatures used as input for the production of sounds. The basic concept is to reveal what we call "invisible concerts" of everyday life. The vertical movements of the 5 fishes in the aquarius is captured by a video camera, that translates (through a computer software) their movements in digital sound signals.
We'll have 5 different musical instruments creating a totally unexpected live concert.




Orchestra Da Camera is a musical installation in which the 40 elements of the chamber are mais running on their wheels. Each wheel its connected to a carillon and when it turns the carillon starts playing its musical note. The great number of carillons and the random actions of the living creatures makes unrecognizable the melodies (lullabies by Brahms, Schubert and Mozart ) creating an unexpected musical carpet determined by the mice.
