Friendly Takeover 4 – Stanislas Pili

A guardia di una fede OPUS 1

OPUS 1 is the first chapter of the series «A guardia di una fede» and differs from OPUS 2, which was performed at Gare du Nord in 2020.
The performer models, transforms and fuses sounds according to the processes of decomposition, distillation and sublimation typical of alchemy. The sound is treated as a «tangible» substance and filtered through percussion, liquids and objects. To extract and manipulate the sounds, the artist uses not only acoustic techniques but also electroacoustic devices such as contact microphones, hydrophones, woofers and transducers.
Before and after the performance, the bar will host two installations by sound artist Fabrizio di Salvo.


Stanislas Pili (composition and performance), Maxime Le Saux and Erwin Fonseca (technique), Fabrizio di Salvo (sound installations)
