PIPPO LIONNI : SPACKLE KNIFE PAINTING SOUNDS AND PIANO
SERGIO CORBINI : PIANO, SYNTHESIZER AND ELECTRONICS
STEFANO FRANCESCHINI : SOPRANO AND BARITONE SAXOPHONES AND ELECTRONICS.
ACTIONREACTION 1 is an interactive project at the conjunction between the abstract painting of Pippo Lionni and the contemporary music of Sergio Corbini and Stefano Franceschini.
On the floor of the studio, Lionni uses spackle knives to paint large scale black and white canvasses. The recorded sounds of the painting process structure the acoustic and electronic works that Corbini and Franceschini are composing while reading the abstract forms of the painting as if a musical score. The creative process continues when the composed music fills the studio energizing the next painting session in the cycle. Each final composition is a stratification of paint and sound layers.
Thus, while the creative process is constantly evolving, the basic idea is that the painting has both a visual and audio form, and musical composition is at the same time influencing and being influenced by the painting - giving the name ACTIONREACTION.
The record ACTIONREACTION 1 brings together 7 unique pieces created in 2016 in Chianti Italy.
