Samuele Strufaldi _ Tommaso Rosati _ Francesco Gherardi
t is a trio + 1.
Three musicians (Samuele Strufaldi _ piano, Francesco Gherardi _ tabla and Tommaso Rosati _ electronics) interact with self-constructed and programmed robots that perform music inside the piano. The research orbitates around “Time” in all its manifestations.
The perception of time as humans, the manifestation of a “mechanical time” by robots and algorithms, the interaction between different layers and time interpretations.
The musicians perform and play, interacting and improvising with the robots, using self-designed software, and a led light system that reacts and follows the performance, creating a unique stage atmosphere to picture a reflection on different physical and philosophical aspects of “time”.
