Fiumano Projects are delighted to be working with Italian Music Technologist and Artist, Bruno Zamborlin.
A PhD graduate from IRCAM - Centre Pompidou and Goldsmiths, University of London; Bruno is the founder of the East London-based music technology company Mogees Ltd. It was whilst he was studying for his doctorate that he began to develop ‘Mogees’, a musical instrument comprising a special vibration sensor and a software application allowing vibrations to be turned into sound.
“Hidden Frequencies”, is a journey into the possibilities of transforming everyday physical objects into musical instruments. Combining both performance and sound/music, this interactive exhibition invites the viewer to interact with objects around the gallery space, allowing them to co-create the audio world around them.
Bruno has collaborated with several internationally renowned musical artists including British Experimental Dance Music pioneers Plaid (Warp Records), Rodrigo y Gabriela, Pedro Reyes, Imogen Heap and Jean Michel Jarre.
"Between the eye and the hand of the artist a magical transformation takes place. Mogees is a technology that can turn vibrations into music. Hidden treasures are unveiled, magnified and brought to the ears of the performer, as hands freely explore the effects of a gentle caress or an unyielding impact.
Building a musical instrument is not just about creating beautiful sounds, it is also about people and what they want to achieve. “Between the conception and the creation, falls the shadow”. I did not want to offer a prescriptive tool, but something through which one may immediately hear wider musical horizons; connecting intention to sound as a medium in a dialogue between action and perception, catching inspiration as it happens."
Live Performance featuring Plaid – Tuesday 10th February 2015 at 7.30 pm:
The collaborative relationship between Plaid and Bruno extends over 3 years of live performances across Europe, the creation of the music video EL EX (Warp Records) and the Diana performable sound sculpture.
