SUMMER WHISPERS

LIVE EVENTS

prova

A project by Rosa Barba

Pirelli HangarBicocca presents the third edition of the summer music festival with a program conceived in connection with its exhibitions. This year, SUMMER WHISPERS is organized as part of the Public Program | Rosa Barba dedicated to the exhibition “From Source to Poem to Rhythm to Reader”. The work of Rosa Barba - mainly focused on cinema and its constitutive elements - maintains a close relation with sound and music, involving often participations of musicians. Some of these artists are invited to perform live during two evenings of concerts and performances, that will mostly take place in the outdoor spaces of Pirelli HangarBicocca.

The program for the first evening includes the American drummer Chad Taylor who will play a live version of the improvisation which sets the drumbeat for Barba's sound-and-light installation Hear, There, Where the Echoes Are (2016). The night continues with two singers whose voices featured in Rosa Barba’s film Subconscious Society (2014): New York based composer and artist David Michael DiGregorio, presenting "Songs" and French musician, known as member of Stereolab, Laetitia Sadier with her Source Ensemble.

The second night will concentrate on music projects by Barba's frequent collaborator Jan St. Werner, opening with "Glottal Wolpertinger", an installation-performance resulting in the culmination of a project running over a ten-week-period for the documenta 14 biennial Radio Program with the participation of Aaron Dessner (live) and Bryce Dessner (recorded), from the world famous rock band The National. The closing act is the duo Mouse on Mars, one of Germany’s most defining and versatile electronic music projects known for their anarchic spirit and open-ended approaches to electronics that thwart academic rigidity and identity essentialism.
