Double bill with 2 Italian electroacoustic composers presenting their last releases on The Tapeworm (http://www.tapeworm.org.uk/ )
Laura Agnusdei is an electroacoustic composer and saxophone player from Bologna (IT), classically trained, she also holds a Master in electronic music composition by The Institute of Sonology of The Hague (NL). Her compositions feature the saxophone as the main voice within sonic landscapes that shift between melodies and textures, the song form and improvisation, fusing acoustic, digital and analog sound sources. Laura is actually touring presenting her new album 'Laurisilva', six tracks that invite the listeners to explore an imaginary landscape made from sounds growing and layering like biological organisms within a forest. This work, as well as Laura's debut cassette 'Night/Lights', was released by London-based label The Tapeworm (more specifically on the their non-tape collection The Wormhole). Since 2016 her music has been presented in many venues and festivals such as Rewire, Dekmantel, EYE Filmmuseum (NL), Cafè Oto (UK), Node, Macao, MAST (IT).
Davide Luciani is an Italian electronic music composer and media designer, based in Berlin since 2011. He has a background in the Italian noise-rock scene with projects dating back to 2005. “Calming Counts” is Luciani’s first solo release released for The Tapeworm. His solo practice places acoustic instrumentation into analogue/digital synthesis to create works that bridge the territories of noise, drone rock and minimal music. His approach to electroacoustic music – which he voices with guitar, piano, strings, accordion, synthesisers, VST sorcery and loopers – has a distinct harmonic hue, with layered repetitive patterns and instrumental polyphonies. As sound and visual designer he has directed and curated a wide variety of projects from soundtracks to space design. His collaborations have been hosted at highly regarded institutions and venues such as Venice Biennial, Berlin Atonal, Ström Festival, Bayreuth Festspiele, Museum Omero, Tresor and MUSMA.
He played as opening act for artists such as Eli Keszler, Rashad Becker, Jan Werner, Marta De Pascalis amongst others. Luciani was a member of the label/platform Dromoscope and has collaborated with Grün (Daniele de Santis) and Claudio Rocchetti. In 2014, together with sound artist Fabio Perletta, he co-founded Mote, a multidisciplinary design studio whose practice addresses arts and music.
