Andrea Belfi & Attila Faravelli, Tumble



Tumble (the name for the union of Italian composers Andrea Belfi and Attila Faravelli) creates a sound world through what they call "instant composition/improvisation." The result of this process is a chaotic as well as rational music where rhythms created by drums and electro-acoustic devices melt together with magmatic movement of sounds diffused by broken and modified speakers. Tumble is "Organic sound mass both delicate and wild, digital pulses diffused through a pile of modified woofers, sound cycles which create oneiric landscapes, primitive polyrhythms, feedbacks, pure sine waves, and tangled up patterns." Recorded March 2011 at Experimental Intermedia Foundation in New York City.

RADIO SERIES

A radio series of programs recorded at Experimental Intermedia Foundation (EI), the legendary, influential downtown New York loft venue, incubator, showcase, and community center for composers and experimenters in the arts, known for being first and best at presenting (and recording!) new music and new media since the 70s. The concert series is programmed and produced by composer Phill Niblock who has been directing presentations at Experimental Intermedia since 1973 (well over 1,000 performances) and he is the curator of EI's XI Records label. In 1993, he opened a satellite space with window gallery in Ghent, Belgium. For more on the concert series, recordings, archives, and other intermedia adventures of Phill Niblock around the globe visit the Experimental Intermedia Foundation site. This radio project is a partnership between Experimental Intermedia Foundation and The Clocktower Gallery and its radio station at ARTonAIR.org. The series is produced and managed with the generous efforts of Byron Westbrook.
