Walter Branchi



Called a spiritual idealist, the Italian composer creates ambient music without borders that grows from the space and time of the moment and aspires to be inseparable from it. Recorded at the Experimental Intermedia Foundation loft in lower Manhattan on March 14, 2013.

About his work, Walter Branchi writes:

I think of music in a systemic way; I think of my music as a single, great composition formed of parts that can be performed separately but are not isolated from one another; I think of my music as a whole (as an “Intero”), which will take my entire life to compose and which will never be completed; “Un grande canto,” where every part includes the whole and is included by it; what I am going to present tonight are three recent parts of Intero -  In memoriam György Ligeti - Sensibile - Behold.; and a time lapse video: Blue Mountain Lake that Kristin Jones has been working on that is set to my music.

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.
