Marco Puccini + Virgilio Villoresi _ live performance
The kinetic and visionary art of artist and filmmaker Virgilio Villoresi, a skilled manipulator of found footage and expert on the step-one technique, comes together in this live performance with the dreamy music of Mark Puccini, made of echoes of childhood that dilate in enveloping melodies. One manipulates the live image, creating a step-one animation in real time, while the other accompanies him with his soundtrack.
Villoresi is one of the most respected film makers of his generation. Winner of numerous awards and festivals, including the award P.I.V.I. (2009) and the Cartoons of Rome (2010), has collaborated with artists like Vinicio Capossela Ericailcane and staged video performances for some of the most important Italian festivals. He was also selected by “Next Exit” as one of the best talent in the 2010 yearbook “Young Blood”.
Marco Puccini, composer and sound experimenter, has worked for many years with the theatre company Krypton, and with some of the most important performers of the international scene including FrankoB and Stelarc. Puccini currently continues his search for avant-garde electronic sounds and is actively working for the sonorizations of the video productions of “The fake factory” (Milan /Florence), for RAI (Italian Television) and for commercials.
