A journey into the music of Charles Mingus, told and directed by the double bass player Silvia Bolognesi and the sound of her Fonterossa Open Orchestra.
Fonterossa Open Orchestra is a large ensemble made up of 33 elements including professional and non-professional musicians. The project develops from the workshops dedicated to improvisation and the study of “unconventional” scores that the composer, arranger and double bass player has held since 2016.
The initial objective of the orchestra was to involve emerging musicians, with particular attention to students of music schools and conservatories, creating a shared space dedicated to experimentation and the search for a collective sound based on the use of “conduction”, a system of signs and gestures used to construct a real-time musical arrangement or composition.
