THE CALL WITHIN

Tigran Hamasyan – Piano / Vocals
Marc Karapetian – Bass
Arthur Hnatek – Drums

The Armenian pianist Tigran Hamasyan is without doubt one of the greatest contemporary global talents, displaying remarkable pianistic ability and a profound compositional sensibility. He is equally at home with jazz, classical, rock and Armenian sacred music. Tigran’s childhood was characterised by the numerous challenges thrown up by the war between Armenia and Azerbaijan. During that period in fact, electricity was frequently unavailable in homes, but Tigran’s mother nonetheless managed to encourage him to study piano. He is now known throughout the world, above all for his talent for improvisation and his ability to “feel” the music and to transport the public to another dimension.

VIII EDITION

The returning international festival devoted to audiovisual art and electronic music founded in 2014 will incorporate the spirit of research and investigation of the local area that was such a feature of Before and After, the special edition conceived for 2020. The traditional experimental nature of Nextones will be to the fore during the day with activities and performances exploring the local territory and valorizing some of the most beautiful features of the Ossola valleys, while in the evening the Teatro Natura will be the setting for some of the most interesting audio/video shows of the 2021 European season.

THE END OF THE WORLD

LUBOMYR MELNYK piano
JULIA KENT cello
SPIME.IM visual art, sound designer and electronic music

https://www.theendoftheworld.eu

The End of the World is a multimeida performace featuring the Ukrainian pianist Lubomyr Melnyc, aka the Prophet of Piano and the creator of continuous music, an uninterupted flow of incredibly rapid notes, the innovative Canadian cellist Julia Kent and the Turin collective Spime.IM

The score, as the title suggests, describes the ecological and environmental disaster facing the planet Earth due to the stubbornly misguided actions of mankind. In order to obtain the maximum dramatic impact, this work has been conceived as an immersive multimedia performance with musicians playing classical instruments such as the piano and cello and digital artists playing via wearable controllers (custom glove-synthesizers developed by our partner Remidi) that create audiovisual interaction between the sound and images.

The video contents are based on a big data archive associated with the on-going climate change and environmental events.

Sound Engineer: Maurizio Borgna
Data curation: Elisa Bernardoni

Produced by Nextones, Superbudda, Basemental, LEV Festival, Museo Serralves Oporto, Snaporazverein.

AWARENESS CAMPUS

Practicing the awareness of nature

Curated by Gabriele Vacis and the Institute of Theatrical Practices for Personal Wellness

Today, there are many more people doing theatre and dancing, than going to see theatre and dance.Many artists therefore no longer perceive social action as a civic action or a benevolent bestowment.The great masters of the 20th century inspired these paths in theatre.
The involvement of the citizen, the person, in artistic work is now integrated in the artistic philosophy of many actors, playwrights and directors. Art is no longer simply the creation of forms but also of interaction.” Gabriele Vacis

WHO IS IT FOR?

The course is aimed at educators, actors, social workers, teachers, psychologists, musicians, dancers, medical and health staff, singers and all those people with jobs involving contact with groups of people who choose to use the instrument of theatre in both the artistic and social spheres.

THE SEMINAR

This practical seminar focuses on the importance of INCLUSIVE THEATRE; that is, theatre as an opportunity for INTEGRATION, SHARING and COHESION. Participants will experience the method developed by the Institute of Theatrical Practices for Personal Wellness that is based on the constant and rigorous exercise of AWARENESS and ATTENTION, on SHARED BREATH (the COHORT), an articulated instrument for the construction of one’s presence and a way of reflecting on space and on relationships, on the body listening to other bodies to create common actions.

OBJECTIVES

The principal objectives are found within the training work conducted by Vacis at the Institute of Theatrical Practices for Personal Wellness, among the motivations for which is the use of theatre as an opportunity for inclusion, integration and sharing. The primary objective is, above all, the ability to live in a state of awareness in relation to others, on stage and in everyday life.

It is not only actors who need profound awareness of themselves and others: all need that same awareness. Theatrical techniques have always contributed to personal wellness. In classical Greece, the tragedy was the place the community came together. Theatrical practices support sociality, medicine and education. Underlying these human necessities there is, in fact, always the ability to BE. To consciously inhabit one’s time and one’s space. Independently or in relation to other human beings.

RIVERBERI JAZZ


CORRESPONDENCE

GIANLUCA PETRELLA AND PASQUALE MIRRA
Trombone, electronics, vibraphone and percussion.

10:00 PM

An atypical duo presenting a balancing act of melody, rhythm, harmony and electronics.

The desire and the curiosity of both to explore with a lightness of touch diverse musical territories in which they can linger and create together a new path to be followed, allowing the music to show the way thanks to the special understanding between the two remarkable musicians.

WAIKIKI

Contemporary Quartet

9:00 PM

The group composed of Davide Merlino, Andrea Cocco, Alessandro dell’Aglio and Davide Broggini is essentially a classic percussion quartet, but one quite happy to use electronics and synths during their live shows. The Waikiki repertoire focuses on compositions written in the third millennium, some of which originals by the group, others by musicians such as Philip Glass, John Psathas and David Skidmore.

RIVERBERI JAZZ


RITUS

DANIELE DI BONAVENTURA

21:00 PM

Ritus is a form of sonic journey that winds its way through a sequence of poignant emotive suggestions, characterised by the kind of inspirationally personal performance that derives from Daniele Di Bonaventure’s solo approach to his instrument: the bandoneon. During the concert we find ourselves caught up in the midst of a “celebratory ritual”, created by the musician’s original compositions that range from evocations of sacral chants to dance steps of a Mediterranean flavour, capturing the veiled pathos, that imperceptible melancholy that lend the themes a depth of chiaroscuro and nuance.

GONG, THE SOUND OF THE LAST ROUND

22:00 PM

LUCA AQUINO trumpet, electronics
ANTONIO JASEVOLI electric guitar
PIERPAOLO RANIERI electric bass, electronics
Special guest MANU KATCHE’ on drums and percussion
with the words and the narration of GIORGIO TERRUZZI
and the video works of MIMMO PALADINO

The trumpeter Luca Aquino recounts in music the great boxing stories: from Carnera to Muhammad Ali, passing by way of Sugar Ray Robinson, Nicolino Loche and Carlos Monzon, through to Mike Tyson. All the possible notes of jazz are required to describe the feats, the victories and even the great defeats of these legendary athletes. The music of the Luca Aquino Trio, with visuals curated by the great Mimmo Paladino, a leading figure in the Italian Transavantgarde art movement, the texts by Giorgio Terruzzi, one of the brightest and most well-known sports journalists and the drumming of the French musician Manu Katchè, succeed in shedding light on the man behind the great champion, with all his fragility, his dreams and his failures.

Six stories of boxers for six fantastic life stories in which winning or losing is of little importance when the great feat is actually managing to climb into that ring.

3 - 5 September 2021

A festival dedicated to the mountains, to nature and to life in the open air. A new format for the Fondazione Tones on the Stones that explores the issues of the relationship between man and nature, mountain culture at all latitudes and the culture of sport.

A festival that is not just for climbers or experts, but an opportunity for 360° reflection on the myriad facets of the mountains that develop around the Tones Teatro Natura spaces, our conceptual “Base Camp”, the place from which all our activities depart and where the narrative of the event unfolds.
