02 MARCH 2020 LIQUID STONE TRIO – Liquid Stones – Album release on Digital Stores
The reason of the invention of this project was the need to experience new ways of expression. The experimentation involves the use of drums and voice as sound material, remixed in real time with live electronics and sound synthesis. Live electronics is considered as a third sonorous object, which is able to respond and create new bases for rhythmic perception and compositional joints. This object gives us hints for the creation of new environments which one can constantly interact with, bond to the vocal and rhythmic sounds of the drums. The compositional process is strictly related to the universe’s social and spiritual roots, just like a ritual that winds between the “cages”, the different musical genres, to set them free from their classifications; every rhythm has its own simple root, which isn’t created by humans. The voice, on the other hand, represents the first form of music that humanity has ever known and that was able to use as a tool to communicate with the others.
With communication, it developed and shaped gestures, transformed them into moves, and after that, into dances. The mixture of voice, movements, rhythm and random elaboration, gives birth to a new method, bond to nature’s behaviour and that includes everything that’s been already used, but observed from a different angle. The sound, thanks to several sound sources placed on the four sides of the stalls, will be released so that one can listen to the moving sound. Everything to make the audience feel like it’s surrounded by a sound forest, in which perceptions can change and/or activate different states of consciousness. The composition of the different parts is made by macro-structures that are free to become “something else” spontaneously; factors like the universe, planets, planet earth, mankind, spirit, conscience. The purpose is to create a connection between the “something else”, to make us think about a common wellness, together with the universe and each one of its elements, like a unique “healthy” mass.
La Nuova Sardegna
Art. LST Per il Festival Ai Confini tra Sardegna e Jazz
“Dal Jazz verso territori affini ma anche tanto lontani per il festival
allestito dall’associazione Punta Giara e guidato dalla direzione artistica
di Basilio Sulis. Concerti riusciti, domenica sera, anche se il maltempo
ha provocato incertezza fino a poche ore prima dello svolgimento.
Estremamente interessante la performance in apertura di serata.
Musica sperimentale e performativa nell’esibizione del Liquid Stone Trio
composto da Caterina Genta (voce e danza), Michele Uccheddu
(percussioni) e da Emanuele Balia (elettronica).
Con la parte musicale rielaborata in tempo reale con algoritmi di live
electronics e sintesi del suono, tra rumorismo ed improvvisazione con
un risultato che attraversa mondi sonori distanti, senza mai soffermarsi
in un genere musicale definito tematiche sociali quali la salvaguardia
del pianeta e la difesa dei diritti umani, uno dei punti saldi dell’edizione
di quest’anno di Ai Confini tra Sardegna e Jazz.”
