Una giungla rada e sottile compone i brani di "pietra e oggetto".
È sottile perché resta tale nella memoria, grazie al dispositivo del silenzio, che funziona come l’aria tra le cose, il tempo che permette di imprimere nel nostro taccuino acustico ciò che abbiamo ascoltato. Come quando si chiudono gli occhi per conservare un ricordo. Per poi passare al successivo.
Percepiamo una sensazione di privilegio, per l’opportunità di ascoltare questi ambienti indecidibili, oggetti composti e ibridi, pieni di biodiversità sintetica, sulla soglia tra natura e cultura. Accediamo a questo privilegio grazie all’operazione consapevole di taglio, un “carotaggio” che ritaglia narrazioni acustiche salienti pescate (e quindi innescate) a partire da un flusso potenzialmente non finito: stanze di accadimenti e fruscii rosa scuro di sottobosco.

A sparse and subtle jungle comprises the pieces that make up "pietra e oggetto".
It is subtle, as such it remains in the memory. Thanks to the device of silence, which is like the air in between things, it allows time for what we have heard to imprint on our acoustic sketchpad. Like closing your eyes to preserve a memory and then moving on to the next.
We feel a certain privilege in listening to these undecidable environments; these composite and hybrid objects filled with synthetic biodiversity, on the threshold between nature and culture. We access this privilege thanks to the cutting operation, a coring practice that cuts out salient acoustic narratives, fished (and then triggered) from a potentially limitless flow; rooms of occurrences and dark pink rustles from the undergrowth.

Luciano Maggiore is a Palermo-born, London-based musician whose work is characterised by the use of speakers and several analogue/digital devices (samplers, CD players, walkmans, tape recorders) and addresses the performativity of the musical act, the perception of it, and the obscurity that emanates from it.
His main interests include mechanisms of sound diffusion, performance, repetition, endurance, non-human animal languages, dance, folklore.
With Louie Rice, he started NO-PA/PA-ON, a project that deals with performing score-based works, both acoustic and amplified.
His works are published by Balloon & Needle, Boring Machines, Consumer Waste, Hideous Replica, Kohlhaas, Palustre, Senufo editions, 1000Füssler, TakuRoku, Triscele Registrazioni and Tulip records.

Recorded and edited between May 2019 and May 2020.
Mastered by Giuseppe Ielasi.
