Alessandro Zannier + Ottodix Ensemble: "Micromega Performance"

Sa., 21.10.2017 | 21:00 Uhr | Anomalie Art Club, Berlin - Storkower Strasse 123 | 10€

 

"Micromega" is an original art exhibition and concert conceived and created by Alessandro Zannier, structured in nine levels inspired by the matter of the universe, from the micro particles to the systems of galaxies.

It's a complex, suggestive and visionary work, made of music and artworks that investigate the hidden mathematical rules and the recurrent schemes in nature, in its different levels of magnitude, suggesting some analogies with the contemporary man.

The project is developed around the concept of the  homonym album published by the artist

 (he's also a musician and singer) and stages the complexity of the cosmos and its apparent chaos, in an attempt to find again the sense of location and measure.

It will be presented in 2018 in various Italian and foreign cities, given its universal content, collaborating with research institutes, foundations, museums or science, philosophy, astronomy, biology, anthropology and geology festivals, as well as artistic and musical environments.

 

Micromega - the album and the show

 

After the preview presented in the visual arts section of the COFFI Festival in Berlin 2017 (01-03 September), Alessandro Zannier returns with the Ottodix Ensemble in the German capital on October 21, 2017 for a more articulated and complete concert / exhibition at Anomalie Art Club.

 

The illustrations, the video-tutorial, the mapping area with visuals, the big installation "Resonance" and the light-plexi sculpture "Sacred Collisions", exhibited in the Anomalie Gallery, are only a part of the complete exhibition "Micromega project" planned for 2018.

 

The album "Micromega" (Discipline/Mastermusic 2017), published by Zannier and signed as "Ottodix", the alter ego of the artist Alessandro Zannier, which finds its inspiration in the homonymous short story by Voltaire, is presented as a real interdisciplinary concert between science, music, art and philosophy, placed alongside the exhibition.

The visuals will be projected on a striking large sphere and the lyrics of the songs of "Micromega" will accompany this musical and sensorial experience as a trip through the matter of the universe. On stage, besides Zannier, there are percussion, guitar, synth, string quartet and electronics.

 

Welcomed enthusiastically by the press, the album has been produced among Italy, Barcellona and Los Angeles
The production of this project is sponsored from Biennial Italy China, which premiered it in Beijing in 2016.

 

Micromega Project - the visionary encyclopedia

 

MicromegaProject is a digital installation conceived by Alessandro Zannier to unite in one work the three artistic worlds that have always characterized his work as a multimedia artist: music, visual arts and writing. It includes 117 music tracks, links to scientific and cultural contents, 108 illustrations and nine 3D projects in 3D of real art installations, everything to create an exhibition dedicated to contemporary man and his lost relationship with the magnitudes of nature.

 

The work was born as an expansion of the album "Micromega", composed of 9 songs inspired by various orders of magnitude, from the micro particles to the systems of universes, with the man in the centre.

 

The installation, is a website that has no precedent: a visionary encyclopedia, between fiction and reality, where art and music re-elaborate the scientific and philosophical culture of our century in a poetic key, searching for more certain existential answers.

 

The illustrations, The video-tutorial, and the installation "Sacred Collisions", exhibited in this area, are only a part of the complete exhibition "Micromega project" planned for 2018.

"Micromega" è una originale mostra-concerto ideata e creata da Alessandro Zannier, strutturata in nove livelli ispirati alla materia dell'universo, dalle micro particelle ai sistemi di galassie.

Un lavoro complesso, suggestivo e visionario, fatto di musica e opere d'arte che indagano le regole matematiche occulte e gli schemi ricorrenti nella natura a vari livelli di grandezza, suggerendo analogie con l'uomo contemporaneo.

Il progetto è sviluppato attorno al concept dell'omonimo album pubblicato dall'artista (anche musicista e cantante) e mette in scena la complessità del cosmo e il suo apparente caos, nel tentativo di farci ritrovare il senso della posizione e della misura all'interno di esso.

 

Verrà presentato dal 2018  in varie città italiane e all'estero, dato il suo contenuto universale, collaborando con istituti di ricerca, fondazioni, musei o festival di scienza, filosofia, astronomia, biologia, antropologia e geologia, oltre che ambiti artistici e musicali.

 

Micromega - l'album e il concerto - spettacolo

 

Dopo l'anteprima presentata al COFFI Festival di Berlino 2017 (01-03 settembre) nella sezione arti visive, Alessandro Zannier torna con l'Ottodix Ensemble nella capitale tedesca il 21 ottobre 2017 per un concerto/mostra più articolato e completo all'Anomalie Art Club.

 

L'album, pubblicato da Zannier sotto lo pseudonimo musicale di "Ottodix" e ispirato a una novella di Voltaire, viene presentato come un vero e proprio concerto interdisciplinare tra scienza, musica, arte e filosofia, affiancato alla mostra.

I visuals proiettati su una suggestiva grande sfera on stage e i testi delle canzoni di "Micromega" accompagneranno questa esperienza musicale e sensoriale come un viaggio attraverso la materia dell'universo. In palco, oltre a Zannier, percussioni, chitarra, synth, quartetto d'archi ed elettronica. 

 

Accolto con toni entusiastici dalla stampa, l'album è stato prodotto  tra l'Italia, Barcellona e Los Angeles

La produzione dell'operazione è patrocinata dalla Biennale Italia Cina, che ha presentato in anteprima il progetto a Pechino nel 2016.
