In “Discussione del 3000” the two percussionists produce, through their instrumental technique, an abstract verbal discussion formed of phonetic sounds.
This piece, inspired by Futurism, is part of the score composed for the dance music “Anihccam” with choreography by Lucia Latour. The wowel sounds are extracts from “Verbalizzazione Astratta di Signora” by poet and painter Fortunato Depero and the talking voice which is processed by computer is that of the italian painter Achille Perilli. “Discussione del 3000” is part of the staged concert “Macchine Virtuose“.
