Label: Dissipatio

Format: CD

Genre: Experimental

eKPYrotic is an improvised music duo formed by Mirco Ballabene on double bass and electronics, and Massimiliano Furia on percussion. The electronics, created with MaxMsp, could be defined as the third element, because it guides the path of the musicians who, in turn, determine its breathing and dynamics in real time through a midi foot controller managed by Mirco. This organic, living electronics often becomes indistinguishable from the sounds generated by musicians, acoustic sounds which, through extensive techniques and instrument preparations, integrate with synthetic sounds, merging into a single extremely fascinating timbral and gestural path. eKPYrotic refers to the theory of the ecpyrotic universe, the cosmological model which theorizes that the birth of the universe derives from the accidental collision between two branes, Big Splat, and which preceded the Big Bang. Thus the clash/encounter between the two musicians intends to create a sound universe that has its own internal coherence and, like scientific theory, wants to go beyond the usual paths to show courageous alternatives to commonly accepted thought and expression.
