Stellage is excited to present The Fall, musique-concrète produced and mixed by the Italian composer Fabio Selvafiorita from 2013 to 2019. Born in Milan, Selvafiorita is a composer of instrumental and electro-acoustic music. The Fall is his first fulllength solo release. Selvafiorita’s acousmatic music investigates the complexities between in-formal abstractions and Pathos in sound manifestations.
Described by his author as an “old fashioned symphonic electronic poem” The Fall explores a spiritual transmutation where biographical sound marks collide with intangible sounds from the uncanny. From the clash of this alchemical counterpoint multiple layers of narratives, phono-fictions of The Fall, emerge as tremors of reality “toward which perception moves” (Ezra Pound). For The Fall Selvafiorita embarked in over six years of research and experimentation with hundreds of sounds: from field recordings to processed and synthesized sounds, from tape reel manipulations to time-frequency esoteric processing techniques.
These aural concretions interlock one another forming, by magic or accident, gyre, torsions and turbulences. Here the sounds become bodies and not just debris of acoustic matter. A tangible physic of phantasmatic presences that scrape the loudspeaker cones: rocks, sands and telluric tremors turn into omens of the pathos-logic in order to transmute auditory mereotopologies into a panpsychic acousmatic engine.
