A work presented during the personal exhibition of Pier Alfeo (also well known for his moniker Dubit) entitled "Incisione su Silenzio" at the Doppelgaenger gallery of Bari, Italy (22 February - 22 May 2019).

**300 copies, solid white vinyl, single sided** "The collection Works 2016-2018 includes Pier Alfeo's first three electro-acoustic compositions which were created during his academic years, a period in which the algorithmic computer programming technique was learned using the Wolfram language in the domain of the Mathematica software. This technique involves the construction of sound on a mathematical-computer level taking into account the structural parameters of the sound itself, such as: attack times, duration, intensity, height, envelope and spatialization, using granulators, additive synthesis and subtractive synthesis. The system consists in the creation of data matrixes which are then appropriately interpreted by the CSound software, which renders them in audio format, and were subsequently organized and edited for composition purposes.

The intent, during both programming and composition, was to arrive at a sound that preserved a certain warmth and organicity (contrary to the coldness of the technique itself). This was possible by intercepting a series of trends and classes of numbers that exhibit a fluid behavior, reflecting the internal motions of nature.
The influences that led to the creation of these works are by composers such as Karlheinz Stockhausen, Pierre Schaeffer, Luigi Nono, Bruno Maderna, Iannis Xenakis, etc.

In All That Fall, a single sample of origin was used, the recording of a crackling fireplace, while in The Never Spoken Words all sound generations were created by processing only recordings of voices and vocalizations."
