Improvisations RR & ELS

by Roger Redgate & Emmanuel Lorien Spinelli

  • Streaming + Download




Roger Redgate and Emmanuel Spinelli have been collaborating for a few years on numerous projects. On the cusp between free improvisation and visual art, their practice explores a complex relationship between sound-objects, installations, and music and often incorporates movement (with dancer Susanna Recchia) and performance-painting (with artist Mark Rowan Hull). At a time when non-idiomatic music has now developed its own aesthetic and tradition, Redgate and Spinelli seek to adopt a different approach to the improvisatory mode of production and challenge the boundaries between sonic art, installation, and performance.

* Roger Redgate: Violin

R. Redgate is a composer/performer whose work focuses on the complex relationship between notation, improvisation and the physicality of performance. Exploring the boundaries of what can or can’t be notated as possible forms of material, his work combines both aspects of complex notational strategies (complexity) and extended playing techniques with various approaches to improvisation in a wide range contexts.

* Emmanuel L. Spinelli: Objects, modified-guitar, live electronics.

Spinelli has been collecting sonic-objects, toys and other derelict material since 1998 and has been developing electronic tools for live processing and improvisation. Through his research and practice as a composer, Spinelli has been focussing on field recording and acoustic ecology for the creation of sound installations and multi-channel works.
