inus van Alebeek and Michał Libera set out for a dozen of excursions into Calabrian towns armed with Italo Calvino’s ‘Invisible Cities’ as a guide book, to recite, talk, read, listen, drink coffee, perform, play, record, play back… or: blow, bow, rub, explode, scrape, walk, ignore, talk, screw, dance, whistle, which are all suggestions of Alvin Lucier to make large and small resonant environments sound. The material recorded during these attempts to make invisible cities of Calabria sound was then composed by Rinus van Alebeek to form a road-audio-book.

Rinus van Alebeek – composition

Michał Libera – text adaptation

Rinus van Alebeek, Michał Libera – voices, recordings

The whole idea came from reading Italo Calvino’s „Invisible Cities” while travelling among unknown cities of Calabria. The similarities have been striking. The book became a guide, Kublai Khan – an emperor of the land in the south of Italy and the idea – irrepresible urge to actually perform this similiarity. The original text by Calvino was overwritten with some information – including the names of towns – distorted, filtered and overdubbed by its local reflections. Armed with it, Rinus van Alebeek and Michał Libera set out for a dozen of excursions into Calabrian towns to recite, talk, read, listen, drink coffee, perform, play, record, play back… or: blow, bow, rub, explode, scrape, walk, ignore, talk, screw, dance, whistle, which are all suggestions of Alvin Lucier to make large and small resonant environments sound. The material recorded during these attempts to make invisible cities of Calabria sound was then composed by Rinus van Alebeek to form a road-audio-book.

Populista 10-12

Three completely different albums intersecting in a territory of interpretation, overinterpretation and misinterpretation of music – beloved themes of Populista. Lucier and Ferrari albums may seem heterodoxical if not simply wrong, especially if compared with previous phonographic releases. Yet literally speaking, none of them violate the instructions of the scores and Populista is perversly proud to state that this time nothing forbidden by the composers have been done here. ‘Tautologos III’ and ‘Chambers’ are radically open forms, presuming a creative approach from the interpreters and this was taken seriously in search of the content that seems close to the music ideas of the composers. Tartini release is more of a classical Populista approach. It deliberately breaks the instructions given by the composer in the name of some other features introduced by the composer himself.
