Marco Bidin

Ricercare IV


Composed in Stuttgart, fall /winter 2016. This work is inspired by “The Wings” (corean “Nalgae”,), a short story written by the Korean autor Yi Sang (1910 - 1937). The desolate atmosphere in which the protagonists is immersed gives us an almost surreal perception of his dreadful life, bound to a tainted love relation and to selfdeception.
The electronics consist on a 4-channel tape, realised with processed recorded vibraphone sounds and synthesised sounds using OMChroma, OMChant and Csound.
Ricercare IV is composed for Alessia Park. A special thank to Lucas Gerin for realising the recorded vibraphone improvisation.
World premiere: 27. January 2017 , HMDK Stuttgart (DE)
Alessia Park, Soprano
Marco Bidin, electronics

I Sing the Body Electric
for Double Bass and Electronics
to Florentin Ginot
Double Bass : Florentin GINOT
Live-Electronics : Claudia Jane SCROCCARO
IRCAM CURSUS 2019.2020
Manifeste Festival 2020 - IRCAM, Paris
Encadrement Pédagogique : Mikhail MALT
Sound Engineer : Arnaud DE LA CELLE


The initial idea sprung from the possibility to compose a musical dramaturgy that could explore the physical tension between the body of the musician, the instrument, and the electronics. I was intrigued by the possibility that the double bassist, Florentin Ginot, could discover an unheard voice of the instrument and achieve new acoustic relationships which would correspond to a shifting in the space. The listener is guided through a
research for an inner balance between the electronics and the instrumental part and the promises implied in their sonic and physical desires evolve, shaping a process of spatial transformation, where the actions of deformation, distortion and enhancement are brought to the ears of the listener, with the powerful poetic reference to the title of Walt Whitman’s poem.


I sing the body electric,
The armies of those I love engirth me and I engirth them,
They will not let me off till I go with them, respond to them,
And discorrupt them, and charge them full with the charge of the soul.
[...]
Head, neck, hair, ears, drop and tympan of the ears,
Eyes, eye-fringes, iris of the eye, eyebrows, and the waking or sleeping of the lids,
Mouth, tongue, lips, teeth, roof of the mouth, jaws, and the jaw-hinges,
Nose, nostrils of the nose, and the partition,
Cheeks, temples, forehead, chin, throat, back of the neck, neck-slue,
Strong shoulders, manly beard, scapula, hind-shoulders, and the ample side-round of the
chest,
Upper-arm, armpit, elbow-socket, lower-arm, arm-sinews, arm-bones,
Wrist and wrist-joints, hand, palm, knuckles, thumb, forefinger, finger-joints, finger-nails,
Broad breast-front, curling hair of the breast, breast-bone, breast-side,
Ribs, belly, backbone, joints of the backbone,
Hips, hip-sockets, hip-strength, inward and outward round, man-balls, man-root,
Strong set of thighs, well carrying the trunk above,
Leg fibres, knee, knee-pan, upper-leg, under-leg,
Ankles, instep, foot-ball, toes, toe-joints, the heel;
[...]
The voice, articulation, language, whispering, shouting aloud,
Food, drink, pulse, digestion, sweat, sleep, walking, swimming,
Poise on the hips, leaping, reclining, embracing, arm-curving and tightening,
The continual changes of the flex of the mouth, and around the eyes,
The skin, the sunburnt shade, freckles, hair,
[...]
O I say these are not the parts and poems of the body only, but of the soul,
O I say now these are the soul!

Walt Whitman


Juan Camilo Vásquez

cap i cua (cielo y raíces)


cap i cua is dedicated to the memory of Graciela Vargas. Its materials, without planning, were recorded in La Vega, Colombia, her birthplace.
The work was conceived as a return to what is essential, as a path that, even if appears to go straight, returns to common places: It travels to locations already visited and resignifies them. Have a good journey, dear Grandma. (2019)

Claudia Jane Scroccaro

Claudia Jane Scroccaro is an Italian composer of instrumental and electroacoustic music.
The sonic aspect holds a dominant role in her work and it reflects deep interests for electronic music and for music of aural tradition. Her creative approach explores a musical dramaturgy shifting between a humanly perceivable listening experience and microphonic
projections of the dynamic properties of sound on multi-dimensional spaces, resulting into an alternation between kaleidoscopic movements and introspective explorations, saturation and transparence, sensuality and abstraction.
She is currently enrolled in the Konzertexamen program at Stuttgart HMDK, where she obtained the Masters degree, studying composition and electronic music with Marco Stroppa, while attending the 2019.2020 IRCAM Cursus, as well as composition Masterclasses held by Philippe Leroux and Franck Bedrossian. She is attending the 2020.21 SWR Vokalensemble Academy and has been appointed Tutor for the Electronic Music Studio at Stuttgart HMDK.
Her music has been performed in Europe and in the USA by Ensemble Ascolta, Ensemble Musikfabrik, ECCE Ensemble, Ensemble Suono Giallo, EchtZeit Ensemble, among others.
She has been composer in residence for the Music Innovation and Science Centre in Vilnius and is laureate from the Académie Voix Nouvelles in Royaumont (2020). Ongoing projects and collaborations include commissions from the Fondation Royaumont, Ensemble
Linea, Ensemble Musikfabrik, Klangforum Wien, France Musique and the choreographer Juliette Villemin.
