Strange Attractor

 

Strange Attractor

Uno strano attrattore è un concetto nella teoria del caos che viene utilizzato per descrivere il comportamento dei sistemi caotici. A differenza di un attrattore normale, un attrattore strano prevede la formazione di schemi semistabili privi di una posizione spaziale fissa.

An equation or fractal set representing a complex pattern of behaviour in a chaotic system.

Sessione Pre Angiou

Share

In questo episodio, il concerto integrale dell'incontro tra Andy Moor e Tommaso Rolando, tenutosi a febbraio 2020, in una vecchia baracca in Valle Scrivia, alla spalle di Genova. La registrazione è diventata un disco, prima in uscita digitale su Catalytic Sound di Ken Vandermark, poi un cd su Torto Editions.

qua il commento di Andy sulla serata:

"In late February we played our first concert together in a wonderful space in Savignone Liguria near the town of Busalla about an hour from Genova. A beautiful old barn or cascina as it is called in Liguria , Cascina Pre Angiou run by Associazione Altravallescrivia a crew of great enthusiasts and fantastic hosts. Friends and families were all invited and we all eat a great minestrone and pasta and drank good wine at long tables before the concert began. There were several children present in the audience which is very audible in the recording ( no apologies there ) .,…and it was great to witness how such young minds deal with this kind of music …abstract sounds free improvisation, noise and a few melodies in there as well… the weirder and more abstract we played the more the children reacted and seemed to enjoy it … we didn’t have to tone things down for fear of alienating or terrifying the little ones,,,, some of the adults maybe but not the kids. Actually everyone had a good time and it was a very special moment and the last concert we played before things locked down ..so it stays in our memory as if it happened yesterday. Were very grateful and happy to have had this chance to play together in this setting ….hope you enjoy it as much as we did. - Andy Moor

In this episode, the full concert of Andy Moor and Tommaso Rolando first meeting, in february 2020, in an old barn in Valle Scrivia, in the valley behind the city of Genova. The recording then became an album, released on Catalytic Sound as digital and on Torto Editions as a cd.

here's some thoughts from Andy about it:
