Three days of music, exhibitions, a broad market exhibition of clothing and accessories, objects of worship and rare pieces of furniture, vinyl and video games, all strictly “vintage”, ie the Sixties and Seventies.
Special guests of the festival are two authentic stars of the world’s progressive music: David Cross and Mel Collins, coming from a band absolutely industry leader, King Crimson, which since the late seventies had elevated to the rank of art rock the rising time progressive movement. They will perform with Arts & amp; Crafts, horse band between progressive and jazz-rock that since the beginning has built its own very original style, as to be defined as “the progressive group of jazz-rock and the most progressive” jazz-rock group. During the three evenings alternate on stage other well-known names, from CCLR (Cavalli Cocchi, Lanzetti, Roversi) with Flaco Biondini and guest Aldo Tagliapietra (was the founder of the Orme in 1966, and his falsetto voice will give the group one of its major elements of continuity and recognition) the Agreement Contrari and Prophexy with host Richard Sinclair (famous bassist, guitarist and British singer, had founded in the seventies of the historical groups of Canterbury, as the Caravan and Hatfield and the North, played in the legendary Camel Andy Latimer and Bardens Peter, besides having played in the Rock Bottom masterpiece by Robert Wyatt and numerous side projects including jazz-rock, progressive and acoustic music); and even Paolo Schianchi (composer, researcher and inventor, plays all the existing variants of the guitar, has collaborated with among others the Parisian band Five O’Clock Jazz Group, Alberto Radius, the legendary guitarist and arranger of Lucio Battisti, Bernardo Lanzetti ( PFM) and Jim Donovan, repeatedly awarded platinum status in historical member of Rusted Root); Alex Carpani, Thotemico the altar, and Stereokimono .
And here we are again present as background music to another DVD: “La scatola dei racconti”.
Pinhole photography between teaching and creativity.
A greedy DVD where you can also savor some Stereokimono songs:
Some excerpts from “Prismosfera” and “Ki” have been used as the soundtrack of the DVD “Rosso Verzegnis”.
The DVD “Rosso Verzegnis: esperienza didattica sul territorio” is a project promoted by the municipality of Verzegnis and funded by the European Union, made with the State School Gian Francesco da Tolmezzo.
The purpose of this experience of integration between school and territory has been to try to understand the evolution over time of a sector, such as the red marble, closely linked to the territory of Verzegnis.
In the computer of the research synthesis support I include three documents: “The Verzegnis red marble” in which the theme was developed from the unique aspects of the natural environment of the territory of Verzegnis, and then go into that with the history of cava, the current reality and uses the marble also in the artistic event through the “sculpture in the red” and finally the educational package path “the historical street of marble Verzegnis”. To underline the practical teaching experience made with Edi Carrer, known sculptor of Buia and synthesized in the second video document “sculpture Stage”, in which the students were able to retrace, both in theory and in practice, the execution phases of a sculpture, drawing the work completed.
One of our songs (“Istanbul di Giorno”) was used as the soundtrack of the DVD “The knotted framework – The tied in knots picture” artist Veronese Eliana Masala.
“THE TIED IN KNOTS PICTURE: It is strange. Very strange. A very strange article in soft silk. It seems a toy, but it could be a “travel-sculpture” (this was the name that the great Italian Artist Bruno Munari has given to the “origami”). It is fascinating. But it is like a chameleon: don’t believe in what you are looking at. The truth is inside. If you really want to meet it, you must reach the nucleus loosening every knot like a curious child. The result will be you stupefied!” (Eliana Masala).
