[ISEA2015] Artist Statement: Antonio D’Amato – R-EVO

Artist Statement

Stereo Acousmatic Music – Audio File (2014)

R-evo is a short acousmatic piece about the idea of change by means of disruption, evolution or revolution. Sometimes a change can be a fusion of different points of view, other times it is as simple as a change of habit. In this work, short vocal samples extracted from Joseph-Maurice Ravel’s choreographic symphony “Daphnis et Chloé” are processed with acoustic instrument samples and synthesized with other elements.

  • Antonio D’Amato graduated from the conservatory in Piano, Harpsichord, Music for Multimedia, Music Pedagogy and Electronic Music. He studied composition for eight years and bassoon for three years, as well as baroque organ and audio engineering. In 2010 he was a student of Ondes Martenot in Strasbourg and Paris, France. His current interest is to combine traditional composition procedures with the expansive opportunities of
    computer-based music. D’Amato’s instrumental works have been published by Forton Music, U.K, and his first electronic composition was selected for a performance during the ICMC 2012 Conference. His works have been performed in Australia, Brazil, Greece, Italy, Mexico, Slovenia, Taiwan and USA.
