STEVE STAPLETON/CHRISTOPH HEEMANN -IVREA, IT- MUSICHE POSSIBILE (November 2009)

In 2009 I finally organized a collaboration between Steve and Christoph, in Ivrea, Italy at the synagogue. The Antica Sinagoga is now a public space and is an amazing venue. Ivrea is a small town near Turin, home to Elica Records and Musiche Possibili (it is also home to king Arduino of Italy, Olivetti, and the famous orange battles during Carnevale!). MP is a non profit cultural association who have a festival every autumn. They usually have a balanced mix of Italian musicians and foreigners. It was recorded and played on the RAI Battiti program of Nicola Catelano. Many thanks to Andrea Cernotto and all from the Musiche Possibili association (in particular the Zucca clan and il Cappo)

Christoph Heemann & Steven Stapleton

Un evento di risonanza mondiale realizzato in collaborazione con l’etichetta yesmissolga: dopo 30 anni di attività separate, nonostante un continuo rapporto di amicizia e collaborazione, due delle figure più influenti e stimate della recente musica sperimentale, nonché eccellenti artisti visivi, si ritrovano a Ivrea per il loro primo concerto in duo: Steven Stapleton (Nurse With Wound, ma anche collaborazioni con Diana Rogerson, Current 93, Faust, ecc.) e Christoph Heemann (In Camera, Mirror, Mimir, H.N.A.S., ma anche collaborazioni con Jim O’Rourke, Current 93, Charlemagne Palestine,Organum, Limpe Fuchs, ecc.) riempiranno l’Antica Sinagoga di suoni misteriosi e suggestivi, con l’utilizzo di strumenti acustici ed elettronici (ma nessun computer), in un’atmosfera genuinamente psichedelica, con una musica curiosa, evocativa e sensualmente ‘visiva’.
