sincronie chew-z in Milano and Reggio Emilia

CHEW-Z was a festival organised by Massimiliano Viel and the people arround the plattform sincronie.

CHEW-Z Colliding HEterophonic Waves was inspired by the book “The Three Stigmata of Palmer Eldritch” by Philip K. Dick and was dealing with his ideas of perception of reality. Staalplaat Soundsystem was invited to play togethet with the Icarus Ensemble as well as solo parts for this two concert evenings. A YOKOMONO solo part was done but only with records cut especially for this event based on the material of Fausto Romitelli’s “La sabbia del tempo”. We did a analog live remix of this material. We played a MACHINE orchestra solo part and a piece called “Can-D” by Riccardo Nova together with the Icarus Ensemble, Riccardo Nova’s electronic manipulations and our MACHINES.
