“Di Zampogne, Partenze e Poesia”, a Solo Performance by Giulio Bianco

In Di Zampogne, Partenze e Poesia, the “narrator” is the Italian zampogna, an ancient instrument historically used by shepherds during livestock migrations, with a sound that evokes rural myths and legends. The music combines traditional southern Italian genres to electronic music and orchestral composition. Through these works, Bianco uses the past to comment on the present. The project is also the result of a new approach to the musical tradition of the Salento area of Apulia, reflecting on how it has lately been influenced and altered by new technologies. Since the traditional language has always been tied to the instruments that musicians had at their disposal, and to changes in social structures at any given historical period, it is natural that it continue to evolve. Bianco’s research is focused on the use of electronic loops to construct traditional sounding pieces. This live concert is intended as an intense evocative tridimensional experience in which the music flows alongside projected images.
