The Sun Has No Shadow | Rebecca Salvadori Exhibition - opening
The Sun Has No Shadow is a screening event that explores aspects of the techno culture, both as an individual experience and as a form of collective rituality. Through the films Tresor Tapes and The Sun Has No Shadow by Rebecca Salvadori, the exhibition develops along binary dynamics that activate a generative tension between opposite poles - London-Berlin, archive-affective memory, individual experience-collective ritual. A third film, Empathy, brings attention to silence and portraiture.
February 26th | 3 pm | Talk

7 INCH EXPERIMENTA
Every year 7Inch gathers original works that can’t be easily defined: they are neither narrative shorts nor video clips, yet they are both. They are often crazy experiments with no apparent sense and they find their meaning in music and rhythm. Breaking the rules without asking permission, making noise and chaos. Seeyousound is the perfect place for this tagless and floating genre that encloses the nature of the three “short” sections of the Festival.
7 Inch Experimenta is an experimental short film programme where music and rhythm are not only a soundtrack but help to shape and affect images.

SEQUENZE PARALLELE LIVE A/V - CONCERT FOR CELLO, ALGORITHMICS, IMAGE AND ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE
With Manuel Zigante, Riccardo Mazza e Laura Pol
Sequenze Parallele (Parallel Sequences) is a conceptual work that reflects on the contemporary world increasingly dominated by algorithms that insert themselves into our personal lives, acquiring enormous quantities of data to process them into more and more complex schemes (AI) and that are in fact influencing our lives.
The work will be performed for the first time for Seeyousound and it will consist of 4 compositions dedicated to the relationship between human beings and nature and their complex existential bond, the perception of the world around us and the sense of belonging.

LA CASA DI VIA SILVIO PELLICO. VISITA ALL'APPARTAMENTO DI GUSTAVO ADOLFO ROL - ESPERIENZA SONORA
Gustavo Adolfo Rol fu una figura misteriosa, contraddistinta da un sottile fascino piemontese. Fu un maestro spirituale per i tanti – artisti, celebrità e persone comuni- che lo conobbero ed ebbero modo di frequentare la sua splendida casa nel quartiere torinese di San Salvario. La sua fama di sensitivo si diffuse tra l’élite politica e aristocratica di mezza Europa, e i capi di Stato di molti paesi spesso lo cercarono per chiedergli consiglio. Fu grande amico di Federico Fellini e incontrò personaggi come Albert Einstein e Benedetto Croce, John Cage e Salvador Dalì, D’Annunzio e Krishnamurti. Nel 1995, dopo la sua morte, gli arredi e gli oggetti di casa Rol – per sua volontà testamentaria – furono messi all’asta da Sotheby’s, a Milano.
Ivan Carozzi, partendo da un elenco di oggetti e arredi appartenuti a Rol, ha ideato e scritto un testo radiofonico, una lunga e profonda immersione sonora, che in questa occasione potrà essere ascoltata sedendo tra le poltroncine rosse dello storico Cinema Maffei, nel cuore di San Salvario, a breve distanza dalla casa dove Rol incantò decine di ospiti stregati, esibendosi nei suoi celebri esperimenti.

ALESSIA TONDO & DAVIDE AMBROGIO - LIVE
Despite their young age, Alessia Tondo and Davide Ambrogio have already made their way in the diversified world of international folk music, earning unanimous acclaim and prestigious awards in Italy and abroad thanks to their respective original projects. Inspired by and drawing heavily from the roots of the folk music of their places of origin, they have the rare merit of having been able to breathe new life into an archaic and intimate world, projecting stylistic features and forms from the depths of Southern Italian music into the future.
Sharing an extraordinary knowledge of the traditional music of their origins and a very strong natural tension to make their artistic proposal current and modern, Alessia and Davide meet for the first time on the Seeyousound stage, after Paolo Lucà and FolkClub invitation, on whose stage they have both performed over the past year, giving life to a unique performance that will cross their artistic personalities and sensibilities, in a journey between worlds of sounds that are familiar but still to be explored, a window wide open on the avant-garde of contemporary folk music.

THIS LAND IS YOUR LAND
By and with Francesco Cavecchi
Focusing on the American protest song, it explores the work of songwriters like Guthrie, Seeger, Dylan, Nina Simone, Tracy Chapman and Springsteen, in concert with the narration of American history: from Irish and Italian migrations to slavery, from the Great Depression to the exodus of peasants from the Midwest to California, from the march for human rights to McCarthyism, from Vietnam to the fusion of literature and music (Steinbeck's Tom Joad reworked by Guthrie and Springsteen). The show features three musicians on stage (voice/guitar, cello, lead guitar), and a narrator.

In collaboration with CreativAfrica / Renken Onlus, Magazzino sul Po and Salgari Records.

The result of an intense musical research, AfroBaile will be a rare opportunity to discover a great musical heritage to dance, sweat, and have fun like there's no tomorrow.

THE WENDS - LIVE
The Wends represents a new chapter for the Turin-based band that was known as “Smile”. The new name tells of a new identity that translates into darker, more nervous songs that switch from shimmering arpeggios to more nervous post-punk guitars, from melodic singing to screaming, expressive vocals. From reflections on everyday life to the search for an alternative “after the meltdown”, in search of what philosopher Mark Fisher called “post-capitalist desire”.
Their first album, The name of this band is Smile (Subjangle/Dotto) was named “Italian album of the year” by indie-zone.it and received critical acclaim in Italy, as well as several radio broadcasts in the US, UK and Spain. Their most recent work released in October by We Were Never Being Boring (US/IT) and Subjangle (SA/UK) is entitled It's Here When You Fall.
