Julian Scordato is a composer, sound artist and music technologist.

Luca Curci – Your performance has just been realized during Venice Experimental Cinema and Performance Art Festival: can you talk about your personal experience in Venice with International ArtExpo?

Martina Favret During Venice Experimental Cinema and Performance Art Festival we met artists coming from various experiences and with different styles. I enjoyed a challenging atmosphere. The venue, Palazzo Ca’ Zanardi, is very suggestive and suited for our performance, which required a quite complex setup. However, the organization and staff were helpful and available at meeting our technical requirements.

L. C. – Can you talk about the performance you presented in Venice? How is it linked with the festival’s theme?

Julian Scordato – In our work “Spazio neurale” a performer interacts with a computer through gestures of the fingers, exploring a virtual space which is projected by four speakers. The gestures allow the generation of moving sound sources in the electroacoustic space. Also, they determine dynamics as well as audio spatialization. Such exploration establishes a strong connection between body and space.

L. C. – What are you currently working on?

J. S. – I am working on interactive performance systems that are focused on the relationship between gesture and sound. I believe this relation is essential to music. Above all, it is an important issue in electronic music where instruments are often virtual. Mine is an interdisciplinary research, though. The collaboration with Martina – who comes from an acting background – helps me to go beyond my boundaries.

L. C. – What is art for you?

M. F. – Art is a kind of expression that takes various forms and comes from an inner need. To me, art is a way to find emotions through body language. I believe that body is a great tool, not exploited enough in everyday life.

L. C. – What do you think about International ArtExpo organization?

J. S. – I guess ArtExpo organization could be an answer for many artists, especially for independent artists who struggle to find occasions for sharing ideas and views. Art should be addressed to an international audience in order to get an absolute value.

L. C. – Do you think International ArtExpo organization can represent an opportunity for artists?

J. S. – Sure. For example, Venice Experimental Cinema and Performance Art Festival was a great chance for international artists to have their work performed in an extraordinary city. Venice is a hardly accessible place, also for contemporary art.
