Synchron is a multimedia music performance created by composers Michele Ciccimarra, Peter Hinz, Dominik Fürstberger and visual artists Antonio Pipolo, Nicola Pisanti (collettivocaleido) with the choreographic assistance of Éric Trottier. The project developed during a creative residency program hosted by EinTanzHouse,(DE) and was produced in partnership with the Municipality of Mannheim (DE).
The idea of the project is realized inside the binomial of synchrony and asynchrony in performance’s execution and how it reflect the movement of the bodies and the perception of the space in eviday life. During the days of the residency we developed the performance as a flow of improvvisation elements, playing with them in order to create a certain kind of aesthethic of “falling synesthesya” .
The composition that came out is a contemporary music piece for three drummers who fuse together worldwide sounds, instrument tradition and electronic music. In the performance the rhythms of the drummers oscillate around a prefixed structure continously following it and breaking it down over time.
