Inner_Spaces #4: Valerio Tricoli, François Bonnet (GRM), Mats Lindström (EMS)

In collaboration with S/V/N/, San Fedele Musica, FAM – Festival Archivi Musicali and Archivio Storico Ricordi. All the pieces are played through the SATOR acousmonium consisting of 50 speakers and 32 channels to offer the audience a unique immersive aural experience.

François Bonnet, artistic director of Ina-GRM, plays a selection of seminal electroacoustic works from the GRM archives. GRM was formed in Paris in the late 1950s by Pierre Schaeffer, out of the Groupe de Recherche de Musique Concrète. Through the studio Schaeffer was able to continue his practical and conceptual investigations into concrète, electro-acoustic and electronic sound, alongside the likes of Luc Ferrari, Bernard Parmegiani and Iannis Xenakis. Out of this research centre would emerge some of the most distinctive and  pioneering electronic music of all time.

Philip Carson, Turmac (1961)
