La Marrana

I first went to Italy in 2001 to present work with Magdalena Campos-Pons at La Biennale di Venezia. At the opening we met Gianni and Grazie Bolongaro who commissioned us to create “Interiorità o Luna sulla collina” a permanent work for La Marrana (2003).

This year Gianni and Grazie Bolongaro asked me to select a group of sound works to present during the "Garden for Life" fund raiser for the Breast Health Institute. I chose works by Gary Chang, Anthony Baldino, Jess Hewitt and Pierce Warnecke. The following day La Marrana featured works by visual artists Claudio Losi and Hamish Fulton and hosted an artists talk with Giacinto Di Pietrantonio and Angela Vettese.

Ann Chang, Jess Hewitt, Anthony Baldino, Daria Trevisan, Neil Leonard, Gary Chang, Pierce Warnecke, Arthur Chang. Anthony, Jess and Pierce are graduates of Berklee College of Music. Daria attended my Site Specific Sound Installation and Performance Seminar at Università degli Studi di Padova and C. Pollini Conservatory (2006).

Anthony, Jess and Pierce were a huge hit everywhere we played.
