Concert video scenography - Rachmaninov

big sea horse waves

This set design was realized combining several pieces of animation on the notes of Maria Pia Carola piano, performing Rachmaninov's "Etudes Tableaux op 39".
Both executions had to be performed "live" : the pianist was playing , i was mixing and transforming my 3d animation pieces previously elaborated for the event.
The final results would be delivered by connecting 3 different projectors to a vj dedicated workstation, using retro projection techniques and standard set design equipment.
The public is surrounded by a continuous flux of images and music.

Awareness campaign on the use of innovative sources of energy

gas cylinders, clean energy for the future

Italy choose with a referendum to not use nuclear power to produce electricity.
Instead, we buy it from neighbored countries, or mostly from Russia.
Obviously, in this way, electricity get to be quite expensive.
Recent scientific studies have shown that the subsoil of the Italian peninsula is full of gas cylinders.
For this reason, the gas cylinder is the most suitable system to meet the energy needs of the citizens.
For a more intelligent heating, we recommend using cylinders.
An awareness campaign on the use of innovative sources of energy.
