This concert-performance is a tribute to the Italian composer Fausto Romitelli
(1963-2004), a visionary composer whose fame has grown exponentially since his early death a decade ago.
Anything but academic, he is perhaps the only composer to date who has successfully married the sounds of psychedelic rock and trance with contemporary ‘art’ music. A virtuoso orchestrator whose work has an intensely electronic feel, Romitelli wrote astonishing music with a unique inner dynamism: his sound is never neutral, pure or ‘innocent’.
Given that the composer himself included a visual element in his work through his collaboration with the video artist, Paolo Pachini, his compositions provide the ARTéfacts ensemble with ideal material for a concert which is sure to send the ensemble’s familiar multidimensional style into the stratosphere.
So, to quote from one of the three pieces in the concert programme, it’s time to run amok!
