The presentation done on March 8th 2011 in ESA-ESTEC of INFINITE SPACES, my project of a Concert for Astronaut and Orchestra with Maestro Ennio Morricone and my friend astronaut Roberto Vittori. You can see the video of the demonstration done on July 20th 2009 in Piazza del Popolo in Rome on Facebook on the video https://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=1166466540229 or on YouTube on http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-zgTUzmAKM.
You can see other videos of SGUARDI SONORI Sound Art Festival here: https://www.facebook.com/video/?id=1784899668
We are searching sponsor to realize this project with the astronaut on space and we are preparing the edition of SGUARDI SONORI 2012 with a great exhibition in Ancona at Mole Vanviltelliana 15th-30th September dedicated to the great maestro Gino De Dominicis "Gino on my Mind".

Infinite Spaces Presentaton At Esa Estec 8 3 2011

  1. 1. Sguardi Sonori 2011: INFINITE SPACESA great concert for astronaut and orchestradirected by Ennio Morricone withRoberto Vittori and Paolo Nespoli By FaticArt Association Sandro Cecchi ESTEC 8.3.2011
  2. 2. Sguardi Sonori is a festival of contemporary art organized bythe nonprofit cultural association FaticArt which takes place inItaly with artists from around the world since 2004. The sections ofthe festival are: electronic music, soundart installation,performance art, contemporary art (installations, video art,painting, photography).The event INFINITE SPACES will take place between April andMay 2011 is a concert conducted by Maestro Ennio Morricone,which could take place from Rome or another place in the world inconjunction with the International Space Station with theparticipation as a soloist of the astronaut Roberto Vittori(probably in April 2011 since the launch date of the ultimate SpaceShuttle mission STS-134 has been fixed on April 19th 2011) orother Italian astronaut Paolo Nespoli, who is already on the ISSand will remain there until May 16, 2011.The project was selected by the Ministry of PublicAdministration and Innovation for participation from July 24th toAugust 7th 2010 at the Italian Pavilion at World Expo in Shanghaifor the exhibition “Italia degli Innovatori” (Innovators of Italy).
  3. 3. This concert could be broadcasted worldwide over the 5continents (Dubai, Seoul, Assisi / Rome, Jerusalem, Dakar /Johannesburg, Beijing / Shanghai, Sydney, New York, etc..) and itwill see the participation of the greatest artists in the world that willgive their contribution to what should be the most universalCONCERT FOR PEACE ever made: a Woodstock of the thirdmillennium that will be broadcasted around the world via satellitein High Definition 3D in theatres that are equipped with thistechnology via Eutelsat- OpenSky.
  4. 4. The concert has already had a prologue INFINITE SPACESPreview on July 20, 2009 in Rome at Piazza del Popolo on theoccasion of the celebration of the fortieth anniversary of thelanding on the moon.The video of the memorable execution occurred in the presenceof 100,000 people filled the square is visible on the Facebookpagehttp://www.facebook.com/video/video.php?v=1166466540229that is in the space devoted to Video of the group "SGUARDISONORI Sound Art Festival" or on YouTube
  5. 5. The videoclip of July 20th2009 and the Exhibion held at Museo della Civiltà Romana on October 9th 2010http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y-zgTUzmAKMhttp://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rVrAOWtTr10
  6. 6. LOCATIONS 2011Various locations, one for the continent, connected directly tothe hall where the orchestra of the Maestro Ennio Morriconewill perform INFINITE SPACES in conjunction with theInternational Space Station.Among those taken into account for the Maestro Morricone’sOrchestra:Altare della Patria, RomeBasilica of Assisi,Stazione Marittima of Naples,Piazza San Giovanni, RomeOther in the world:Taiwan, Seoul, Jerusalem, Johannesburg,Beijing, Shanghai, Chongqing, Sydney, New York, London.
  7. 7. INFINITE SPACES: the projectIMPLEMENTATION OF THE CONCERT LIVE FROM THESPACE STATION IN 2011Date to be determined in accordance with a schedule of launchesto the ISS and with the workplan of the STS-134 mission and ISSoperations. Hopefully it will be done during the next mission of theItalian astronaut Roberto Vittori and Paolo Nespoli by April-May2011.The project was designed by Sandro Cecchi and Carlo Fatigoniand includes the participation of the Italian astronauts RobertoVittori and Paolo Nespoli and Ennio Morricone with whom wework on a possible "score for astronaut and orchestra".This can be done live with worldwide broadcasting in conjunctionwith the International Space Station (ISS) with the participation ofsome of the greatest artists in the world playing together theastronauts aboard the ISS.
  8. 8. PARTICIPANTSSome of the artists considered are: Bruce Springsteen, Bono,Sting, Laurie Anderson, Brian Eno, Lou Reed, Ravi Shankar,Alva Noto, Ryuichi Sakamoto, Scanner, DJ Spooky, Vijay Iyer,Alice Coltrane, Juan-Claude Risset, Franco Battiato,Alessandro Cortini, Elio Martusciello, Phill Niblock, RichardDevine, Neil Leonard, Lamonte Young, David Byrne, EllenFullman.The event should last from 2 to 3 hours depending on locations andrelated artists. The live audio-video contact with the ISS last from 8to 20 minutes, unless NASA makes available a permanent link tothe Space Station during the event.During one of this audio-video contact will be performed "Concertofor Astronaut and Orchestra" INFINITE SPACES by EnnioMorricone.
  9. 9. Implementation of the score of the "Concerto for Astronaut and Orchestra" by the astronaut sideThe astronaut will be connected with the control room of theconcert. The performance of the score by the astronaut will bemade by sending the appropriatecommand (control data) of an OSC(Open Sound Control) with hishands movement that will modulatepropriately through the softwaresDensity and Pulsaret the sounds ofthe stars and the universe that arepreloaded on a Apple host computerin the control room on ground.
  10. 10. The submission of monitoring data generated by the astronaut from the ISS to the Earth with his movement implies that the OSC protocol is present as a special application written for the Ground Control Computer in the Control Room.The conductor gives the ON / OFF command to run the score tothe astronaut. The command may be given either in video, if theastronaut has a chance to see theconductor as well as ON / OFFdirectly on the astronaut interface.The sounds are mixed in real timeon ground with the music of theorchestra and with any other sound
  11. 11. The nature of electronic sounds generated by the astronaut will be of two types:1) real sound of space, concrete materials like “Cassini Listens to Lightning at Saturn”, “Sounds of the Magnetosphere”, “Voyager Termination Shock” and so on. 2) synthetic sound: microsound implementation of Pulsaret Wavlet, Grainlet Granular Synthesis Technique, etc..
  12. 12. Software author: Density/Pulsaret DSP: Alessandro Petrolati Requirements: on the ISS: - ”inflight call” with the astronauts on the Earth: MacBook pro Intel internet access point with a static IP addressaudio mixer for the regia and electronic sound integration
  13. 13. Pulsaret v.1.0Microsound Prototypes Granular Synthesis: Glisson, Pulsar,Grainlet, Trainletwww.densitygs.comAlessandro Petrolatiape@kagi.com© 2010Pulsaret is a new interactive real-timeprogram for asynchronous/synchronousprototypes granular synthesis. Pulsaretimplements a wide range of time-domainvarieties of granular synthesis:glisson, grainlet, trainlet pulsar etc... Sound disintegration,pulverizer, sampled envelope “convolution”, dynamic drawenvelope/shape, interpolation-transitions and Hyper Vectorialspads they simplify the creation of incredible sound objects. Allparameters are controllable via MIDI learning/rescale and OSCnetwork. Matrix & LFO provide a powerfull way to connect oneparameter with a dependent parameter/s, implementing allgrainlets kind.
