Sea Urchin, is a project that works with the primal forms of the sound and light. Starting from a series of stills, excerpts from
a video documentary filmed under the sea near the island of Tioman in Malysia. Francesco Cavaliere and Leila Hassan,
are researching during their live performance, the lost re?ection, which lies on the deep seabed. Using raw materials and textile surfaces,
they transform multiples rays of light into a projection that changes shape—organically and constantly. Sea Urchin, is a vehicle of
investigation that furthers their aim to explore a mirage of forms, as a bridge to an unreachable cosmos, or, equally an unexplored seabed.
Cavaliere & Türkowsky
"For some reason we have always kept as the adventure as a main narrative for the journey for more appaerent reason.
Our sources of inspiration are always information that comes from our immediate environment.
But the objects themselves dont actually have much of a direct meaning or relationship to the actions and sounds as such .... but it is a transition that we feel that we have to make. and then these actions and sounds are the images that we have had since the beinning and we always layer them over with different narratives....
Paradoxically, it is the misinterpretation of these pieces of information and the confusion that they generated that set it all off and make it happen. The documents are more like abstract images or sounds of a journey, things we use but for no reason they seem to be necessary."The Wire Bridge, Netmage2010
"Phonorama is a live electronics happening generated from improvisations by 20 musicians to
create a collective soundtrack. One long environmental suite involving some of the best artists in
the Italian electronic music scene. An informal group grown alongside the cultural centre Raum,
now operating in Bologna, Milan and Berlin". Xing, 2008
Phonoramatico is the auntomatic version of Phonorama created by more that 20 sound installations played by one main point.
Jonbo - N' Jovi duo with Seiji Morimoto
Automatic percussions systems, with little motors and speakers vibration and unusual choice of instrumentarium. "Ideated as a gamelan orchestra the duo Seiji Morimoto (who by the way is a trained gamelan player) and Francesco Cavaliere find and try all kinds of percussive moments in every day and not so every day objects. Witnessing their performance is sliding from one joyous moment to another, an adventurous hop and jump act that takes the onlooker (and I was one on more then one occasion) from one surprise to another."

ALBEROROVESCIATO/duo with Marco Lampis
"Drums, objects, fortuitous percussions and analog systems."Self described as desiring to escape electronic effects in favor of material contact, the duo successfully opt to do weird the old fashioned way, using vocals, drums, bells, gongs an "objects" to concoct an immersive percussion orchestra piece that travels the spaceways between Varese's "Ionisation," Andrew Cyrille and Milford Graves' "Dialogue of the Drums," and Balinese gamelan.These guys aren't slouches either. It may sound like chaotic pot and pan handling, but the duo move through their sound realms with a speed and energy that's pretty tough to come by. Hharsh blasts of feedback will enter and disperse as rattling and skittering mini melodies and percussive jaunts explode outwards, creating a classicist meets isolated genius meets mad professor vibe that's pretty strange and hard to pin down in terms of placement. Sometimes it comes across like a Henry Cowell piece and other times it sounds like a three year old dinnerware solo."Ear Conditioned Nightmare, 2008
