Mimetic Ensemble for a church #1 is a performance conceived by The Boys and Kifer for the church of San Giuseppe delle Scalze in Naples. The work is developed through the use of four live designated positions – each one for a different music instrument – located in the central nave of the church. Through the activation of every instrument, The Boys and Kifer enacts a stratification of melodies and different sounds – among which some field recordings collected in Naples in the days preceding the event – with the purpose to create a unique combination of sonorities capable to influence each other and then lose their singularity.

The Beginning is the pilot episode of a TV series which uses the linguistic means belonging to the serial television format, with the purpose of building a meta-narration which retraces the creation and the History of human language. In the first episode the narrator talks about the origin of the Universe. Images composed by DIY techniques – childlike representations but also home experiments – lead the spectator to questioning about the nature of human language, and on its adherence to reality.

Untiled is an experiential composition of incomprehensible nature. It could be a challenge for human intellect or a simply combination of things: incised clay, pigment, smoke and neon.

During the opening of “Arcipelago Ovest” two musicians – one next to the amplifier of the other – tried to tune their own guitars.

The sounds recorded during the performance are now transmitted by the amplifiers that, together with the other equipment, make up the elements of a unique installation.
