Event description

Description

Visionary percussionist Maurizio Ravalico (Collocutor, Fiium Shaarrk, Dele Sosimi, ex Jamiroquai) will present a selection of music from his solo percussion album ‘Nobody’s Husband, Nobody’s Dad’, out on Funkiwala records.
Entirely acoustic, with no playback devices, loops or electronic manipulations, Maurizio’s unique performance is a continuos unfolding of unearthly sounds, often generated by unexpected combinations of conventional instruments and found objects, both played using a mix of orthodox and extended techniques. Another character of Maurizio’s solo compositions lies in its persistent denial of metric recurrence, making for a performance which recalls the aesthetics of both contemporary and improvised music, despite it being neither strictly composed nor at all improvised. To get a sense of his extraordinary energy and sonic imagination, check out his album:

Maurizio Ravalico is a London/Berlin based percussionist with a surprisingly varied carreer spanning over 30 years, during the course of which he has maintained a lively and constantly cross-pollinating interest in musical expressions as diverse as funk, rock, 20th century composition, Latin American music, free-form improvisation, contemporary jazz and the so-called “experimental music” of post-war and beyond.
