Marco Donnarumma – 0-Infinity

''People call me a media+sound artist. I would say what I love is performing, at the same time, I’m curious about things. Most of the time I end up coding my software, developing devices and now even designing wearable tech.''

Marco Donnarumma – 0-Infinity

Update: all ‘0-Infinity’ sessions are fully booked. 

For 4DSOUND: Circadian, Marco Donnarumma challenges visitors with a visceral and communal ritual of sensory affection. 0:Infinity is an unstable and reactive architecture of infrasound vibrations, audible sounds and high-powered lights brought to life by and through the visitors’ bodies. The architecture grows, morphs and fall apart through time, space and frequency using biophysical signals and movement data from the visitors’ bodies. Using the Xth Sense, Donnarumma’s bio-wearable musical instrument, the inaudible sonic vibrations from the visitors’ hearts, blood flow and muscles are amplified and turned into tangible sonic material. A Ubisense location tracking system is used to make the architecture aware of the visitors’ positions and paths in space and thus morph according to the spatial relation between participants. The intimacy, or lack thereof, of the visitor’s encounters in space drives intense sonic and physical resonances. Human body parts and machine parts are configured into a total space of networked bodies.

Marco Donnarumma is a performance artist, sound artist, musician and writer whose work in the last six years has focused on how to configure human bodies and machines through sound. He uses biotechnologies, software algorithms and body sensors to create intensely physical performances, concerts and live installations. He has played interactive music by amplifying sounds from his body, has induced visitors in altered states of self-perception by feeding sounds from their bodies back to their skulls and bones, has immersed audiences in multichannel sound and video produced by the strain of his muscles while he pulled 50kg stones, and has physicalised digital viruses in the body. He uses human bodies and machines as materials. Working with biophysical media, that is, biomedical technologies, sound devices, computer software, sensor and transducers, he creates artworks where human bodies and machines extend, transform or disrupt each other.

Marco Donnarumma is being presented within the framework of SHAPE – a platform for innovative music and audiovisual art from Europe – and is supported by the Creative Europe program of the European Union. More information: www.shapeplatform.eu
