4 CD/ecopacks, BOX + 36-pages booklet that includes the bulk of Bosetti's compositional work of over a decade in which he "found shelter in the simultaneous intimacy and distance of radio. I feel happy, thrilled and relieved to be able to share those five pieces wich form a coherent unity and trace a personal itinerary while making use of translations, misunderstandings, travels, microphones, headphones and sonorous telephone games as creative tools.

It includes five radio compositions:

Arcoparlante ( Deutschlandradio Kultur 2009 ) , Gesualdo Translations ( Deutschland Radio Kultur, 2007 ) , A Collection of Smiles ( WDR Studio Akustische Kunst, 2011 ), The Whistling Republic ( WDR Studio Akustische Kunst, 2003 ) and Campanas ( Islas Resonantes, 2008 ). The booklet includes four essays by Gregory Whitehead, Ksenija Stefanovic and Alessandro Bosetti.

"Bosetti gives himself up to the entropy of sound, music, voice, self and situation. He allows himself (while inviting us) to become lost, bewildered, disoriented. He wants to sing his own special song, and yet that song turns out to be a song of disappearance and dissolution. He sings through complex echo chambers and infinity mirrors, reflections of bodies and voices and "rules", sometimes weaving, other times colliding, navigation by dead reckoning, and sheer intuition" Gregory Whitehead


4 CDs and a 36 page color booklet with an introduction by Gregory Whitehead and detailed notes on each composition, plus drawings.

Artist Biographies:

"Alessandro Bosetti (Born Milano, Italy, 1973) is a composer, performer and sound artist currently based in Marseille.

Most of his works delve on musicality of spoken language and sonorous aspects of verbal communication. He utilizes misunderstandings, translations and interviews as compositional tools.

He has been presenting pieces for voice and electronics blurring the line between electro acoustic composition, aural writing and performance in leading venues as the GRM/Presences Electroniques festival in Paris, Roulette in NYC, The Stone in NYC and Cafe OTO in London among many more all over Europe, Asia and the United States.

One of the most innovative radio artists of his generation he created a vast body of work of hybrid, award winning, text-sound and radio compositions for the main Radio and Electro Acoustic Music studios in Europe, most notably for the historical WDR's Studio Akustische Kunst in Cologne and Deutschland Radio Kultur in Berlin.

Most recently he was awarded the Phonurgia Nova prize 2012 for his composition "636" (RTBF 2010) and the IDAF prize 2013 for his performance "Mask Mirror" an instrument and software that reorganizes speech for musical purposes enacting an electronic ventriloquism.

Since 2009 he started exploring repetitive speech-loop forms with his ensemble Trophies with drummer Tony Buck and fretless guitarist Kenta Nagai. Trophies has released three CDs and tours regularly. Further ongoing collaborations are with pianist Chris Abrahams (The Necks), composer vocalist Jennifer Walshe and vocalists Tomomi Adachi and Amelia Cuni.

As a concert composer he has been writing for ensembles as the Kammerenseble Neue Musik and Die Maulwerker in Berlin while upcoming collaboration include a project for the Janacek Opera house in Brno and a new vocal piece for the Neue Vokalsolisten Stuttgart. Renard, a cycle of chamber pieces for guitar, clarinet and voice commissioned in 2013 by the Besançon museum of Contemporary Art has just been released as an LP by Les Presses du Reel.

Although being known in recent years mostly as a solo performer past and present collaborations include musicians as Sophie Agnel, Serge Bagdassarians, Boris Baltschun, Günter Christman, Rhodri Davies, Michel Doneda, Axel Dörner, Annette Krebs, Peter Kowald, Giuseppe Ielasi, Phil Niblock, Enrico Malatesta, Renato Rinaldi, Christian Kesten, Bhob Rainey, Hankil Ryu, Otomo Yoshihide, Ches Smith, Taku Sugimoto, Taku Unami along with writers Charles Pennequin and Kim T'ae Yong and typographers Indre Kilimaite and Annette Stahmer.

Bosetti has published more than ten CD's under his own name on labels as Errant Bodies Press, Monotype, Rossbin and Sedimental and many others in different collaborative settings."
