Breaking off her extensive European tour calling into such cities as Madrid, Barcelona, Bilbao, Paris Prague, Bratislava and Budapest, the New York based composer, performer and sound designer Lea Bertucci was in Barga this evening for a site-specific soundscape performance utilising the spaces and rooms inside the Elisa Restaurant in Barga Vecchia.
Lea Bertucci is a composer, performer and sound designer whose work describes relationships between acoustic phenomena and biological resonance. In addition to her instrumental practice with woodwind instruments, she often incorporates multi-channel speaker arrays, electroacoustic feedback, extended instrumental technique and tape collage. In recent years, her projects have expended toward site-responsive and site-specific sonic investigations of architecture.
Deeply experimental, her work is unafraid to subvert musical expectation.
As a solo artist, she has performed extensively across the US and Europe with presenters such as PS1 MoMA, Blank Forms, Pioneer Works, The Kitchen, Roulette, The Walker Museum, Caramoor, The Renaissance Society, Chicago, Sound of Stockholm Festival, and Unsound Festival, Krakow. She is a 2016 MacDowell Fellow in composition and a 2015 ISSUE Project Room Artist-in-Residence. In 2018, she received a commission from the American Composers’ Forum for a new percussion trio as well as a brass octet commissioned by the Levy Gorvy Gallery in New York.
