Silvia Tarozzi and Deborah Walker
Lampo Performance Series
Dec 03, 2022 (4pm)

Reservations required; limited capacity SOLD OUT

Silvia Tarozzi and Deborah Walker perform the United States premiere of Canti di guerra, di lavoro e d’amore, a transcription and reinterpretation of Italian folksongs from their birthplace, the rural Emilia-Romagna region, for violin, cello, and voice.

Tarozzi and Walker reflect, "These songs come from the first decades of the twentieth century and from the period of World War II, but some of them have older roots. The melodies and especially the lyrics have been transformed over time through oral transmission and adapted to different social, working, and historical contexts. One of the strongest influences of our project is the repertory of songs sung by choirs of female rice field workers, called the Mondine."

Since 2010 the Graham Foundation has partnered with Lampo to produce an international performance series held at the Madlener House. Lampo, founded in 1997, is a nonprofit organization for experimental music and intermedia projects.

Note that seating for this performance is very limited. Reservations are required for entry, link to register via eventbrite coming soon. If you make a reservation and then are no longer able to attend, please cancel your reservation through Eventbrite or email info@grahamfoundation.org to release the spot to someone on the waiting list.

Silvia Tarozzi (b.1975, Bologna, Italy) and Deborah Walker (b.1981, Reggio Emilia, Italy) share a friendship that has evolved into a 20-year artistic partnership. Their music is characterized by a profound interplay, a focus on the acoustic qualities of their instruments, and the search for new possibilities in tunings, gestures, and sound. Together they have explored different musical forms and have worked in several varied projects, including Ensemble Dedalus, a contemporary music ensemble based in Montpellier, France, and Italian art pop band, Offlaga Disco Pax. Their long collaboration with composers Éliane Radigue, Pascale Criton, and Philip Corner have led to the creation of numerous new works. The duo has played at many international venues and festivals, including Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, Huddersfield, England; Fondation Cartier, Paris; Biennale Musica, Venezia; Angelica Festival, Bologna; Festival Musique Action, Nancy, France; Festival Futurs Composés, Paris; Fast Forward, Teatro Dell'Opera Di Roma, Rome; Tectonics, Glasgow; and Café Oto, London. Their recordings have been released on Potlatch and Unseen Worlds.

Lampo, established in 1997, supports artists working in new music, experimental sound, and other interdisciplinary practices. The Chicago-based organization's core activity has been and remains its performance series. Rather than making programming decisions around tour schedules, Lampo invites selected artists to create and perform new work, and then the organization provides the space, resources, and curatorial support to help them fulfill their vision. Lampo also organizes artist talks, lectures, screenings, and workshops, and publishes written and recorded documents related to its series.

Lampo gratefully acknowledges additional support provided by the Italian Cultural Institute of Chicago.
