I am thrilled to announce the completion a new sound installation for presentation at the Acquario Civico di Milano, from the 14th-19th April. The work was commissioned by Paola Bjaringer, founder and director the Slott Gallery in Paris for the exhibition "Préliminaires" as part of the Salone Del Mobile in Milan. It will accompany design work by Matali Crasset and Florence Jaffrain.
For much more information and directions, please visit the Slott Gallery website: Slott I have included a short program note about the work, below, and have posted a short compilation mix on my Soundcloud page or download the long version (mp3 28mb).
Thanks for visiting! Best to all. Leon.
“Clemente”, Sound installation for the Acquario Civico di Milano and Slott Gallery
“Clemente” is a festival of sound in space. A liquid space. A world equally ample and weightless, surrounded by subtle light and filtered tonalities. It offers us reflections on our origins and parallels with our future. It is a universe of frequencies, where sonic communication seems to have evolved to a minimum, becoming undeniably tailor-made and masterfully efficient for those living and interacting in this element.
In parts of this work we can hear: The Humpback Whale (Megaptera Novaeangliae), Blue Whale (Balaenoptera Musculus), Orca Whale (Orcinus Orca), Sperm Whale (Physeter Macrocephalus), Pilot Whale (Globicephala melaena), Minke Whale (Balaenoptera acutorostrata), Risso's Dolphin (Grampus Griseus), Bottlenose Dolphin (Tursiops Truncatus) and the Grey Seal (Halichoerus Grypus).
St. Clemente is the name of the island off the California coast where I spent many quiet days on the ocean with my father. This work is dedicated to him, along with my appreciation and thanks to Paola Bejeringer and Slott Gallery for commissioning this project.
Our presence on and in the seas, including the noises that we create and inject into it has an impact on the life and well being of that world and on ours.
I had the great pleasure of spending yesterday afternoon at Radio France, being interviewed and recording my composition Mexico, for flute trio and electronics, with the Trio d'Argent, for whom I wrote the piece. The broadcast will be on Bruno Letort's weekly contemporary music show entitled Tapage Nocturne, on France Musique.
Broadcast date is on the night of Sunday/Monday (March 7th-March 8th) at midnight. Here is the link: Tapage Nocturne.
More information on this piece, sample electronics and the score can be found on my site here.
Hope that you can listen in. If not, I believe that the show will be availiable as a podcast for the entire week following.
As part of the Beethoven Festival, Susanne Kessel, Markus Karas (organ) and I will present a concert devoted to Olivier Messiaen. A multi-faceted program in honor of Messiaen's 100th. year of birth including works by Debussy, Stockhausen, Kurtag, electronic and acoustic compositions by Leon Milo, among others complete this evening in a very personal portrait of this major French composer. The Bonn Munster cathedral with the great Klais organ is this the ideal venue for this concert.
