Marco Quaresimin – double bass and objets
An organic engine shakes the ground and the bodies all around..
Shining water surface.
Aqcuatic plant spirals.
Forest of bones.
Immerse in a dance of wawes, sliding between thousand of possible variations within a slow and continuous movement.
The rumble of a boat along a black river.
Marco Quaresimin solo works are focused on relations between sound, time, space and movement. He has been playingsolo concerts since 2011, exploring different forms, from free improvisation to graphic scores, from free jazz-like explosions of energy to very calm and contemplating minimalistic long form. He has performed in Italy and France in theaters, art galleries and open-air events. His new performances are based on the balance between continuum soundand constant micro variations, with a specific focus on breath. They are sensory experiences which explores the visceral quality of the sound with the listener, opening up a communication between the resonance in our human bodies and the vibrations of the space. www.marcoquaresimin.com
