Unbearable Winsdom - 02/05/2012 -

My recording Unbearable Winsdom, has been released on Gruenrekorder's compilation Somewhere on the Edge, which marks the 100th release of the label.
Consisting of 47 tracks with a total duration of over 531 minutes, Somewhere on the Edge is a collection of pieces on political, cultural, ecological or scientific themes and it’s free download.

This soundscape has been realized only with field recordings from Buddhist sacred places in Italy and Nepal. This work would like to underline the unbearable troubles, which a great culture is going through after the Chinese invasion.
Field recordings: Pietro Riparbelli & Raffaele Vanni in 2011

Three days of silence - The mountain of the Stigmata | Pietro Riparbelli
Gruen 102 | Audio CD MP3 & FLAC
6 Tracks (47′13″)
CD (500 copies)

“Three days of silence” is conceived as complete phenomenological experience of listening. I have been three days within the Sanctuary of La Verna on the top of a mountain called “the mountain of the Stigmata” in Tuscany. I’ve lived together with the monks recording and attending the ceremonies and the sounds of the place trying to penetrate in a dimension of pure contemplation.

a cura di Leandro Pisano

He tries to come to us
is an audio visual performance and at the same time a demonstration of an investigation realized within the former mental hospital of S G in volterra. This investigation wants to focus the attention on the work left us by the patient N O …who, by scratching the wall of the yard of the building, wrote and drew a very complex story, apparently without any sense but certainly a great message.

This opera finished only with the end of the wall.

This work is composed of a video realized with radio videocamera and of a sound composition achieved with sound sources and short wave radio signals recorded inside the building.

Yannick Franck & Pietro Riparbelli – Whinny Muir - 17/06/2011 -

This work was created using short wave radio signals, feedback, voice, various effects and filters as well as different work of the Italian Baroque composer Alessandro Scarlatti as central sound source. Scarlatti (1660-1725) is especially famous for his operas and chamber cantatas and is considered the founder of the "Italian overture" form.

The title of this album refers to the Lyke-Wake Dirge, a 14th-century English funeral chant from north Yorkshire (which chorus is usng by Yannick Franck on the last part). It is a warning about the lack of empathy and generosity and their repercussions within the travel of the soul on its way to heaven.

K11 & Philippe Petit “A-ghast”

Previously unreleased (Boring Machines)

Pietro Riparbelli (aka K11) and Philippe Petit are interested in creating ‘haunting’ soundtracks, giving the feeling that some ghosts are lurking around. Their sound is heavy and claustrophobic, and “A-ghast” should serve as an appetiser for The Haunting Triptych, their new album released on Boring Machines... Residual spookiness...

THE DICHOTOMY OF THE VISIBLE AND INVISIBLE IN THE SONIC PANORAMA
Pietro Riparbelliʼs study of the phenomenology of perception with particular reference to the dichotomy
between the visible and the invisible is closely connected to his conceptual address of the ʻsonic landscapeʼ.
He delves into deep investigation of particular places, taking in the history of the location as well as the
current site specifics to reconfigure a sonic panorama (or diorama) through its inherent transcendental
aspects in order to create a dimension beyond the purely or merely sonic: a total perceptive and receptive
capturing of the place and its visible and invisible tangents, transporting the listener to a new and hitherto
literally unheard form, kind and ʻcontentʼ of sensory experience and therewith: perception. From a specific
time and place, to another (listening) time and place and in between, found (!) in Riparbelliʼs transmutation
and compostional interpretation: an altogether new and invisible (maybe even: non-existing) ʻvistaʼ…
