This week, Nicola Privato and Giacomo Lepri present “Stacco”, a new and playful musical instrument based on magnets.
Stacco is a new knid of Magnetic Score that interacts with the player by attracting and repelling magnetic spheres and ferromagnetic objects. It is a playful instrument that allows the performer to control fine musical details if needed, but also to wonder freely into ferromegnetic sonic realms. During the lab, Giacomo and Nicola will present the ideas behind Stacco and elaborate on its design and building process, and demo a few patches including FM synthesis and Neural Synthesis models. Finally, we will all jam together on Stacco and other magnetic instruments!
