Immagini Per Diana Baylon: preview on Soundcloud

2

As with the spellbinding Musica Endoscopica, this issue of Immagini Per Diana Baylon – one of her three known soundtracks for art installations – helps to place Teresa as Italy’s answer to Daphne Oram; that is, a pioneering female experimenter operating in a male dominated field since the ’50s, and an artist/musician/technician who was magnetically drawn to the emerging possibilities of analogue electronics (although she would also expand into computer composition as soon as the opportunity arose).

Here is what bookmat.com says about this new issue I curated in collaboration with Die Schachtel [boomkat.com/products/immagini-per-diana-baylon]. Remastered from the original tapes, foil-blocked metallic print jacket with fold-out insert of liner notes and photographs.

You may listen to some excerpts on Soundcloud.

IMMAGINI PER DIANA BAYLON (1972): new Die Schachtel issue/album

Teresa Rampazzi’s third vinyl record with Die Schachtel (2016) contains just one music work. IMAGES FOR/IMMAGINI PER DIANA BAYLON is a stereophonic piece of 31’50”, to be played in loop during Diana Baylon’s exhibition. The music is a soundscape for the exhibition Diana Baylon, 23 November – 14 December 1972 (catalog by Lara-Vinca Masini) held at the Modern Art Gallery Il Fiore in Florence in 1972 (http://www.dianabaylon.it/mostre/). Diana Baylon (1920-2013), a friend of Rampazzi’s, was a cross-disciplinary artist from Florence who transformed various materials into figurative and, later in the ‘60s, abstract and programmatic art objects (ceramics, glass, metal, paper, paintings, graphics, jewellery).

IMMAGINI PER DIANA BAYLON was the third time that Teresa Rampazzi realized music for an exhibition. The first was also the very first experimental composition that Rampazzi and Ennio Chiggio realized in 1965, a sound collage for the opening of an exhibition of the Gruppo Enne at the International Biennale d’Arte in Venice. The second soundscape
piece, Environ (1970), was realized by Rampazzi for the presentation of a 360° round modular couch in foamed resin designed by Chiggio, presented at a furniture shop in Padova in 1970.
