Percussion concert by and with Ivano Torre.

It's a concert for drums, “bladephone”, bells, and vocals, all strictly natural. Most of my works draw inspiration from nature and the relationship that man has with it. My first solo job (1986) had the simply title ‘percussions’. It was imaginative music, that is, music that projects you into a world of changing and fluid images. About 30 years ago I actively participated in the search for birds in Ticino Canton, listening to their singing and trying to derive rhythmic phrases, which can be then developed and played on drums. From there I have always been interested in the animal world, their singing, how they scream and how they move. My playing behind drums is dance, fun, movement, it is flow and it is a little bit like the animal world. I use this feature to become a kind of storyteller with percussion and with a thick search for ‘unconventional’ sounds.

Foresta is a journey into the human depths, it is a forest of sounds surrounded by the strangest and most unpredictable animal figures. A myriad of rhythms that chase and cross each other, generating the forest in which we are immersed.
