Musician of images, likes playing with sounds and images, perception and thoughts. order.. to a sly smile on human's things.
Lòtzio is the newborn (late 2010) soloist audiovisual project from the italian musician, artist and producer Andrea Carlotto, based in Aosta Valley, in the west-northern side of Italy. The aim of the project is to investigate the dialogue between differents art's approaches, working with both digital an analogues tools and with differents forms of art : contemporary electroachoustic music and audiovisuals, but also photography, literature, dance, theatre, painting, sculpture, performance, installation... The concept of "Extended Listening" and its possibles declinations, is the primary goal for the compositional process, leading the entire work in the direction of creating multiples plans and possibilities of Listenig (perceptual, cognitive, istinctive, physical, social, cultural..) and playing with it, in order to suggest and evocate a multifaceted reflection about human things: from a very deep, subjective and intimate postion, leading to a metaphysical and instinctive sight of human beings, trying to evocate and unveil their complex system of relationships, and the interactions/reverberations between this two poles.
