Enrico Malatesta is an Italian percussionist and sound researcher active in the field of experimental music, sound intervention and performance. His practice explores the relations between sound, space and body, the vitality of materials and the morphology of surfaces, with particular attention to the percussive acts. His research path is characterized by a strong emphasis on the ability to produce multiple information with simple actions, the motion and definition of the experience of listening and sustainability of the presence of the performer through the sound.
For our Quarantine Workout series we have the pleasure to present two previously unreleased scores by Enrico Malatesta. These exercises are about time and the endurance of certain conditions; the first one emphasizes the ‘relationship’ with our mobile devices, while the second one deals with the shifts in quality of our body.
