Alain De Filippis, poetic experimental sounds
Alain De Filippis creations inevitably overstep the partitions
of art practices. Self-made musician, he worked for theater, investigated
new sound effect technics, new soundscapes and concerts-intallations.
His first published composition has been recorded for a series of
mini-cd (Le Cinéma pour l'Oreille, Metamkine 1993) and was
called « Ton Dieu ne s'appelle-t-il pas égo ?
» (Isn't it your God'name Ego?). He worked with Serge Boulier
& la Cie Bouffou Théâtre for Tête d'Affriche
(1996) and Petites Musiques de Bruits (1999) (a CD has been
released on Ground Fault Recordings, in 2001). He revered Robert
Wyatt and he created « Heli Plop » for a CD-Book at
Æncrages & Co edition, re-issued in the compilation CD
« MW pour Robert Wyatt
» at InPolySons. On his way on experimental music, he met
the guitarist Keith Rowe. The Web zine City Vox indicated: «
sound designer and decorator, activities and tags that mask most
of the essential: a fascinating and poetic little inner music that
guides achievments and findings of Alain De Filippis ».
His references ? Varese, Zappa, The Residents (without them, he
would never dare)...
