flussoReflusso

FlussoReflusso (2019) is a work of live cinema performance produced/composed for the occasion of the quincentenary of the death of Leonardo di Vinci. The work reanimates and revisits the ebb and flow of Leonardo’s drawings on scales from the metabolic/anatomic to the atmospheric. The project enriches the iconic Leonardo art-science residues through redrawn equivalents of our interior-exterior flows from the aorta to the deluge paired with the sonic expression of transcoded bioinformatics to sound.

The bilingual narrative underscores Leonardo’s prophesies that foreshadow our current struggle for balance with the natural world.  The intent of the work is a suspension of audience in the immersive moment of art-science practice across time.

Co-Produced by the 92nd Street Y and Stanford University’s Symposium on Music and the Brain.
