“Chiaroscuro” – new album from Federica Colangelo and Acquaphonica

Tuesday, October 11th, 2016

September 16, 2016 the publishing company Alfa Music released another album of ACQUAPHONICA, whose leader is Federica Colangelo – “CHIAROSCURO”.

My musical and artistic tendencies were evolving long before they were in my direct consciousness. When learning classical music as a young pianist I particularly loved Bartok, Gershwin and Stravinsky. When visiting an art gallery my gaze always fellon the work of the modern and contemporary artists, Escher, Chagall, Daliand Picasso. Throughout my jazz studies my respect for the lineage of great players was always balanced by my attraction to the musical borderlands, where the jazz tradition is refracted by contemporary and world music. The perception of jazz as a process rather than a fixed object, and a culturalas well as a purely musical phenomenon, constantly informs my playingand composition. The music on this album, rather than trying to fit into a conventional generic box, aims to draw together threads from diverse genres. With all this in mind I invite the listener then to let go of any preconceptionsand let the listening experience of the music guide their enjoyment of it.

They will feature subjects like: ‘How to get the web working for you’ (how to employ the social media effectively as an artist and as a festival), a panel on music and sponsoring, and a crossover to world music in the Blend Café or…. Jazz in Poland, an insight into the scene with Marcin Jacobson (Independent Entertainment Professional, PL) and  Małgorzata Smółka (MMusic, NL).

There will also be a number of short pitches by copyright organizations like Buma, Sena and Norma, but also from a TV station like Djazztv (‘What can I do to get my material on TV myself?’). In addition to the panels there will be a Dutch matchmaking program, offering musicians the opportunity to meet a large group of bookers and copyright organizations briefly.
