spoken word

cinema

In French, the phrase Histoire(s) du cinéma is an untranslatable word play: histoire means both “history” and “story,” and the s in parentheses gives the possibility of a plural. Therefore, the phrase Histoire(s) du cinéma simultaneously means The History of Cinema, Histories of Cinema, The Story of Cinema and Stories of Cinema.

The method followed by Alessio Gianardi, cinema and photography expert, is inspired by the 8-part video project Histoire(s) du cinéma’s Jean-Luc Godard (1998) in which he tries to compose his own personal vision of the history of cinema using images of institutional films, cutting, editing, modifying its meaning and to stimulate the viewer to create his own.

Joe Combo doesn’t talk like your average radio DJ. His program is called Fantasia, and it lives in the cracks, in-betweens, and dead-air—the places where the mind tends to wander. That’s where Joe Combo can be found, with a kaleidoscope in hand, thinking about the geometry of combination.

techno

experimental

The Swiss-Italian label -OUS comes from a world of wonderfully crafted electronic music. Their founding philosophy consists of electronica, over bass-infected beats, deconstructed techno, and experimental pop. For Combo, they present the show TRANSCENDOUS, a place for the in-betweens and arounds—a suffix to another place, to lift you to another world, -OUS.

Ambiti is a deceptively straightforward program. It explores sounds throughout the world and within the mind. Where is beyond? Les Giants select records of traditional, ambient, experimental sounds.

On its surface, the show offers an introduction to artists from Turin-based label Gang of Ducks. But it is better described as an eclectic blend of electric sounds. The collective is known for a holistic approach, and hybrid mixing of music. Yes, Centro Delfino is an introduction to their roster of artists, but it is also an introduction to the label’s sonic politics, and the generosity with which it makes its inspirations, affiliations, and alliances clear.
