BIO
Pier Giorgio De Pinto is a trans-disciplinary artist, a performer, a curator, a theorist and a media trainer.

De Pinto strongly uses new media as a thinking medium in which involves the audience, creating performative experiences and immersive environments.
De Pinto is currently studying an hybridisation practice between expanded cinema, performances, digital codes, infographics, mapping territories and human factors. A way to combine different physical and virtual media to tell a story through installations.
The sounds, the objects, the drawings, the coded movies and the interactive installations create spaces that become devices for developing a poetical and conceptual dimension through sensorial perception, reflections and awareness.
The gesture of the artist removes functionality, adds significance, proposes a new sense, subverts rules, creates a new order. A transmedia poetic that has the potential to perturb our certainties and our perception.

63 variations on the body.
Open call for Composers.
2nd edition.


AMAE/DE PINTO 58 (+1) INDICES ON THE BODY PROJECT.
63 variations on the body — Open call for Composers. 2nd edition.
Deadline October 31st, 2016

After the launch of the project on Soundcloud, featuring Jean-Luc Nancy’s recorded voice reading his treaty 58 Indices on the body, it was time to turn the text into music. For that reason, and in anticipation of the making of a documentary about the whole project, we opened a first call for composers to create a background track for each index/statement – written and recorded by the philosopher. It has been a success with more then 60 composers from all over the world sending us interesting compositions.

As we don't have completed the entire set of indices/statements we open the present new call to complete the 63 recordings.

Candidates will join our Soundcloud page where they can choose a statement, or more than one (up to a maximum of three), and develop a musical accompaniment while also sharing their track with other artists.

Application procedure
Participants follow the directions below.
The number of the indices still available, after the first call, are in total 26:
Numbers: 1/3/4/5/9/10/13/15/18/21/22/24/25/27/30/32/35/38/41/44//45/46/47/51/53/54

- Please go to the link as follows in which you can find the tracks to download and to listen to (please you have to scroll until finding the tracks with a number as icon, the other tracks with customized icons are the ones created already by other composers):
https://soundcloud.com/groups/58-indices-on-the-body

Eligibility and Selection
The 58(+1) Indices on the body open call is open to the up-and-coming generation of composers. There is no age limit.

Note that
– We are accepting electronic applications only.
– The selected tracks featured in the documentary will be only one each index/statement even though we leave all the tracks on our group; also the ones not selected via this call.
It is mandatory that the tracks have to contain Nancy’s voice but the voice can’t be distorted nor manipulated in any possible way and each track has to be neither shorter than 20 seconds, nor longer then 7 minutes.
