ACTIONREACTION is an interactive project at the conjunction between the abstract painting of Pippo Lionni and the contemporary music of Sergio Corbini, Stefano Franceschini and Silvia Bolognesi. On the floor of the studio, Lionni uses spackle knives to paint large scale black and white canvasses. The recorded sounds of the painting process structure the acoustic and electronic works that Bolognesi, Corbini and Franceschini are composing while reading the abstract forms of the painting as if a musical score. The creative process continues when the composed music fills the studio energizing the next painting session in the cycle. Each final composition is a stratification of paint and sound layers. Thus, while the creative process is constantly evolving, the basic idea is that the painting has both a visual and audio form, and musical composition is at the same time influencing and being influenced by the painting – giving the name ACTIONREACTION.
