LUCA LEGGERO Over 425,000 ways to make noise with your smartphone

Fri Jul 15, 2011 07:00 - Fri Jul 15, 2011

New York, New York
United States of America

LUCA LEGGERO Over 425,000 ways to make noise with your smartphone FRIDAY JULY 15, 7PM Free Admission
“Not really understood in his hometown, Luca Leggero is an inexplicable phenomenon existing in one of the Italian fortresses of conservatism, and definitely a sparkle of hope for the small town of Lucca, Italy. I myself haven’t fully understood yet what he is doing. His work benefits from the unlimited boundaries of the net and from the resistance he finds in the physical environment he lives in. Doing what he does in the place he does it, is one of the most revolutionary things I can think of. He is therefore a friend particularly welcome to Microscope…and to New York!” A M
We welcome new media artist and musician Luca Leggero from Italy for a special night of sound performance. Leggero will present for the first time in the US his new project Over 425,000 ways to make noise with your smartphone, a sound improvisational performance made entirely by using a cell phone and a loop-station. Through the non-conventional use of the smartphone’s apps, he creates ever-changing sound textures by alternating free, ambient and junk-pop deliriums. Additionally, iPod clouds, a looped visual piece inspired by Cory Arcangel’s Super Mario Clouds will be on view.
Luca Leggero is an Italian new media artist and musician. His work is known for offering a personal new reading of art history. His project loves, offers electronic reinterpretations of classic artworks made by other net artists as well as his own works such as Malevich HTML, an HTML-based version of Malevich’s Black Square and Fluxlines, where Leggero shows only 1-pixel-wide lines out of 37 short Fluxus films playing. He is also a member of Italian multi-media collective and avant-POP, hack-rock, proto-noise, indie rock band MAIS. More info at
