Work presented during the personal exhibition of Pier Alfeo (well know also for his moniker Dubit) "Incisione su Silenzio" at the gallery Doppelgaenger of Bari, Italy (22 February - 22 May 2019). The compositions have been realized through algorithmic programming using the Wolfram Language of the Mathematica and CSound software, during the studies at electronic musical composition courses of the "N. Piccinni" Conservatory of Bari, mentor Francesco Scagliola.
The collection "WORKS 2016-2018" includes the first three electro-acoustic compositions created during the academic years, a period in which the algorithmic computer programming technique was learned using the Wolfram language in the domain of the Mathematica software. This technique involves the construction of sound on a mathematical-computer level taking into account the structural parameters of the sound itself, such as: attack times, duration, intensity, height, envelope and spatialization, using granulators, additive synthesis and subtractive synthesis. The system consists in the creation of data matrices which are then appropriately interpreted by the CSound software which renders them in audio format, a material that was subsequently organized and edited for composition purposes.
The intent during both programming and composition was to arrive at a sound that preserved a certain warmth, a certain organicity (contrary to the coldness of the technique itself), this was possible by intercepting a series of trends and classes of numbers that exhibit a fluid behavior, reflecting the internal motions of nature.
The plays and influences that led to the creation of these works are by composers such as Karlheinz Stockhausen, Pierre Schaeffer, Luigi Nono, Bruno Maderna, Iannis Xenakis, Igor ’Fedorovic Stravinsky, Gyorgy Ligeti, R. Murray Schafer, etc...
In "All That Fall" a single sample of origin was used, the recording of a crackling fireplace, while in "The Never Spoken Words" all sound generations were created by processing only recordings of voices and vocalizations.

Spiritual research and constant need for inner transformation. These are the key elements in the compositional style of Dubit, Pier Alfeo's moniker, the Apulian countryside-based electronic musician and producer whose Backwards is proud to issue "Vitriol", his second full length.
This ten-track album, which resumes the Backwards' CD-series started in 2013 with Fabio Orsi's “Endless Autumn”, has taken more than one year of work, using both analogue instruments (such as Spring Reverb, pedals, [D]ronin, Moog etc ...) and digital synthesis techniques. For its realization, Dubit also built by himself acoustic instruments composed of metal elements, strips, strings, barrels, amphorae as resonance boxes, and used prepared pianos, traditional Spanish instruments, didgeridoo, harmonica, snare drums and cymbals as well.
As in an alchemical process made of sounds, “Vitriol” blends in with powerful dark ambient, post-industrial music, some elements from techno and field recordings, drawing distopic landscapes in the sky. It's as if Raison d'être met Shackleton in the recording room to create a soundtrack for the end of the world.

The past can only recognize its own prediction. The future is not anticipated; it is a state of non-recognition, non-association. Continuity is the past and the past is only a memory, where the time is no more than a word. Capture experiences of sound and mark milestones in time for the sole purpose of saving them again.
This idea is born from the necessity of silence and the study of its interaction with noise. It takes shape in the city of Berlin and continues to evolve in various locations around Europe, both in conception and composition. Through the organic unity of field recordings it was made possible to encapsulate actual sounds in a timeless bubble and therefore documenting the experience on physical medium.
Amongst the detunes and the distorted memories, sounds play, communicate & coexist.
Therapy - State of mind
The intent is the opposite of incertitude, such to express an artistic and communicative concept in a clear and recognizable format, silence. Fragmenti is a concept of information sharing; a documentary of today that now is yesterday; a translation of memories, images, feelings, relationships, the means to an end, languages, dreams and nightmares, our interior conflict, our ego, our being. It is the contrast between light and dark, black and white; their developing interactions and their relationship..
This album tells my story and your story. This is the world in which we live...

"This Concept Album is used to mean a point between two personality from unknown origins, that is desirable over purely one state or the other, such as a balance between the metaphysical Law and Chaos — law by itself being overly controlling, chaos being overly unmanageable, balance being the point that minimizes the negatives of both."
