RIVA Project 2021

Along the -fermata- (2019-2020) is a synesthetic installation of visual art and musical scores; the fruit of a research on relational ecology of plants growing along the banks of the Arno River. Freely drawing by hand the signs emerging from the spaces left by common reed, ribwort plantain, and pondweed found along the river banks, Stromberg graphically transposed the empty and filled spaces resulting from their growth, or when they sway in the wind, or from their interaction. This led to musical scores performed by Renato Grieco (double bass), Francesco Pellegrino (saxophone and clarinet), and Francesco Toninelli (percussions/vibes).

These scores are neither classic compositions, nor pure improvisations; these scores and their refined translation into sound are a true homage to the transitory nature of vegetation growing along the river and highlight the human-plant interaction as a musical potential.

Residenza d'artista di Kirsten Stromberg - Progetto RIVA

LA RIVA: ALONG THE
Artist/Composer: Kirsten Stromberg
Performers: Francesco Toninelli, Renato Grieco, Francesco Pellegrino
An installation and performance of graphic scores inspired by the relational ecology of plants along the
banks of the Arno River in Florence. Working with drawings that trace the spaces and movements between
complex growth structures, they form the basis of graphic musical scores from which performers will activate.
The instruments include: wind, percussion, violencello and voice. Neither entirely classical structured
composition, nor entirely improvised, this project touches upon the relations between natural, interior and
social structures, as well as musical and visual translations, highlighting the interplay of human/plant
relationships, and pausing to listen to the music of an area of Florence that is often ignored.
