Obiter dictum

« Sono sempre più convinto che nella società contemporanea ci sia [...] l'adozione di una prospettiva culturalistica, finalizzata a legittimare la realtà sociale nascente.
 
Assistiamo sempre più a fantomatici richiami alle origini e alla purezza [...] che sono in realtà proiezioni all'indietro di necessità attuali; il passato usato, manipolato in funzione dei bisogni presenti.
 
Nel mondo della globalizzazione sembra che la paura di essere uguali agli altri ci porti a creare tante identità chiuse, culture serrate da recinti invalicabili.
 
È nei mondi "nuovi" creati dall'immaginazione che gli individui riformulano le proprie identità e le proprie culture. [...] i territori cessano di essere i contenitori privilegiati delle culture. [...] La deterritorializzazione costituisce una delle forze più potenti del mondo contemporaneo in quanto coincide con lo spostamento e la dispersione di masse di individui che elaborano [...] sentimenti di appartenenza e di esclusione nei confronti sia della nuova dimora sia della patria originaria.
 
La nascita [...] di gruppi identitari, fondamentalisti, chiusi e fortemente legati al vincolo territoriale, sembrerebbe una risposta al fenomeno del mescolamento culturale, in quanto questi gruppi vivono uno spaesamento, assistono a una perdita dell'identificabilità e quindi acutizzano la voglia di identificare. [...] una lotta di identità, territorio contro l'inevitabile, complessa e meravigliosa ibridazione culturale e meticciamento. »

«Mitizzazione delle identità» di Andrea Staid
Da «Antropologia e pensiero libertario» in «A Rivista Anarchica» N. 398, maggio 2015

 

Q3

Envisions. Enacts. Entertains.
«At least half of what you care about music is what your ears bring to it.»

Q3 functions as a hub representing and promoting different artists;
Q3 is a networking platform catalysing interaction among musicians from Ticino, Switzerland and abroad;
Q3 is also a cultural agent staging musical productions in Southern Switzerland.

Founded in 2004 by the three musician brothers Nolan, Simon and Brian Quinn, the original trio Q3 expands to a musicians' collective in 2008. The clever synthesis of drum'n'bass and jazz music quickly introduces the original trio to audiences in Europe. It repeatedly publishes record and video productions and is awarded various international prizes dedicated to jazz music. Q3 is commissioned original soundtracks to historic films «Nanook of the North» (Robert Flaherty, 1922) and mountain film masterpieces of the 1920s and 30s. Artists Kurt Rosenwinkel, Bill Carrothers, Olivier Ker Ourio, Tino Tracanna and Max De Aloe cooperate with Q3. Pianist Gabriele Pezzoli has been contributing to the collective since 2008. Q3 produces the festivals «Sonvico in Jazz», «Suono di una notte di mezza estate», «Jazz nelle nostre piazze», and TLL>LUG/LUG>TLL.

Bergfilm

Q3 perform their own specifically composed soundtrack to a live screening of excerpts from silent mountain film masterpieces of the 1920s and 30s. Q3 have undertaken a six-handed composition of a both motivic and impressionist soundtrack featuring their landmark grooves, humour and inclination towards form and structure, turning it into a further quintessential Q3 musical experience.

Blue 2147

At least half of what you care about music is what your ears bring to it. That's part of the reason why people like BLUE 2147: there's something in it for everybody. Someone told us it reminded them of Pink Floyd, while we thought we were playing chill beats under richly reverbed Herbie-esque lines. So just name it as you want. What you'll never guess, though, is that it's completely improvised on the spot.

> Colossus of Rhodes - our new album! Available on CD, custom USB drive, digital download.

> Six O'Clock · Gli aperitivi in Fabbrica - our steady gig featuring a new guest every first Thursday of the month. Brighten your happy hour with a choice from over fifty brands of beer! Only at Osteria La Fabbrica, Via Locarno 43, Losone.

BRaun

How analog can digital go?

BRaun play on instruments what you'd expect to be programmed. Imagine many facets of current djing falling into one live set–then unhinge this from the grid of programme and machine. Give it back the randomness of living beings, give it a human face. You get BRaun, recklessly making it all up as they go along, every night anew.
