LAPO SORRIDE (he/they) is an interdisciplinary artist, fragmented and polyphonic creature. Focusing on sustainable practices they creates immersive environments and portal-like objects made of rags, clay, dirt, branches and wax, scents as well as printed digital landscapes and granular surfaces, implemented with sound manipulation. Lapo is a digital surfer interested in the potentiality of easter eggs, rabbit-holes and community building within the realm of the dark web.
As Kinked composes experimental music and curate mix series for Radio Sygma and 00185fm.eu. Is also known as the tenco-grime lyricist Dori Sorride

ABSENCE

ABSENCE chapter V is a live-set showcased a shelter of emodrawings and organic textures as a speculative ritual in which granular desires shapes the time-space.

“My wishes can be compared to the desires of therapeutic entities behind the device’s terminal shell...”

Inspired by the 5th chapter of the book Absence written by the author Michail Bavarov, this live set is a performative act of becoming in which words and granular synthesis match with exponential bass melodies and the peculiar sound of falling objects. Inside you may recognize the faded borders of digital gardens, the high frequencies colors of metallic forests and fleeting lonely voices of FM entities.  

Absence also appears in a loudest scenario (high pressure sound). In this we still find eerie LLM voices briefly emerging to share confessions from the machine , morphing together with the peculiar tone of FFT manipulations, creating a specific space-time in which we will expand our bodies (corpi exterminati, extesi* see Massimo Canevacci) to receive stimuli from the surrounding environment. This suspends the logocentric selves, allowing for a more embodied experience that welcomes waves of sounds as living partners in this worldling.
