Marco Fusinato - Default Import

Default Import

The entire content of my iTunes is made up of WAV files from solo guitar/distortion recordings that have ended there by default when importing from the soundcard into the DAW. The track listings make no sense as they are imported in code; a mess of live recordings, studio out-takes, incomplete sessions and other abandoned disasters. This track is a random grab of material from the default import.

Marco Fusinato is a contemporary artist and musician whose work has taken the form of installation, photographic reproduction, performance and recording. His overall aesthetic project combines allegorical appropriation with an interest in the intensity of a gesture or event. His work has been presented in many exhibitions, including All the World’s Futures, the 56th International Art Exhibition of the Venice Biennale, 2015; Soundings: A Contemporary Score, the first ever exhibition of sound at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, 2013 and Sonic Youth: Sensational Fix (2008-2010) a travelling exhibition around European museums of artists that have collaborated with the NYC rock band, Sonic Youth. As a musician Fusinato explores the idea of noise as music, using the electric guitar and associated electronics to improvise intricate, wide-ranging and physically affecting frequencies. His on-going series of long-duration noise-guitar performances Spectral Arrows, described as a monumental aural sculpture, first performed at The Glasgow International Arts Festival Glasgow in 2012 has since been performed all around the world. He has released LP’s on labels such as Bocian (Poland), Planam (Italy), Spring Press (USA) and No Fun (USA).
