๐„† JAE video excerpts ๐„‡

I created a new playlist on my YouTube channel with the video excerpts of the performance of "JAE" at the ZJCM of Hangzhou, China, before the COVID-19 global alarm.

๐„† Coronavirus ๐„‡

Global COVID-19 emergency came in the way.

Let's try to be safe BUT never forget who we are.

Celebrating the New Year: effects of a Chinese flower tea thinking about one of the greatest pioneers of the American Minimalism in music (what?) + a high-five to The Who (who?).

This composition belongs to the cycle "Our Ancestors" that will be uploaded on an irregular basis. In this cycle there are original compositions of Sara Zamboni and re-compositions to celebrate the gifts we received from our ancestors. (You can also call them re-interpretations, re-mixes, re-creations, re-elaborations if you like but NOT covers, please!).

Sara Zamboni & Elena Lorenzi

are ready to strike back!

It is time for Sara Zamboni & Elena Lorenzi to work together again. After months of planning and exchange of ideas, they are ready to embark in a very big thing: a new music theatre performance for voice and fixed media.

Part one is already there: do you remember "Dark Vocalise"?

We will restart working from that. I will compose two more pieces that explore in different angles the nuances of Elena's voice and expressivity, in a new sound and light design that will be more immersive and spectacular. Stay tuned for the coming months!

World premiere of

DARK VOCALISE

'Spring Festival 2019'

The 52th edition of the Spring Festival in The Hague (NL) hosts the result of a six-months intense collaboration between Elena Lorenzi and Sara Zamboni. They know each other since long time and this work combines their love for details and their commitment to the musical act.

DARK VOCALISE is a composition for live voice and recorded voice modified and re-composed on a 5-channels fixed media. Elena Lorenzi is a versatile performer due to her strong lyrical background. She masters various vocal techniques, styles and is also sensitive to non-verbal forms of communication.

The staging of this work includes also precise instructions for light design, sound design and gestures. Movements have been developed in collaboration with the performer and notated on a score in a theatre script form. A longer music theatre work is planned in 2020-2021. Dark vocalise is one of the components of the programme.

TECHNO GISELLE

is ready to kick asses

Techno Giselle is a composition commissioned by the 'schrit_tmacher festival 2019' as a contribution for the salon "Romantiek Nu" curated by Karin Post. Premiered on April 6th 2019 in SCHUNCK* Glaspaleis Museum, Heerlen (NL).

In our imagination determined by the homonym Romantic Ballet, Giselle is a young, beautiful and shy peasant girl who falls in love with a rich guy betrothed to a rich woman. Giselle is not very lucky in the original story so I decided to rewrite the libretto completely before composing my interpretation of this famous work. In my imagination she is just a woman who likes dancing, she meets some magic creatures that do just two things in their life: dance all night and kill their betrayers. One more detail: who said that Giselle is a perfect ballerina?

Voice & tape work in progress


After years of latency due to independent careers and personal development, the voice and composition duo formed by Elena Lorenzi & Sara Zamboni strikes back without compromises in this engaging and obscure work: a journey into the deepest shades of Elena's voice.
