The Whale’s Divertissement

THE VIDEO Video for The Whale’s Divertissement, a suite for solo piano by Italian composer Matteo Sommacal, dedicated to Francesco Di Fiore. THE PROJECT The Whale’s Divertissement is a three movements suite inspired to some whale surfacing behaviors: “Breaching” is a fast and spectacular emersion, sometimes of the whole animal, that leaps out of the surface, jumps and heads straight out in the air and lands in the water with a dive. “Logging” is typically a group behaviour, that whales exhibit probably when at rest: the animals stay afloat, without forward movement at the surface, all heading in the same direction, as an expanse of logs in the water. “Flipperslapping” identifies the behaviours of certain whales that lift their flippers out of the water and then bring them down onto the surface, hard and fast in order to make a loud slap. (Matteo Sommacal) Music by Matteo Sommacal Piano Francesco Di Fiore Italy

Miniature 2011 – a journey

THE VIDEO On the occasion of Miniature 2011 completion I created this video, Miniature 2011 – a journey, animating all 53 Giorgio Gristina’s pictures. The soundtrack is Miniature N.50, Icarus, whose heart makes a journey flying over the 53 drawings. THE PROJECT In 2011 Italian pianist and composer Francesco Di Fiore composed a piano piece per week (for solo piano and piano four hands), creating a stunning collection of 53 compositions and 207 minutes of music. This amazing project is called Miniature 2011 and is completely downloadable for free at www.francescodifiore.com. Miniature 2011 has been followed by so many music lovers, musicians and artists waiting every week for the upcoming piece, some of them gave their personal contribution to the project with performances, reinterpretations and even artistic creations. The Italian painter Giorgio Gristina created every week an original drawing or painting inspired by each new piece. So at www.francescodifiore.com you will find Miniature’s 53 music sheets, mp3s (virtual audio clips created by Dutch composer Douwe Eisenga) and drawings. Music composed and performed by Francesco Di Fiore Pictures by Giorgio Gristina Italy More info

Metropoli (Metropolis)

THE VIDEO This is a clip from Visioni (2008), a project for piano, electronics and video by Francesco Di Fiore, pianist and composer. THE PROJECT Visioni is a multimedia project. Visioni musical characteristics are a fusion between piano tone and prerecorded electronics. It is a unitary work divided in eight very different, yet linked pieces. They are like book chapters; a tale about the story of the human evolution from early origin to the last, and inevitable, self-destruction. It is an ideal “life cycle” narrated with music through the eight pieces. Music by Francesco Di Fiore Italy More info
