19twelve by dīōd, features Moira Lo Bianco on piano and Quentin Chiappetta on electronics.

The suite is inspired by Kandinsky’s painting Composition 8, translating visual elements into music.  The resulting work, shaped by the painting’s geometric figures, concentric and convergent circles, stark lines and vibrant colors, is a multi-movement form, including the following pieces: Space, Concentric Force, The O circle, A line, A floating line, The Big Triangle, Composition life, Triangles: the way out. 

The association between the painting and life fills the geometric figures with a spiritual and profoundly human meaning.

Is the performing duo of composers Moira Lo Bianco and Quentin Chiappetta. Dedicated to bringing the living composer to the audience, dīōd champions the creation and performance of new works grounded in formal composition while expanding the concept of sound as musical expression. Utilizing both traditional and extended performance techniques for piano, electronics and the live manipulation of sound, dīōd is most comfortable in non-traditional settings, creating immersive works that surround an audience and turn the concert experience inside out.
