From Sept. 16 to Dec. 2, 2024, Milan’s San Fedele Auditorium and Church will host the fall edition of INNER_SPACES, the electronic music and audiovisual arts festival since 2012 a reference point for experimentation and interdisciplinary research. Six new events feature world premieres, commissioned by San Fedele Musica: Laus Angelorum by Christian Fennesz, Requiem by Fauré-Corrado and Canone infinito extended by Lorenzo Senni, the latter in co-production with Linecheck festival. Some unavoidable protagonists of electronic music present live unreleased projects, such as Drew McDowall (Psychic TV, Coil), Kevin Richard Martin (The Bug) and Shackleton, along with names increasingly established on the international scene such as Huerco S., or fast-rising, including Nadia Struiwigh and Wata Igarashi, not forgetting the pioneers of the genre (Èliane Radigue).

The theme of the autumn program draws its inspiration from the pictorial procedure of chiaroscuro: in addition to its technical meaning in the visual arts as a play on variations of brightness and projections of shadow to give relief to an image, it is also the term for the emphasis intended to be given in the performance of musical works to certain sections by means of an appropriate contrast of tones, harmonic timbres. It is therefore an artifice that highlights the existence of the symbolic-coloristic dimension in sound perception.

In some events in the new season of INNER_SPACES, the chiaroscuro component is employed in the juxtaposition of opposing elements (musical genres, sound sources). In others, in the presence of contrasting tones between the two parts of the themed evening, sometimes in terms of a gradual transition from shadow to light and vice versa. Finally, chiaroscuro can take on a metaphorical order, a representation of opposing symbolic realities, such as darkness and light, life and death.
