Metastring II: Un progetto di post-liuteria (IT)/ Metastring II: A new direction in musical instrument design (EN)

“Metastring” is an augmented electroacoustic monochord designed by Massimiliano Cerioni. The instrument presents a heavy solid body made to appropriately maintain the string mass and tension. By using 3D modelling and printing with the help of A3DLab Cerioni aims to realize an alternative prototype which can be resistant as well, but in the meantime can imply less efforts and time to be built. Also, 3D printing could lead to the making of really complex shapes, which are an advantage in therms of design.

Massimiliano Cerioni (Italy, 1986). Composer, sound-art performer, audio engineer. He studied electronic music with Michelangelo Lupone, and graduated from the A.

In 2013 He taught music at the Gullace Talotta high school in Rome. In 2014 he performed at ICMC in Athens. In 2015 he placed 1st in the Italian national arts prize competition Premio Abbado – category “electroacoustic music composition”, with the piece Oltre il carico di rottura dell’anima (2013). He has received artistic commissions by the Musical Researches Centre of Rome for writing two pieces for dance: ScontrINcontri in 2014 – music for a duet 2nd placed at Premio Roma Danza 2015 that has been written by the choreographer Valerio De Vita – and Molten Kinematics in 2016 – written for an improvisation made by the breaker Niels Storm Robitzky with the dancer Antonella Abbate. In 2016 he started working with the director and videomaker Andrea Alessi. He plays didgeridoo and custom-made instruments such as Metastring, an augmented electroacoustic monochord first appeared at Tempo Reale festival (Florence, Italy) in September 2017. In addition, he leads independent research projects about music technology design, audio spatialization and physical modelling synthesis.
