CCRZ hosted the presentation of the album Niton released by Pulver & Asche Records, with a live performance of the three musicians Zeno Gabaglio, Luca Xelius Martegani and El Toxyque. Showcasing a veritable orchestra of analogue synthesisers, samplers, gongs, Chinese cymbals, bowed cellos, baritone saxes, Spanish guitars, organs, etc., Niton involves the creation of umpteen different tableaux of sound and changing features: experimentation, ambience, noise, progressive and electro are only some of the genres which emerge from its course. A highly beautiful experience.
CCRZ acquires a new working space in addition to the existing one. The enlargement made it possible to set up new operative areas, a photo studio and an archive.

Quaderno CCRZ #3
«Photographing an object with the purpose of selling it is a bit like arranging it on a stall or in a shop window. It’s always about setting up a small mise-en-scène, there’s always something theatrical about it, an “as if.” The magazine with classified ads offers this too: a catalogue of poses and ways of seeing and showing.»The third Quaderno CCRZ is here. It presents a series by Alessandra Spranzi with the title Vendesi/For Sale.
When working on a poster, a graphic designer can never predict which will be his artwork’s companions. At best the combinations will be more or less harmonious, but sometimes amazing things can happen.
