Pick axes touching upon limestone, the subtle pulses of energy moving through the stems and leaves of flora echoing beneath Valletta. For its first session exploring sound, Sustain-Delay presents Molom. Molom will be performing using real-time sampling of stone working sounds such as the noise of chisels channelled through sound manipulation and electronic compositions.

Description

Pick axes touching upon limestone, the subtle pulses of energy moving through the stems and leaves of flora echoing beneath Valletta. For its first session exploring sound, Sustain-Delay presents Italian Duo Molom (Milena Berta & Alessandro Pedretti). Molom will be performing using real-time sampling of stone working sounds such as the noise of chisels, pieces of marble that are detached from rough blocks and hammers being struck upon stone channelled through sound manipulation and electronic compositions.

[ About Sustain - Delay ]

Welcome to a year-long programme of adventurous music at the Malta Society of Arts, mixing electronic music with sounds further afield.

Bringing together musicians from near and far, in 2024, Sustain-Delay presents a year-long programme of acts experimenting with sound: from organic materials to the rhythmic sway of drum machines; mediaeval instruments to ethereal ambient music. Join us as we fill Palazzo De La Salle in Valletta with music previously unexplored by the Malta Society of Arts.

This project forms part of the Malta Society of Arts’ Performing Arts Programme 2024 and is supported by Arts Council Malta.
