Three artists play and create their music in the setting of SOLARPUNK, an immersive and transmedia exhibition by gres art 671. The sound of two saxophones and a guitar intertwine to find a new lease of life and references to the electronic landscapes and luminous reflections of the art installations, mutually donating unusual sound perspectives to one another. Two forms of art meet in a new metaphysical space, transforming the large 671 gallery into a unique place for art hybridization: here contemporary art and music meet, and their language is a play of mirrors.

Tino Tracanna, saxophonist and composer from 1981 to early ‘90s, he is a member of the Franco D’Andrea Group, with whomhe participates in several national and international jazz festivals . Since 1995, he has been teaching in different Italian Conservatories, and since 2000 he’s been Tenured Professor and Coordinator of Jazz Classes at Conservatory ‘Conservatorio Verdi’ of Milan. Inhis flourishing career, he has collaborated and recorded with a number of Italian and international musicians, recording over 120 albums as solo guest.

Massimiliano Milesion is a member of the Wayne Horvitz European Orchestra, an ensemble composed of some of the most important improvisers in Europe. In collaboration with Tino Tracanna, he founded Double Cut and isthe project leader of OOFTH. In his career, he has collaborated with different New York musicians and attended several national and international festivals.

Unexpected Encounters is an event organized in collaboration with the International Piano Festival of Brescia Bergamo and Bergamo Jazz. The International Piano Festival of Brescia and Bergamo is one of the world’s most important events dedicated to the piano, intended both as a solo instrument and as a prestigious member of large orchestras.Conceived by Maestro Agostino Orizio, the first edition of the Festival was held in 1964 to test international pianism, and has now been hosting the most famous orchestras and soloists in the splendid settings of the Grand Theatre in Brescia and the Donizetti Theatre Bergamo for over fifty years. The Festival hosts not only some of the greatest pianists - to mention a few, Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli, protagonist of the first five editions, to Magaloff, from Richter to Arrau, Pollini, Ashkenazy, Radu Lupu, Zimerman, Brendel, Martha Argerich, Evgenij Kissin, Grigory Sokolov - but also musicians, singers and conductors of the calibre of Mstislav Rostropovich, Mischa Maisky, Uto Ughi, Luciano Pavarotti, Riccardo Muti, Claudio Abbado, Gergiev, Giulini, Sawallisch, Solti, Maazel Chung. Among the orchestras, there are the Berliner Philharmoniker, the Wiener Philharmoniker, the Chicago Symphony Orchestra, the London Symphony, the Philadelphia Orchestra, the Philharmonic of Israel, the Saint Petersburg Philharmonic, the Nationale de France, the Orchestra of the Academy of Santa Cecilia in Rome, the Philharmonic of the Scala. The long history of the Jazz Festival of Bergamo, one of the most relevant of the sector in Europe, can be divided in two parts: the fist, from 1969 to the early ‘80s, named ‘International Festival of Jazz’ and organized by the Italian Local Tourist Office; the second, from 1991 and on, under the aegis of Bergamo Jazz and Teatro Donizetti. There’s an ideal, unbreakable bond between the ‘old’ and the ‘new’ Festival: the same artistic thread which, by virtue of a proactive approach, mirrors the various, coexisting souls of jazz. Numerous international artists have taken part in the Festival: Dizzy Gillespie, Keith Jarrett, Gerry Mulligan, Charles Mingus, Art Ensemble of Chicago, Max Roach, Herbie Hancock, Archie Shepp, Ornette Coleman, Gato Barbieri, John Scofield, Jim Hall, McCoy Tyner, Bill Frisell, Jan Garbarek and many more. Since 2006, the Artistic Direction of Bergamo Jazz has been assigned to an important international musician and the current Artistic Director is the American saxophonist Joe Lovano.

Garden detail
A space swinging from indoors and outdoors, where light is the absolute protagonist; an open square that promotes a harmonious dialogue between the natural surroundings and architecture. The garden, a recess in the facade, obtained by removing the roof and demolishing the flooring, features the original structures as a statement of gres art 671's industrial past and a way to preserve its history.

Despite the totally new space, the garden is perfectly integrated with the surrounding building, as if it had always been part of it. Not a place to admire, but a space to experiment on a daily basis; a corner to rest, an educational space and a stage setting for cultural and social events.

The unveiled garden is a relaxing oasis where the seating, designed to welcome people and yet delimit the lawn, creates a connection between those who rest in the shade of the trees and their surroundings. The art 671 garden is the perfect place for savouring art, engaging in cultural discussions, getting lost in a good book, or letting music envelop us.

In the evening, when the lights of Viabizzuno's 'Campanule', beautifully shaped lamps inspired by mountain flowers, are turned on, the garden suddenly turns into a cosy and intimate setting, bringing a feeling of serenity.
