UltraSonne by Ultraviolet Alter.
Performing under the name of UltraSonne, Ultraviolet is a passionate Second Life artist/musician who loves to share her experiments in improvisation, often collaborating with other artists towards creating an immersive artistic happening. You are invited inside a world
of sounds composed of dynamic weaves of traditional instruments, a touch of jazz, modern grooves and irresistible syncopations making you feel you do not have enough body parts to
fully move with it.
The themes of her engagements are sensitive with subtle meaning : from the echo of ancient tribal evocation to polyphonic united voices, visiting depths of cadences and
rythmical dynamics… it’s a pulsing fiesta of energyies and dynamic lyrical tensions.
Merging, you can travel through waves of live rythms: from a delicate whisper to a cascade of interlaced matrix patterns: it’s intense, vibrant, coming from far, often with a humourous touch and a nostalgic evocation of grandiose landscapes of futuristic impressions.
Always open, not resolved, engaging, inviting you in, expansive but with an instinctive delicate intimacy.
UltraSonne on the Ultraviolet frequency waveband……

NATURAE Opening at MiC Musei in Comune di Roma (1st Part)

The Opening was on Monday 28 March 2011 at  1:30 SLT – 22:30 to MiC –

Museum of Rome

“Naturae” literally means “of Nature”, born out of the root ‘natus’. Nature, the creative force, is also the forgotten matrix source, and is a system of natural laws which determine and control the entire universe and all of its elements and living beings.

Because of man being blinded by his technological prowess, this has now fallen into oblivion and become a shadow of the past but which now resurfaces unexpectantly from this hidden immortal line of continuity.
In this installation, Merlino Mayo follows this theme of Man having turned away from this integral  part of himself and who now turns and is again confronted by it. A meeting with Lex Naturae, with this shadow part, still ever present in our DNA (internal) and our environmental domain (outdoor), and that, as a latent virus, re-emerges in a disturbing way.

The path of “Naturae” starts with a solid and impressive sculptures such as: Life’s Lines – (Life Line), huge Ley Lines, etc. calling upon the visitor through a more active exploration into a dialogue with our existing environment and the surrounding seas, rocks and light.

Then at a higher altitude the installation changes through different levels within this enormous dream and the visitor will be overwhelmed by these elements in a purely symbolic, metaphysical, surreal and free exploration, where we can allow ourselves be safely and pleasantly lost.

The video installation will be part of the “IMAGIN@RIUM” which, together with those of other facilities of the MiC, will occupy a position at MACRO – Museo d’Arte Contemporanea in Rome.

“Naturae” letteralmente  “della Natura”,  ciò che da essa nasce (natus) e ne fa parte.
La Natura, la forza creatrice, è anche l’origine matricale dimenticata dagli uomini; il sistema delle leggi naturali che condizionano e controllano l’intero Universo, tutti i suoi elementi e gli esseri viventi.
L’uomo con tutto il suo genio tecnologico, è caduto nell’oblio di ciò che lo ha generato come un ombra dimenticata nel passato che riaffiora continuamente e inaspettatamente nel presente.
In questa installazione Merlino Mayo ripercorre il tema dell’Uomo che si è allontanato da una parte importante di se stesso, che affronta l’incontro con la Lex Naturae, con la sua ombra, sempre presente nel suo DNA (interno) e nell’ambiente circostante (esterno), e che come un virus latente riaffiora in modo anche traumatico.

Si inizia quindi il percorso “Naturae” con delle solide e imponenti sculture come ad esempio: Life Line – (Linea della vita), The Big Kybernetes, etc. che esortano il visitatore ad una esplorazione più attiva. Un dialogo con  l’ambiente preesistente e circostante dell’isola, con il mare, la roccia e la luce.
Successivamente, salendo in quota, il percorso cambierà e ci si troverà tra i vari livelli onirici e gargantueschi all’interno dei quali verrete sovrastati dagli elementi in una dimensione puramente simbolica, metafisica e surreale, in libera esplorazione dove perdersi piacevolmente è auspicabile.

Il video dell’installazione farà parte del progetto “IMAGIN@RIUM” che, insieme a quelli delle altre installazioni del MiC, occuperà una postazione al MACRO – Museo d’Arte Contemporanea di Roma.
