An audiovisual live opera originally devised and produced by Matteo Scaioli and David Loom in July 2014.
ƒoleymandala is an original prototype live performance for prepared vinyl records,
analog synthesizers, electric instruments, percussions and motion images.
The neologism-title suggests an interpretation of the entire artistic process:
ƒoley is the art of live reproducing all those sounds that chorally contribute to the sound realism
and acoustic comfort in modern cinema; mandala finally describes and defines the industriousness,
symbolism and spirituality that characterize the entire performance, evoking also a complex
and fluid structural circularity, fil rouge of the whole represented experience.
Four years later (2018)
a remixed full version film was released with an updated original music score featuring,
now available on Vimeo platform for a more comprehensive public sharing:
