LCAO is a solo project by Michele Scarpetta, the Italian musician/chemist/sound engineer.
Here, the digital creation shapes itself through the pure concept of language, the conscious choice of a synthesis directed to create personal visions and theories about the composer’s experiences, not unlike a scientist, explaining Nature functions through universally recognized formulas, based on both his own and other people’s experiments.
Here they are, then, a material world, commonly known, conceived using the complex and essential language of the molecular orbital theory, consumer goods created through the invention of all mathematical samples of atoms and substances, colours and shades of the matter that we can link to electron transitions among precise energy levels.
Here it is, then, an electro music piece becomes its own language made from rock guitars, flutes, jazz elements, choirs, timpani, blues roots, harpsichords, songwriters, remixes, violins, David Sylvian, soul phrasings.
LCAO (Linear Combination of Atomic Orbitals) is loosely inspired by the writer Primo Levi and, above all, by his work “The Periodic Table”.
“… here the sky is green and black.”
