Glasstress Becomes Music
Max Casacci, guitarist and leader of the Italian group Subsonica, and Daniele Mana, also known as Vaghe Stelle, created Glasstress (Glass Music), an electronic music album created only with glass. All the rhythmics were realized by recording the sounds of the glass while it was being made and also broken in the furnace at Berengo Studio. On October 4th, with the contribution of Fondazione CRT, two exclusive live sets of Glasstress will be played in the “Camera di Vetro” in Palazzo Madama in Turin. It is an appropriate venue as the “Camera di Vetro” hosts a permanent collection of glass objects dated from ancient Roman times to the 19th century.
