“Inspired by the well-known diagrams and geometric theories of the eponymous mathematician coming from the cold 19th century Russian Empire, Matteo Nobile, and Luca Scarrone explore through Voronoi the changing relationship between sound, structure and space. In a continuous metric and formal deconstruction the duo literally ‘debunks’ and ‘re-assemble’ the musical narrative following a kind of probabilistic calculation that balances sound and rhythm in a seemingly chaotic geometry. As for the Russian mathematicianʼs theories (nowadays used in wireless wave propagation, geolocation systems, graphic modeling and research procedures used for commercials, indexes, and cookies), the result strikes you as really contemporary.” [via]

PAYNOMINDTOUS is a non-profit organization registered in December 2018, operating since late 2015 as a webzine and media website. In early 2017, we started our own event series in Turin, IT focused on arts, experimental, and dancefloor-oriented music. We reject every clumsy invocation to “the Future” meant as the signifier for capitalistic “progress” and “innovation”, fully embracing the Present instead; we renounce any reckless and ultimately arbitrary division between “high” and “low”, respectable and not respectable, “mind” and “body”; we support and invite musicians, artists, and performers having diverse backgrounds and expressing themselves via variegated artistic practices.
paynomindtous‘ co-founder & graphic designer, Cristina Ruggieri [1993, Alba, Italy] has recently completed her studies at Accademia di Belle Arti in Turin, the city where she lives. Beside messing around with materials and shaping stuff, she’s passionate about the overall listening experience, whether is it live or in her bedroom filled with stuffed animals.
