RE /// LOAD is a solo AV performance where audio-visuals, live electronics and augmented instrumental practice are melted into a single-body event. It aims to rethink the concert format and the concept of performance concerning new multimedia technologies, improvisation and an 'augmented' instrument. Here, a new work by the Italian composer - Federico Costanza - encounters non-academic approaches taken from pop culture, reminiscences of Giacinto Scelsi, Pan Sonic, and a unique ‘backside’ electric guitar developed by Carlo Siega.

Winner of the prestigious Kranichsteiner Musikpreis for interpretation at the Ferienkurse für die Neue Musik in Darmstadt, Carlo Siega is a guitarist, multimedia artist, and researcher.
