“Time Zone – on the Way of Possible Music” comes to its thirtieth edition and renews the proposal of search music from the most important international artistic scenes. A sound track in continuity with the history of the Barese Festival, where music is the main protagonist of an exhibition deliberately projected towards the interweaving of codes and languages. Countless and prestigious, they have been artists in over thirty years participating in the Kermesse Barese: from Sakamoto to David Sylvian, Lou Reed to Patti Smith through exhibitions, special projects, readings and installations and previews that have made the festival conceived by Gianluigi Trevisi a staple of the Apulian and international culture.

Preview of the 2017 season will be Time Zones Off, the usual warm-up appointment dedicated to the undergrowth of independent music and the new realities that are gaining the attention of industry media.
From 13th to 15th October, in the spaces of Pellicano in Bari, Turukù will perform in the class, where rock, rap and classical converge into pieces of fulmicotone, the Nocturnal Scene, a post-rock instrument band that blends dreamy atmospheres post-rock dilatations with math-rock rhythmic intersections, and Peekaboom, the duet with double bass, voice and live-looping Ableton.

Following, one of the leading exponents of minimalism, saxophonist and composer Jon Gibson, originally from the West Coast and transplanted to New York, where he became Philip Glass’s historic partner. Along with him on the stage there will be Britton Powell, composer and base performer in Brooklyn, whose work has been commissioned for performances all over the planet. The evening finale is instead entrusted to the project of sounds and images “Visions” by Luigi Morleo and Niccolò Mastrolonardo.
