Apollo 11 Reloaded
a MartuxM project
live sets performed by MartuxM and Giulio Maresca
Apollo 11 Reloaded is a new musical composition by Maurizio Martusciello aka MartuxM dedicated to the anniversary of the moon landing and produced by the Fondanzione Musica per Roma in the occasion of the New Year’s Eve of the City of Rome.
An electronic orchestration celebrates the 50th anniversary of the space mission which for the first time allowed the man to set foot on the moon, screening repertory images from the Archivio Luce, in collaboration with the Fondazione Cinema per Roma and Casa del Cinema.
A countdown until the New Year, with videos and photos taken by Bruno Palma of the Sator International Group, in collaboration with the Italian Space Agency, leads us to the landing of the soundtrack spaceship of MartuxM, scheduled for January 1 in via Petroselli in Rome.
The MartuxM project also aims at the next space missions of 2019, as a natural bridge between past and future, starting from the “Beyond” enterprise of Luca Parmitano scheduled for July, where the Italian astronaut will be in charge of the International Space Agency mission.
A global event that needs the involvement of all and who found in MartuxM, a pioneer of electronics, a convinced supporter and researcher of Beyond (Beyond as the name of Luca Parmitano mission). To make this project even more prestigious the extraordinary musician Danilo Rea participated in the composition of the anthem dedicated to this enterprise.
Other compositions presented for the first time at La festa di Roma for MartuxM will be composed by Pasquale Catalano, one of the most representative composers of Italian’s cinema from Sorrentino to Ӧzpetek.
The artistic experience is the only form of language that can be “Reloaded”, that can reload, emotions, from those experienced for the historical event of the first man on the moon, to future ones of the future aerospace missions of the A.S.I.
This is the challenge of Martux_M: silence, sound, voice and the passage of time are the only ingredients that make music, the emotional language that implies itself in our perception and produces its own effects. The new sounds of the electronic production of Martux_M represent those new still unexplored sound constellations, a foreign land in which himself and the listener can glimpse the dance of a new star, never seen before. “Beyond”.
