Lorenzo Senni + Vanessa Bedoret
Institute of Contemporary Arts

Get ready to dive into the sonic explorations of Milan-based artist Lorenzo Senni, founder of the respected experimental label Presto!?. After a 5-year hiatus from London, we’re delighted to welcome him back at the ICA, with an experience presented by FIGURA. 

His work – an amazing deconstruction of rave culture in the 90’s, carefully analyses its constituent parts for reuse in a very different context and offers a unique and captivating journey through sound. 

Lorenzo, who coined the term “Pointillistic Trance” and “Rave Voyeurism” to describe his approach, is as a sadistic scientist that is ripping the spinal cord out of trance and dangling it in front of our eyes.

The Italian musician is responsible for a few of this decade’s most unique releases Persona (Warp, 2016), Quantum Jelly (Editions Mego, 2012) and Superimpositions (Boomkat Editions, 2014) In 2016 Lorenzo Senni signed for legendary Warp Records and his EP “Persona” got awarded with the prestigious “Honorary Mention” at Prix Arts Electronica, one of the best known and longest running yearly prizes in the field of digital culture and music.

Support comes from London-based French violinist, vocalist and composer, Vanessa Bedoret. Bedoret integrates her classical background to experimental production, as a means to shape intimate and cinematic compositions. Treating songwriting as an instinctive process, she transforms her deeply personal experiences into pure emotion. She joined Scenic Route, a label renowned for selecting and nourishing rising stars for the release of her debut album, Eyes, which came out in March 2024. In 2023 and 2024, she has been accompanying Astrid Sonne for her new album Great Doubt’s tour, as a string trio with Astrid and cellist Emma Barnaby.
