DAVIDE BERTOCCHI :: TOP 100 VOL. 6

drome Lần cập nhật cuối: 8 Tháng Tám, 2022

More than one hundred songs that represent the international artists and curators’ favourite music. Produced in Paris, by Dena Foundation for Contemporary Art and fondation maison rouge, the project Top 100 by Davide Bertocchi celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2013, and for the occasion this year will be released Top 100/Vol. 6, that is the sixth volume of the compilation.
The series is born in 2003, when Bertocchi thought it would be interesting to know the musical tastes of those who work in art. He encouraged painters, sculptors, performers and curators to choose their favorite song – including the classical and jazz pieces –, an impossible selection without the presence of another parameter: the career. Besides the personal preferences, the listeners could also know how these pieces influenced the artists’ work. Among the guests, the sixth chapter hosts Isabelle Alfonsi, Keren Cytter, Michelangelo Pistoletto, Frank Lamy, etc.
The negative side of the project is the audio quality: to put 100 tracks in one CD, they had to use the mp3 format. That means more music, but in the same time less nuances and less details. What a pity! Nobody ever succeeded in gathering in one compilation people such as the Kinks, Miles Davis, Moondog, Wagner, Kanye West and Alain Bashung…
