Sounds from Stazione di Topolò/Global Health Incubator across the World and back

ToBe Continued is coming back on March 24th, World TB Day

ToBe Continued is an original concert lasting 24 hours (from 00.00 hours to the midnight of March 24th, GMT+1), during which musicians from many parts of the World will be connected to a website that will broadcast their concerts. During this un-interrupted 24 hour marathon (ToBe Continued… in fact) each musician has at disposal a 30-minute window, thus creating a relay of sounds and rhythms that will range from the different streams of the “new music”.

The event, that will cover the 24th of March, World TB Day, in its entirety, is coordinated by Antonio Della Marina, musician and computer music composer, and by Moreno Miorelli, artistic director of the annual gathering “Stazione di Topolò/Postaja Topolove”. The whole initiative is under the aegis of the Global Health Incubator, the ‘laboratory’ established in July 2009 in Topolò to create links between the world of creativity and that of science.

The participating musicians will perform live from many different countries including Cameroun, Thailand, Bolivia, Chile, Costarica, Perù, New Zealand, China, India, Mexico, Argentina, Philippine, USA, Indonesia, Japan, Canada, South Korea, Brazil, Australia, South Africa, Morocco, Georgia, Turkey, and many European countries (Russia, Belarus, Serbia, Eire, Slovenja, Greece, Albania, Germany, Italy, France, Austria, Makedonia, Poland, Spain, Norway, Bulgaria, Transnistria, Great Britain), creating a symbolical tour of the world with 48 stops.Anybody can listen to ToBe Continued…,as long as an internet connection is available, by connecting to the website

The project includes several public listening points: bars, libraries, cultural centers, art galleries, shops, web radio, all listed on the website, that will broadcast the concert (if you want, you can create a listening point, tell us…). The list will be present on the stazioneditopolo web page.Tuberculosis (abbreviated as TB in English and TBC in Italian) is a curable disease. However, it  is often underestimated, if not totally ignored, as a major human scourge, although it is globally the leading cause of death from an infectious disease, causing the loss of 1.7 million people each year, 4000 every day, with thousands of unnecessary victims also in the richest countries every year.

The project ToBe Continued…is also part of the initiatives organized by Stop TB Italia to commemorate World TB Day. The event has the help to Eli Lilly MDR-TB Partnership and Sanofi, the collaboration with UNIKUM – Culture Centre of the University of Klagenfurt, that will provide the facilities for the coordination of the concerts and the patronage of Global TB Programme of World Health Organization.

Abstract. Increasingly in the 1990s, cultural theorists and feminist scholars critiqued media with explicitly sexual content as unseemly and derogatory toward recorded female subjects. In the past the audience, envisioned as entertained, satisfied, or otherwise occupied by these media, was primarily gendered male. But with increased consideration and validation of the plurality of desire, sexual performance has been reconceived; the position of the observer or listener has likewise changed.

The classical music approaches to new technologies through the project Phenicx (, which proposes new ways to enjoy the experience of live music through innovative systems that allow to view and listen to a concert in a personalized way depending on the interests of the viewer.

After three years of international research, we invite the audience of Barcelona to discover these technologies through different demos:


  • A concert of classical music and technology with piano: The concert will last for 5-10 minutes and will be repeated. During the concert there will be a projection with an application that lets the audience see in real time different aspects of the music performance such as the structure, instrumentation, predominant melody or gestures of the director.

  • A space for demos: with tablets and headsets visitors can explore various components of the prototype of the concert: listening separately the different instruments of the orchestra, the score display while listening to music, and learning about the structure symphonic works.

  • Becoming the maestro: an interactive installation to simulate the role of a conductor and t understand the control of the different instruments and their interpretations through gestures.
