Birdman - Tangata Manu
musical concert-installation
emanuel dimas de melo pimenta

In 2015 the Italian artist Marco Agostinelli started a challenging project: Birdman and the New Generation. A big sculpture in wood, many small sculptures, three installations, two videos, a set of lights, several paintings and drawings in a deep dive into one of the most disturbing and enlightening myths of our planet. Two years of intense work resulted in a powerful and historical artwork that also is an experience of life. In 2016, Marco Agostinelli invited Emanuel Dimas de Melo Pimenta to compose a musical piece for the exhibition at the magnificent Palazzo Zenobio, during the Biennale of Venice. Emanuel Pimenta elaborated a concert-installation using robotic sounds of poems created by one hundred poets from thirty countries and birds from all over the world. The musical score, made inside Virtual Reality, was based on the oldest known musical score, dated of around four thousand years ago, which is in the Schøyen Collection. The musical concert-installation by Emanuel Pimenta is dedicated to Marco Agostinelli e a Martin Schøyen.
