As a prologue to the Avant l’orage exhibition, the Bourse de Commerce joins forces with the eco-responsible Milanese festival Terraforma, where music and ecology share pride of place. Over the course of one special evening, the Bourse de Commerce will be transformed into a visual and sound ecosystem, with concerts, DJ sets, and conferences. The museum is proud to host The Planet as Festival (Il Pianeta come Festival), a project inaugurated in 2020 by Terraforma and inspired by a series of drawings of a utopian society by Italian architect and designer Ettore Sottsass (1917-2007).

Italian curator and researcher Erica Perillo will introduce The Planet as Festival (Il Pianeta come Festival), and present Terraforma’s conservation and restoration work in the gardens of the 18th-century Villa Arconati in Milan, where the festival is held every year. The evening continues with Italian percussionist Enrico Malatesta, presenting for the first time in France a work called Occam Ocean Occam XXVI, the fruit of his collaboration with Eliane Radigue, a pioneering French composer of drone music. This performance is followed by duo Chuquimamani-Condori (Elysia Crampton Chuquimia) & Joshua Chuquimia Crampton, whose music is infused with the stories and demands of the indigenous Aymara people of South America. The evening ends with a DJ set by iconic Dutch producer DJ Marcelle.
DJ Marcelle is a cult Dutch underground producer and DJ. Nourished by the punk movement and inspired by the development of electronic music and dub, DJ Marcelle has never ceased to explore a multitude of sounds. Famous for her collection of 20,000 records, her sets navigate between musical genres, as she plays jungle, dub, dance music, post-punk, and industrial music simultaneously on three vinyl turntables.
Chuquimamani-Condori & Joshua Chuquimia Crampton
The music of Chuquimamani-Condori (Elysia Cramption Chuiquima, b. 1985 in California ), initially discovered for its digital sound collages blending traditional Andean music with electronic and gothic textures, takes inspiration from a deeply personal narrative that integrates multiple forms of knowledge and intergenerational exchanges. Along with her brother, Joshua Chuquimia Crampton (b. 1983, San Diego), the duo pursue the anti-colonial and anti-ecclesiastical work of the Aymara people, from whom their family originated. Originally from the province of Pacajes in Bolivia, they are the authors of a multi-faceted musical work, combining indigenous Aymara culture, queer thought, and abolitionist struggle.
Chuquimamani-Condori and Joshua Chuquimia Crampton live in the United States and belong to the Pakajaqi nation of the Aymara people. Chuquimamani-Condori has recently presented artistic projects at the Centre d’Art Contemporain Genève and the Haus Der Kunst in Munich. Joshua Chuquimia Crampton released 4 (2021) and The Heart's Wash (2020), a comprehensive project of solo guitar compositions. Together, they directed the 2021 film Amaru’s Tongue: Daughter.
Eliane Radigue – Occam Ocean Occam XXVI
Enrico Malatesta, percussion
Percussionist and sound researcher Enrico Malatesta presents Occam Ocean Occam XXVI (2018), resulting from his creative collaboration with Eliane Radigue, a pioneering French composer of drone music. In the early 2000s, Eliane Radigue stopped producing electronic music in favour of collaborations with instrumentalists, giving rise to a series of instrumental works, including Occam Océan, a piece in constant evolution and inspired by the theme of water. The creative process of these works is based on the principle of oral and auditory transmission. To complete their composition, the musicians visit Éliane Radigue in her Parisian apartment for multiple sessions, offering her a range of different materials from which to select sounds.
Erica Petrillo is a curator and researcher with a background in political philosophy and social science. She currently works in Milan, with the interdisciplinary agency 2050+. She has co-organized several public programmes and exhibitions for various cultural institutions, including MoMA’s R&D Department monthly salon programme; Broken Nature, the 22nd Milan Triennale; Open, the Russian pavilion at the 17th Venice Architecture Biennale; and more recently Synthetic Cultures for the 2022 edition of the Rotterdam International Architecture Biennale.
Terraforma : Il Pianeta come Festival (The Planet as Festival)
Terraforma is an eco-responsible music festival devoted to artistic experimentation, which takes place every year in the gardens of the Villa Arconati, near Milan in Italy. It brings together young artistic talents from the experimental music scene, both emerging and established, in a venue that Terraforma preserves and restores, with its commitment to the use of sustainable resources and a reduction of its environmental impact.
In 2020, Terraforma inaugurated the project known as Il Pianeta come Festival, inspired by a series of drawings and texts by Italian architect and designer Ettore Sottsass (1917-2007), depicting a humanity freed from work and social conditioning, and in harmony with nature. Through its interpretation of Il Pianeta come Festival, Terraforma travels to different places and spaces, offering micro-festivals in different formats, in Milan and at the MACRO in Rome in 2020, and in Paris at the Bourse de Commerce in 2022.
