Art, music and images talk about ‘distance’ and ‘permanence’

(June 20,2016) ‘Time is an illusion’ Albert Einstein used to say, whereas for Regina Hubner and Luca Lombardi time was about distance and permanence. They are in fact the authors of the audio-visual installation titled ‘Il tempo come distanza, il tempo come permanenza’ (time as distance and time as permanence) that will be opened tomorrow, Tuesday 21 at 19:00 at the Italian Cultural Institute of Vienna. It is about an artistic project that interprets time in relation to the human existence. The audiovisual installation by Hubner will be accompanied by musical compositions by Lombardi in the background. Art Historian Arnulf Rohsmann’s attendance makes the installation more valuable. His task will be to illustrate the concept which ties the two artistic components. Lombardi will introduce his compositions in person and will explain to the ICI public the connections that accompany the theme. (Red)


Luca Lombardi was born in Rome on the 24th December 1945. He studied composing in Rome, Florence, Vienna, Cologne and Berlin. He received his diploma from the Pesaro Conservatory under the guidance of B. Porena. He earned his degree in German Language and Literature (with a thesis on Hanns Eisler, then published by Feltrinelli). He has taught composing in Pesaro and Milan Conservatories. He has written more than 160 compositions among which four operas, three symphonies, solo concerts, music for orchestra, chamber music and for solo instruments. He has held conference and seminars all over Europe, Israel, Latin America, United States, and Japan. He was a fellow of the Wissenschaftskolleg zu Berlin, of the Hanse Wissenschaftskolleg Delmenhorst and a guest at the ‘Berliner Künstlerprogramm des DAAD’. He is co-author of a treaty on orchestration. A selection of his writings were published in the volume ‘Construction of Freedom and other Writings’ edited by J. Thym (Baden-Baden, 2006). ‘Musik-Konzepte’, a series of publications on composers, dedicated a double issue to him (Munich, 2014). He has received various awards among which SIAE award for musical theatre and Petrassi Award. The German president Joachim Gauck has conferred him in 2015 with a merit (Bundesverdienstkreuz).
