Solo Suono workshop

The workshop, aimed at students and external guests, focuses on the creative possibilities of sound and musical and sound reworking in the field of artistic research. The three guests who will speak, proposing their work as one of the possible operational models, had previously been involved in enriching the MPDS sound archive that constitutes the Solo Suono room donation to the Academy.

– Ana Spasic soprano, with FuturParoLibere are illustrated futurist poems, among the most emblematic of the period between 1910 and 1931, interpreted (recreated in the moment) by Ana Spasic in a polyhedral SIGN – SOUND – GESTURE and VISION key. The soprano futurvoce, as per the indication of Pratella’s manifesto, through the multi-sensoriality of “colorful-mimic-dynamic-musical theater,” experiments with the intrinsic dimensions as a possibility of dynamic and expressive expansion in some graphic poems by Marinetti, Depero, Masnata, Cangiullo, Benedetta, Balla, Illari, Steiner, and Ginna Futurista. The meeting is divided into four movements: 1) Parolibere Tables or Words in Freedom, 2) Tavolibere or States of Mind, 3) Depero’s Onomalingua, and 4) Marinetti’s War Chronicles.

– Alessandro Aiello (canecapovolto /Scuola FuoriNorma), in collaboration with Adriano Elia, will present Datapanic and Resoundscape, two projects that deal, in different ways, with the reworking of a sound archive and the creative composition of sounds and noises, attempting a crossing of the boundaries of musical genres and the discovery of new relationships between music, sound art and archival sound material.

– Stuart Fowkes (Cities and Memory) will present his Cities and Memory sound project, one of the largest sound projects in the world, with more than 1,000 contributing artists. The exploration of field recording and the possibilities of its creative reworkings are the central themes of his project, which aims to “remix the world, one sound at a time”. With an ongoing global, collaborative sound map covering more than 110 countries and territories at its heart, Cities and Memory deeply examines aspects of the intersections between sound, culture and art, with recent projects documenting the sounds of the Covid-19 lockdowns, the sounds of the Arctic and Antarctic, sustainability in cities, protest, prayer and the natural world.
