The Sound Object as part of Open Museum Open City at MAXXI in Rome RAM radioartemobile in collaboration with Paolo Coteni, October 24 to November 30, 2014.
A 55-hour concentrate from the sound universe across space and time. It is divided into five full-day appointments of radio nonstop deliberately without chronological order.

-second appointment: Eastern Europe (1.11.2014 /2.11.2014)
-third appointment: the Americas (Canada to South America) (8.11.2014/ 9.11.2014)
-fourth appointment: Western and Northern Europe (11/15/2014/ 11/16/2014)
-fifth appointment: Asia and Australia (from the Middle East to Southeast Asia to Polynesia and Australia) (22.11.2014/ 23.11.2014) project partners Ito Lim, Young Ae and YeonYujin Lee from Seowon University, Korea.
