Ba-Li-Bo New piece part of Sur Aural Festival 2020 Santa Cruz Bolivia

My piece starts at min 17.30 – Headphones reccomended

BA-LI-BO (ITA) 2020  Autora: Elisabetta Senesi

La pieza es una composición de paisaje sonoro que involucra diferentes manifestaciones sociales en Argentina, Portugal e Italia entre 2016 y 2020. Hay un cambio en el gobierno argentino donde las calles de Buenos Aires se convierten en teatro de coros, batería y expresión del pensamiento social después de la larga historia de Kirchner. poder. Por el contrario, una lucha portuguesa inacabada frente al parlamento de Lisboa contra la austeridad y la precariedad + una huelga policial por justicia en el trabajo. La pieza termina con golpes de Bolonia, donde el movimiento de la Sardina se manifiesta contra la situación política y el lenguaje en Italia a principios de 2020, antes del estricto bloqueo causado por los Covid. Quería obtener algunos recuerdos sonoros de estos tres países ‘sureños’ llenos de innumerables voces, coros grandes, ritmos agitados y marchas silenciosas que expresan incomodidad pública o están dispuestos a cambiar, y reunirlos en un flujo único de conciencia social “.

IMG_01

From the original article by Culture In Rete:

La Biblioteca pian piano riapre, ma i nostri appuntamenti con l’arte non si fermano.

Oggi, martedì 26 maggio, alle ore 18 è stata inaugurata “Camera con vista (!)”, una nuova mostra virtuale della Biblioteca di Fiesole, con fotografie di Elisabetta Senesi.
Artista e accademica nelle discipline visive/sonore formatasi alla fine degli anni ‘90, lavora nel campo della fotografia professionale e di ricerca con progetti focalizzati sullo spazio urbano ed il senso dei luoghi. Dal 2010 opera nel campo dell’arte sonora con particolare attenzione all’ascolto critico e alla narrazione estetica del quotidiano. Il suo lavoro visivo/sonoro esplora i concetti di spazialità, intimità, interferenza umana, e la città intesa come luogo di senso. Ha esposto sia in Italia che all’Estero in collettive e personali. È docente di fotografia, suono e nuove tecnologie.

La mostra è visitabile fino a martedì 2 giugno in un album dedicato sulla pagina Facebook  e sul profilo Instagram della Biblioteca.

New composition out with Casa Masaccio Lab in May 2020

Elisabetta Senesi, Still (Homescape 2020). Sound sketches at the edge of home, 2020 sound track, 8 ‘(draft) Behind the invitation coming from Casa Masaccio Lab, Elisabetta Senesi (Macerata, 1977) has created “STILL”, a new sonic composition which declines an insistent gaze on the concept of home. As often happens in her practice, her sound works are the result of accurate explorations fixed through recordings that collect scraps of reality and fleeting encounters, and which subsequently, even at great distance of time, are recomposed according to new perspectives with narrative purposes. The audio, in its 8 minutes, fully accomplishes the revolution of the inner struggle between adjustment and intolerance to the enclosure. The sound of footsteps, which emerges as a medicine to chaos, announces a new landscape and new confrontations.

We recommend listening with headphones

My participation in this platform which aims to tell the story of the world through sound, the living echo of our day-to-day lives, our territories, and our essence as humans. It has been set up to collect, edit, archive, and use the world’s sound heritage by means of everyday recordings from here and there. The project, led by RFI and an international network of cultural stakeholders and co-funded by the European Union’s Creative Europe programme, has an additional ambition: to develop the practice, the meaning, and the pleasure of listening.
