Here below my contribution  to this amazing project – See more at http://citiesandmemory.com/ 

Part of our Dada Sound project (February 2016) – By Elisabetta Senesi.

“My reimagined piece is focused on the juxtaposition of two layers of narrative. I applied the dada techniques of Collage and Montage by cutting separate clips where speech/human acitivities happened. Hence, I edited each clip in order to rebuild the recording backwards, while working mainly in split channels for manual pannings and individual time delays. Abstraction technique has been applied by using audio transitions between the selected clips, mostly cross fade in/out, and reverse effect has been also added in some clips with radio voices and mobiles melodies as I aimed to give a sense of interference. Chance has been applied with Phaser effect in one clip as I wanted to give another level of speech intelligibility. Finally, Readymade technique has been applied by adding generative modular sounds, such as DTMF tone, Risset Drum, Chirp, Click Track to join the main clips and to conclude the piece.”

Inauguração 12 Dezembro 16h / até 13 Fevereiro 2016

Galeria #3
Instalação colectiva (sound/video art)

Sugerindo o título do projecto como inspiração para uma livre interpretação, foram convidados sound artists de todo o mundo para elaborarem uma peça sonora e um video/fotos para uma apresentação pública onde o som é acompanhado pela exibição das imagens. Imagens dispostas aleatoriamente de forma a não coincidirem com as peças sonoras do mesmo autor.
Em vez de um exercício de ligação óbvio entre imagem e som, sugere-se aqui explorar e experienciar a forma como os sons moldam as imagens e vice-versa, mesmo sem uma ligação evidente, excepto a ligação com o título. Um aparente retalho de imagens descontextualizadas que se poderá tornar numa sugestão de diferentes perspectivas dentro do tempo de cada peça sonora.

Sonic Space #05 | A Multi-Channel Installation part of 3rd HaPoC 2015

February 7, 2016 Leave a comment

I achieved a new sound art work at this International Science Conference focused on the History and Philosophy of Computing happened in Pisa 8-11 October.

HaPoC 2015

The project presents an interactive, spatial sound installation based on audio listening, field recordings and physical computing. It is composed by five acoustic found objects/materials and deals with concept of curiosity, sociality and proximity. The repetition, the transmission and the temporality of sounds/noises we experience and inhabit in our three-dimensional world.

The piece is a location-based sonic intervention where sourced architectural objects/materials are being used as instruments of physical interaction and sonic transmission. There is no beginning or end, yet a continuous non-linear sonic ON/OFF aiming to create a space for exploration and play by actively engaging visitors in the co-creation of the work. Each object/material stores a specific pre-recorded sound/noise. Essentialy people peak up the sound by touching them, separately. Audience is invited to explore the space around and listening. Each action/interaction actionates and playbacks the sound/noise for a certain period of time depending on the scale of vibration. An analog-digital system I have designed monitors in real-time the entire progression of the performative event.

The installation was on from 10am to 5pm for three days within the HaPoC Conference. Public audience engaged expectedly and unexpectedly depending on body movements and physical gestures with objects. An academic publication with a detailed article about my piece will follow.

==============================================================================================
Sonus Loci 2015 is a space for reflections and visions, liberty and desire. From a constant live present in the surrounding environment towards multilayered perspectives of the self. Focusing the ears by locating sounds within a fragmentary overhearing of voices and bodies afar. A developing architectural space, men and women at work for future dwelling, the outskirt of a broken city, segments of common ground,  and the possibility of an open field. From a minimal ray of the everyday experience to the discovering of an extra-ordinary dimension. Phenomenal, psychological, extremely physical.

STAZIONE AUDIO 2015 – MY NEW SONIC INSTALLATION AT THE GALLERY SPACE OF CASA MASACCIO ARTE CONTEMPORANEA (IT)

October 30, 2015 Leave a comment

IMG_6764_FOCUS_ONSONUS LOCI, 2014 (6MIN) La composizione audio ambientale nasce da un progetto didattico più ampio condotto nell’area urbana del Nuovo Polo Universitario di Novoli a Firenze ed esplora la relazione tra suono/rumore pre-registrato, fotografia ed architettura. Il fine ultimo del brano è quello di narrare uno spazio/luogo da una prospettiva prettamente acustica aperta a molteplici interpretazioni.

378KM CAPISCI AMORE MIO, 2014 (20MIN) La composizione audio ambientale è un viaggio sonoro di andata e ritorno realizzato in prima persona dall’artista, che parte all’alba di un piccolo paese delle Marche ed arriva nella Capitale Romana attraversando spazi, luoghi, persone. La narrazione è immaginaria e non sempre cronologica sebbene sia interamente basata su registrazioni audio raccolte in una porzione specifica dell’Italia legata sia da fattori geografci che storici.

BACK OF THE MIKE 1938 RELOADED, 2013 (5MIN) Il collage sonoro è un estratto audio da un breve film del 1938 nel quale si mostra la realizzazione di effetti sonori di un live radio western ad opera di attori/trici all’interno di un studio radiofonico degli Stati Uniti. Senesi ha rimanipolato le tracce sonore originali dell’epoca concentrandosi sulle voci e sulla creazione ludico-fisica del radiodramma, senza però eludere il senso drammaturgico della narrazione.

Sessione Totale Ascolto: 31min
