soundings

per voce e cinematica

un lavoro in verticale, quattro verticali di misurazione segnano la geometria di un quadrato mentale e precario che si fa icona contemporanea attraversata da tempi e ritmi diversi, un’opera numerante e cinematica sul concetto di lontananza montabile e smontabile come una tenda nomade che viaggia gli spazi, una partitura di luce in basso continuo costruita concettualmente in accordi numerali attorno a cardiologia, cardiologia è una canzone, dialoga con i proiettori, i proiettori in movimento hanno un suono, un vento, è un lavoro in verticale che cambia in undici secondi, muove percorsi sonori per un tempo non misurabile, uno spazio strutturabile e destrutturabile che si adatta ai luoghi e al pensiero, una baia, un orizzonte che mette in azione fondali scenici in continuo movimento, in viaggio con le maree del mondo, stage left.

soundings

for voice and cinematics

a vertical work, four measuring panels mark the geometry of a precarious, mental surface which becomes an icon simultaneously crossed by various tempos and rhythms, a numbering and cinematic work based on the concept of assemblable and disassemblable distance, like nomad tents moving in space, a score of light, in “basso continuo” conceptually structured in numerical chords around the song entitled cardiologia in a dialogue with the projectors, the wind-like sound of projectors in movement. This is a vertical work which changes every 11 seconds, following audio paths in unquantifiable amounts of time, an assemblable and disassemblable space which may be structured and de-structured and adapted to places, to thoughts, to bays, to a horizon which actuates the scenic sea beds in continuous movement, in syntony with the tides of the world stage left.
