The leading concept of this long concert marathon is the meeting of different sound cultures, as performed by five sound directors who are all active in the dissemination and valorisation of soundscapes on an international level. The event will therefore urge the Italian creative community to listen and to debate on the theme of soundscapes, acting as an important moment of attraction for this theme. Delightfully territorial experiences (such as Bernard Fort’s projects Elba, or the various Italian works on the sound of Florence) will intersect with distinctly exotic research projects (for example, two of these are on the landscape of India), willingly sending us into a universe of expression which is now so widespread and exercised that it has entered the mainstream of musical and formative production. The aim of the Soundscape Marathon is therefore to mark a reference point, indicating possible windows of development and investigation in the electroacoustic music field.

An event within the “Il paesaggio sonoro in cui viviamo” project, funded by the Erasmus+ program (2016-2019).
In collaboration with the French Institute of Florence, GMVL (France), AFEA/ Festival DEM (Portugal), EPHMEE (Greece), Amici della Musica di Cagliari (Italy).
