Sound Design

The centre fosters creative sound design in its various declinations, be it purely functional or an artistic support for public and private exhibitions. Tempo Reale's expert advice and production of content can be applied to various sectors – from the design of specific audio-systems for architectural environments to the realization of sound installations, from the composition of site specific music for exhibitions to the creation of individualized sonorous objects built according to the audio communication needs of institutions and companies. Tempo Reale has dedicated the past years to the construction of a highly prestigious portfolio collaborating with important realities such as Expo2000 in Hannover, the Renzo Piano Building Workshop, Rome's Auditorium and MAXXI Museum, the Marino Marini Museum and The Museo del Novecento in Florence.

Marino Marini Project

Marino Marini Project

Permanent sound installation for the Marino Marini Museum of Florence

Ideation: Cristina Bucci and Chiara Lachi (Educational Department of Marino Marini Museum)
Sound project: Francesco Giomi
Music: Luigi Mastandrea
Technical assistance: Francesco Casciaro

Production: Marino Marini Museum, Tempo Reale

The Marino Marini Museum of Florence regularly conducts an educational itinerary for children and adults, which includes a study of some of the most significant statues from a visual as well as aural standpoint. Starting from a project by the museum’s Educational Department, Tempo Reale has designed and created the sonification of specific sculptures with a permanent installation aiming to underline their emotional characteristics. The installation applies to three works which also thematically represent Marino Marini’s creative path: “Cavallo”, “Cavaliere”, and finally “Il grido”, which have all been provided with a specially composed narrative musical structure capable of highlighting their evocative and expressive strength.

Sound installations

This project is defined by the production of new works of sound art following two different directions: on the one hand, sound art as an instrument for reflection on the world of jobs and employment, and on the other an investigation of the physical possibilities offered by everyday objects for the construction of new works.
