header 2013 06HANDMADE SOUND

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.

All this is mediated by digital and electroacoustic technologies, which nowadays represent a direction for research both for professions and for artistic expression. The results are presented as three installations created by upcoming artists from the Italian scene: three different views of the relationship between plastic arts, sound, and the world of employment.
