CREATIONS and SOLO CONCERTS
SOLO RUMORE(Nur Rauschen)
“Solo rumore” is a multimedia concert based on the noise by Alberto Anhaus.
The concert space will be re-adapted: the performer will be in the center and the public will surround the performance that is going to happen in and out of the center.
The concert is divided in 2 macro-sections: “In-Out_In” and “Going slow, vai piano”.
is an immersive installation based on smell, sound and visual mutation of organic materials.
Through the vibrations of different cone speakers with above organic materials, the space will be invaded by the smell and the sound emanated by the conservation and decomposition of 4 different materials which are : earth, leaves, dead plants and grass. The selection of this material has been dictated by the idea to work with what is around me as an individual person in Bern in autumn 2022.
Moreover, this performance includes a collection of micro-sounds from the conservation/ decomposition process from 1st December 2022 to 20th January 2023.
The materials have started the conservation/decomposition process the 1st December 2022.
SOUND AND SPACE
Can sound impact space, and vice versa? Can these two parameters be correlated, or united into one single thing?
Can musicians tune the listeners’ sensorial perception of a concert? If so, how?!
Sound is inextricably linked to space. The way we perceive sound depends heavily on the space it is heard in. This understanding serves as the basis for a wide variety of compositional approaches.
Musical programs are selected to fit into an event’s predetermined context, but the impact of their expression could be enhanced by a mindful choice of spatial positions.
COLONIZATION- SEA INVASION
Colonization - Sea Invasion is an installation that engages the senses of hearing, smell and sight. Their interaction is used for the purpose of provoking questions in the visitor and offering insights to ponder, establishing a parallel between human life and that of the algae Agarophyton vermiculophyllum and Ulva lactuca and offering a different perspective on this often overlooked organism in spite of its importance to the lagoon ecosystem.
The visitor will interact with the depiction of a post-apocalyptic environment surrounding the real protagonist: the seaweed.
In the center of the scene, an aquarium is set up that contains algae. The aquarium is surrounded by small containers filled with water and mud from the Venetian lagoon, and arranged within a square formed by the walkways used in Venice for walking during high water.
In the walkways there are weight sensors which trigger the movement of the water inside the installation.
Smell also plays a key role in the installation.
Being an integral part of Venice's identity, the smell of the seaweed will be reproduced and spread through electrical pulses in relation to the movement and weight of the viewers.
Sounds will arise from two different sources: the sound of the decomposition of seaweed found inside the water and mud containers, amplified and manipulated, and underwater recordings of boats transiting the Grand Canal.

WINDOWS AND DIMENSIONS
"Windows and dimensions" is a series of pieces in which I play around with sounds coming from unexpected instruments; in different dimensions with the particular ways of creating sounds, and going through different setups representing different windows.Music by: Ablinger, Saunders, Lucier, Santacruz, Anhaus.
