Quintetto is an installation based on the study of casual movement of objects or living creatures used as input for the production of sounds. The basic concept is to reveal what we call "invisible concerts" of everyday life. The vertical movements of the 5 fishes in the aquarius is captured by a videocamera, that translates (through a computer software) their movements in digital sound signals. We'll have 5 different musical instruments creating a totally unexpected live concert.
The research of Quiet ensemble goes through the observation of the ballance between chaos and control, nature and technology, creating subjects that perfectly merges the those elements, elements that take form from the relation of organic and artificial subjects, moving the attention to insignificant and wonderful elements,
like the movement of a fly or the sound of trees.
The interest is connected to those technologies that explores the aesthetic and conceptual possibilities deriving from interactivity techniques, aproaching the newest technological discoveries
as if they would be the tools for creation, like the brush for the painter.
Working on the relation between time and space, sound and image the work of Quiet ensemble changes and develops in time, relating to the space, changing it.
Emphasizing the unespected events, refuting the apparent immobility of shapes and melting the appearing opposition of forces in nature.
Quiet ensemble is born in 2009 from the meeting between Fabio Di Salvo | Bernardo Vercelli.
RoboVox is a large (8m high) interactive public sound installation
by media artist Martin Bricelj, using SMS for general public
interaction. It will be installed in crowded metropolitan squares
preferably on those carrying some social or even political connotation.
Its purpose is to serve as a tool for an individual, who's voice
usually gets lost in the sounds of the mass, the society. An individual
can send a text message using his mobile phone to the dedicated
RoboVox's number. Upon receiving the SMS RoboVox says out loud the
statement, the protest, the declaration of love, or whatever the
message may read, thus lending its voice to the anonymous individual.
important aspect of the project is the sound: it is going to be
manifested as sound design of public space in which RoboVox appears.
Where this will be possible, the opening event will include a concert
with live acts of musicians involved.
