TEMPO REALE AND SONIC SOMATIC_CITY SONDOLS
Workshop by Matteo Marangoni
Starting from an interest in the auditory perception of urban spaces and of architecture, the workshop “CITY SONDOLS – the art of sounds from an urban perspective” contributes temporary appropriation techniques for urban and architectural spaces, transforming them into scenic design for sonic and aesthetic rituals where the line between protest, gameplay, and sensory exploration is at its thinnest.
The workshop, aimed at six artists and musicians selected via an open call, will be held in Florence from the 19th to the 21st of October in the headquarters of Tempo Reale (Villa Strozzi – Via Pisana 77) by Matteo Marangoni iii (instrument inventors initiative), artist and expert in field recordings, sound archives, programming, and DIY electronics. The course’s objective is to introduce participants to essential concepts on sound landscapes and public space, using examples of musical and sound works ranging from the classic avantgarde to the contemporary. Special attention will be given to echolocation as an “active perception” technique. The City Sondols sound composition, created by the participants at the end of the workshop, will be presented to the audience on the night of Friday, October 21st.
