In a return to the tradition of playlists presented in Tempo Reale’s studios, a new format begins for listening to and reflecting on the sound landscape. “Suonare L’Ascolto”, i.e. “Playing the act of listening”: the title may seem like a provocation. How can one play the act of listening? Is it possible to compose, perform, improvise the act of listening, in the same way as we use these actions and ideas in common musical practice?

We are culturally accustomed to consider the act of listening as something that is more of a passive behaviour than not: the musicians are on the stage and the listener, in the best of cases, will listen; an album, a radio, or a sound file will play, and their creator through them, while we, in the best of chances, are open to receive, to avail ourselves of the sound message reproduced by the loudspeakers or headphones. The concept of being open, implicit within the idea of listening, is not culturally sufficient to ascribe the status of a true action to the act of listening. Those who give and those who receive are placed on a scale with an implied agency: on the one hand there is the idea of an unpredictably active procedure, on the other is a passive procedure. With “Suonare l’ascolto” the Italian section of the International Sound Landscape Forum (Forum KlangLandschaft) is offering a mix of works by musicians – compositions, sound documentaries, visual recordings, documents – that suggest the possibility of a creative activity within the careful and conscious act of listening to the environment.
