PARRROLE DI SUONO | Second cycle
PARRROLE DI SUONO returns with a second cycle of digital training sessions dealing with the themes of sound and new languages in music. Four weekly appointments with alternating internationally active scholars and academics, covering themes that are only apparently distant but actually all connected by the common thread of sound research: the languages of improvisation, the ideas of John Cage, new technologies in musical programming, and the sound landscape.
All these sessions will be available live on the centre’s Facebook page or in webinar mode on Zoom. To actively participate and ask questions to the speakers, one may register to the webinar by writing to firstname.lastname@example.org. Participation in the webinars is free of charge.
At the end of the cycle, all sessions will be available on Tempo Reale’s YouTube channel.
