PARRROLE DI SUONO | Third cycle
PARRROLE DI SUONO returns with a third cycle of digital training sessions on the themes of sound and new languages of music. Five weekly events where internationally renowned scholars and teachers take turns on the listening topics, reaching to fields that are only apparently distant from each other but which are all connected by the thread of research: studies on the sound landscape, research in Italian progressive rock, immersive audio technologies, the relationship between sound and architecture, the auditory experience.
All sessions will be available live on the centre’s Facebook and Instagram pages. Participation to the webinars is free. Upon the cycle’s end, the sessions will be available on Tempo Reale’s YouTube channel.
