The garden of hidden voices / Il giardino delle voci nascoste



Il giardino delle voci nascoste In an open space, hidden among the plants of the garden, I will install a couple of dozens of pocket-speakers that will spread strange voices (artificial sounds created with the physics modelling synthesis program Genesis) that will resonate like freaky animals, cryptic signals from outer worlds, unusual musical instruments, unintelligible voices, … The same pocket-speakers orchestra might be used in a site&situation-specific installation that will be performed-in a location to be chosen- following a collective score based on audio recordings made during the Symposium.
