The Klanghimmel MQ installation aims to sculpt and redefine the space through the sounds projected by the loudspeakers, that combined with the environmental ones create a new acoustic space. Therefore, it is about rediscovering a familiar place - modifying our perception of it or shaking our sensorial habits - through "other" sounds.
In these regards, I was intrigued by the idea of using a de-contextualized sound, in particular the one of a classical instrument like the violin, which is "accidentally" also my instrument.
Consequently, "Incostanti Periferiche" is a composition, which can be somehow considered as instrumental.
Other essential aspect is to give a sense of the space even more stratified than the one given by the position of the loudspeakers, thus to create not only a horizontal, but also a vertical movement. This gives the illusion that some sounds come from farer away than their effective source, while others are like whispers in the ears.
The most remote presence - a sort of sound cupola - is an improvisation played on prepared violin. The apparitions of the sound objects model themselves on this track and they detach from it like in a high relief with different degrees of presence and transience.
