10 LISTENING EXERCISES, IMAL, BXL

Since 2009 Davide Tidoni has developed listening exercises through his workshops and artistic research on acoustics and the body. Ten of these exercises are presented at IMAL in the form of posters. These prints include graphic representation of the listening exercises with instructions to be realized as independent situational performances. The posters serve not only to capture the exercises in concept but also as guides for participants to encounter sounds distributed in space in relation to their sources considering shifts in frequency, amplitude, and rhythm.

Concept & realisation: Davide Tidoni / Production: Overtoon & Davide Tidoni / Graphics: Davide Tidoni & Marzia Dalfini / Editor: Brian Shabaglian / Printing: L’Appat Atelier / With the support of the Flemish authorities

November 18 – December 18 2016, Wed-Sun, 13:00-18:00
IMAL, quai des Charbonnages 30 Koolmijnenkaai, 1080 Brussels

3 NEW VIDEOS ON LINE – LINKS TO WATCH THEM

I’ve recently published on line 3 new videos. They all relate to my research on listening as intervention and the activation of the acoustic space. +++ IN THE BLINK OF A EAR The video sees me triggering the acoustic response of an empty building by hitting the wall with a stick. To emphasize the hit, I adopted the following visual association: silence=black / sound=light. The title of the video is a clear reference to that. +++ UNDER THE BRIDGE Passages under bridges have always been interesting places for acoustic tests. In this video, the resonance of a concrete tunnel is triggered by the explosion of a series of firecrackers. +++ EXAGGERATED FOOTSTEPS This is me walking through different rooms of the same building. I compare the acoustic response of each room by means of a pair of metal plates that I attached to the sole of my shoes.

Questions of Spectatorship? Santarcangelo Festival 2015

Forget the Theater! Go To The Stadium is one of the audio pieces that I’m going to present at the PIATTAFORMA DELLA DANZA BALINESE, Santarcangelo Festival 2015. My presentation is centered around the theme of the PARTICIPANT SPECTATOR. Football supporters are one of the last example of active (counter) audience that still exists and performs in our western civilized world. Listen To Forget the Theater! on soundcloud.
