New Audio Piece on Deutschland Radio Kultur

The sound of White Noise will be broadcasted on the 29th of April on Deutschland Radio Kultur. This new audio piece is part of my research on listening as a form of intervention. Following a series of vocal instructions, the radio listeners are invited to perform specific actions that alter the way they perceive white noise.


I FOUND MY WAY out now on Desetxea!

The video piece I FOUND MY WAY is out now on Desetxea, the web label anarchically run by artist Mattin. The video was made in Bruxelles in 2013 as part of a workshop on Urban-Modes-of-Listening led by Raviv Ganchrow. In the video, I use my voice as an existential strategy that allows me I) to discover the acoustic response of the city and II) not to be absorbed by the grayness of the metropolis. You can watch I FOUND MY WAY on my YouTube channel too. Enjoy!

New Stuff on YouTube / SoundCloud / Flickr

Some of my research videos are now available on MY YOUTUBE CHANNEL. The videos are all related to my interest to site-specific sound effects and to the act of listening as a form of intervention and activation of space. I’ve also uploaded a selection of my audio recordings on MY SOUND CLOUD PAGE as well as a photographic documentation of some of my past workshops on MY FLICKR PAGE . Enjoy!

Davide Invades… The Bologna Program

Mike the Drums, New Performance in Brussels

What happens when we stop thinking that the primary function of a microphone is to capture sound and translate air pressure into electronic signal? What happens when we violate the basic rules and principles of audio engineering and recording technology? Mike the Drums is a performance where, rather than a pair of drumsticks, I play drums with a pair of microphones. The project explores the physical properties and affordances of the microphone and presents a more intuitive and analog way to approach audio technology. The performance is at DE LA CHARGE, Rue Théodore Verhaegen 152, SAINT-GILLES, BRUXELLES. 7pm, 12 december 2014. READ THE FULL PRESENTATION HERE.

ONLY FOR ITALIAN READERS – SORRY!!!.


New Audio Works at RADIOFONICA, Milan

I’m happy to announce that I’m part of RADIOFONICA, a 3 days event of Radio Art in Milan. For Radiofonica Tidoni will present two works that are also two meetings and two characters: The Night of the Shooting Stars e Back to Back with Paolo. His approach is anti-radiophonic and therefore it works: almost no editing, no explanation, no formalisms. You perceive being at the exact point where documentary and sound art rub against each other and this rubbing makes a damn noise. RADIOFONICA is a project by SPAZIO O’, curated by Alessandro Bosetti and Anna Raimondo. 6/7/8 november 2014 at SPAZIO O’.
