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.

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.

A BALLOON FOR LINZ



A Balloon for Linz brings to light the acoustic response of specific locations in Linz. Together with the video, a series of exploratory walks were organized in the city of Linz. Participants were invited to pop balloons and listen to the acoustic architecture of the urban space.
The project received an honorary mention at the Prix Ars Electronica 2011.

Solid-Void

solidvoid

The performance explores the architecture of specific sites by projecting white noise in space.

The fundamental parameters of the performance are: architectural elements (walls, colums, openings, …), body movements (360° rotation, presence/absence, movement speed), direction and movement of sound (direct/reflected, filtering), and the positioning of the audience (distance from the performer, positioning within a certain perimeter).

Here is the IMAGE DOCUMENTATION from a performance that i did in Bologna in 2014.
