LISTENING SCORES

feedback

The project consist of a series of listening scores that I have developed since 2009 as part of my research on sound, space, and the body. The final version of the first 8 pieces has been completed in 2016 with a residency at Overtoon and an exhibition at iMAL. A book publication containing the first 8 pieces + other 20 new ones is currently under development and will be published in 2023.

UP IN THE VALLEY


Up In The Valley is a self organised workshop led by Davide Tidoni that took place in Valle Sabbia (Brescia, Italy) from 2013 to 2019. The workshop consists of a series of listening exercises and performances specifically designed for mountain locations. Activities are presented as part of different walking excursions and explore acoustic principles such as propagation of sound over long distance, directionality and movement of sound, reflection, and the threshold of audibility. See logistics and documentation images from previous editions.

Through a series of scores based on spatial listening, psychoacoustics, and sound-guided movements, the workshop encourages the active role of the listener and their capacity to perceive and engage with sound.

Grounded on the concept of “listening as intervention”, the workshop leads participants to explore their potential to touch, modulate, and interfere with the production and propagation of sound.

A short list of possible activities includes: listening to the sound of your footsteps; walking to the wall with your eyes closed without crashing against it; touching the participants with a microphone; listening from inside a cardboard box; playing the “analog” filter with your body; listening through the wall; producing sounds by blowing air on a paper sheet; moving in space trying to avoid any sudden feedback occurring between microphone and loudspeaker; finding the spot where two different sounds are perceived at the same loudness; walking away as far as possible from the sound source without loosing it; using the body of the other participants as absorption panels,…
