from the concept of a geometry that is unknown to us as a kind of
non-human spatiality populated by forces and signs, this is a broadcast
based on short wave radio recordings and field recordings made in some
ambiguous places, in which I’ve made researches to realise some
of my musical projects. Places like Cathedrals, Sacred Woods, everyday
places linked to really particular states of consciousnesses; places
that hide deep forces; places that are through by a world of signals
A deep investigation of particular places, taking in the history of the location as well as the current site specifics to reconfigure a sonic panorama (or diorama) through its inherent transcendental aspects in order to create a dimension beyond the purely or merely sonic: a total perceptive and receptive capturing of the place and its visible and invisible tangents, transporting the listener to a new and hitherto literally unheard form, kind and ‘content’ of sensory experience and therewith: perception. From a specific time and place, to another (listening) time and place and in between.

TRACK 5: “The Dome Orvieto” – 10:48
LABEL: TOUCH MUSIC
DETAILS: “I was in Orvieto for 3 days and recorded some sound during the morning, trying to avoid the tourists. I always try to find the cathedral without too many people but at the same time there must been some, because their sounds allow us to perceive the reverb of the space.
Moreover, I’ve recorded voices from a choir during a celebration and I’ve utilised a sample of the organ of the cathedrals. The Dome of Orvieto is a fantastic gothic church. Orvieto is an Etruscan city and it’s on a hill in which caves were excavated by the Etruscans. During the Second World War the Nazis didn’t bomb Orvieto because of the amazing cathedral that they wanted to take back to Germany”
TRACK 6: “Thelema Abbey” – 9:14
DETAILS: This composition was realised inside the ruins of Thelema Abbey, Cefalù, Sicily. Short wave radio signals / Field recordings. The composition was recorded inside the Abbey in 2007.
