«The creation of a sound site corresponds to the realisation of an acoustic ecosystem. Its boundaries are the perceptual boundaries, whose frontiers are geophysically defined by sound. This sound site, installed inside Palazzo Garzolini – di Toppo Wassermann, is generated from the sounds of brass bars electroacoustically tuned in microintervals. They build a highly distended and changing ostinato (in an anthropological time that becomes a geological time) which is placed in the stairwell of the Palace (topological closed set). The sound, played through a gravimetric vertical order, suddenly splinters and reshapes in multiple elastic reflections of the inner surfaces, constantly shifting from a linear trajectory to a curved one. Each point of the closed set accepts an articulated and independent sonic signification. Sound and place merges.» – Giancarlo Toniutti
Giancarlo Toniutti, Udine 1963, composer and researcher. He’s active, since the late ’70s, in the field of experimental electroacoustic music. Since then he’s been working with sonic matter and its morphogenetic articulation. He has published several electroacoustic compositions internationally distributed, has performed live in concerts and created sound sites in much of Europe. At the same time, and jointly, he carries on his researches in anthropology, morphology, linguistics, musical theoretics etc. with publications in journals and books, lectures and lessons.
