a new category
with Cage, Banfi, Donatoni and Rauschenberg in the background…
Instead of using denoising plugins to “clean” an audiofile, here they are used to unveil different soundscapes, ghostly or shimmerish panels of sound and silence. Not a very new idea but pretty fun to implement. As Rauschenberg says here, an act of poetry. (Check this one too).
What I like most of this process is the opportunity to fully explore forms and categories I love: tableaux vivants, sine waves, noise, anxiety, dream. Panel forms which pursue only and foremost an iconoclastic vision.
ναυσίη (nausiē ), noise, bruit, rumore, geräusch…
il rumore è l’alter ego,
la pietra filosofale:
a golden stone
is still a stone.
ansia • rumore • sogno
“Radicalizing: listening is attention, not apprehension;
to listen is evidence of what happens as sound,
not knowledge of what happens with sound.
So: sound is the presence of an absolute,
his annunciation is its own revelation,
listening then it certainly is not the act by which
you come to a discursive apprehension,
but the moment at which perception mediates
and joins the multiplicity in the unity of formal knowledge.
Listening is immediate experience in which knowledge
coincides with the action: listening is ascesis.”
