"Untitled_L F" was born after a sensorial-acoustic experience in Venice, my home town, a year ago. While I was walking around Campo della Celestia, next to the house where I grew up, my attention was caught by the sound of a drop falling on the canalʼs water.
I got closer, and I realized how the sound broadened in the space sliding on that liquid surface, and together turning into something new: a dull, powerful sound, almost stone-like, with an unnatural and long echo. As minutes passed by, I varied the distance from which I could hear the sound. This acoustic experiment helped me to live a deep sensorial experience: I could explore solid and liquid phenomena at the same time.
Starting with recording the sound of the drop, I progressively created an independent auditory system that was able to re-establish that same acoustic context I experienced. Exploring and transforming substance with sound.
"Untitled_L F" wants to be a tribute to the city of Venice and its sounds; and to its capacity to give us extreme sensations, forming experiences that remain vivid in our minds". (Federico Dal Pozzo)
"Particles, bodies and each aspect of our existence are the expression of information processed by our brain or mind to obtain an interpretation of the physical world. But the physical organs of the brain may be only the circuitry that makes the mind humanly perceptible. In that case, a form of consciousness may remain. We just don't have the apparatus to change the electromagnetic radiation into mechanical sound waves. The brain does for the mind what the radio does for the music". (Gerald L. Schroeder)
Camilla Martini, video maker and documentarist, is following our dive into the electronics, reporting our shows and works. Here you can find a teaser shot on January 9th 2016 at S.a.L.E. Docks, Venice; our Electronic Orchestra is performing the 3rd movement of "Silver River", Pleiadum Constellatio, with the dance interpretation of Marianna Andrigo. Stay tuned, more material to come!
The Electronic Orchestra was made by: Chironomia, LECRI, Belinda Frank, Alessandra Trevisan, Nico De Giosa, Patrizia Mattioli, Aldo Aliprandi, Alberto Favretto, Bertrand Rossa, BEA, Johann Merrich.
Electronicgirls has been happy to be part of Women in Sound Women on Sound Forum - Educating Girls in Sound at Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts on 22nd April 2016.
Electronicgirls took part in the initiatives with a sound artwork, Collage #2.
Collage#2 is a piece of music conceived by Johann Merrich and composed with the collage technique applied to the electronic sounds. It summarizes the activity of Electronicgirls. Twelve different tracks - collected in various Electronicgirls' releases - have been selected and assembled, thus creating a new whole. Now unite in one flow, the sounds trace a path of our collaborations and display disparate acoustic textures and contrasting attitudes toward electronic sounds.
Collage#2 has been made with the music of:
Alessandra Trevisan, B.E.A., Chironomia, Gravida, IOIOI, Isabel Nogueira, Kalalunatic, Neutica, Patrizia Mattioli, Patrizia Oliva, Tiziana Lo Conte, Xxena.
Collage#2 is the second piece of a series started in 2010 and it has been created especially for WISWOS 2016.
Ideation/composition: Johann Merrich
Music: Alessandra Trevisan, B.E.A., Chironomia, Gravida, IOIOI, Isabel Nogueira, Kalalunatic, Neutica, Patrizia Mattioli, Patrizia Oliva, Tiziana Lo Conte, Xxena.
