"10 perturbazioni..." is an installation-composition in which a microphone
begins to resume, in continuous recording, the sound external to the
room (place) of listening.
Subsequent treatments of the starting sound material (with subsequent
diffusions of the "treated" sound) go to make up an informational circle:
the sound produces information, information produces other sound that is
in turn analyzed and so on. In the installation the sound is projected
employing some mini-direct induction diffusers, which make the surface
with which they are in contact vibrate. In this way the sound is "colored"
by the specific type of surface (resonant) material. The work is designed
to interact with any sound expression detectable in the environment, thus
including any musicians that establish a sound and behavior related to
the operating system.
It is a site-specific work as it depends in a structural way by the type of
sound that occurs outside-inside of the place of listening; It is also room-
dependent because the result is strongly influenced by the materials and
the acoustic characteristics of the place itself.
