Sinking into the Dark (ongoing)

“Sinking into the Dark” is long – term ongoing performance that began in 2019, focused on psychoacoustics, deep listening, mutations of radio waves in time and space, minimal body’s movement, the use of self-built antennas, real-time radio waves reception, and pre-recorded signals of electromagnetic waves coming from VLF (Natural Radio phenomena), and from the outer space, recorded during artistic residencies, and at the Astronomical Observatory (Astrofili Urania) in Italy, as an ongoing collaboration.

“Sinking into the dark” is deep critical thinking, an exploration of the invisible power of our unheard “natural” and “polluted” sonic environment, its constant mutation in time and space reflecting the reality of our techno-society and its relation to nature, fused with electromagnetic radiations from the Cosmos.

Here, an important factor is to work with “The Unpredictable” and the process of transforming/orchestrating these signals into a real-time musical flow. Trying to create an amplitude of subliminal listening, an immersive, hypnotic, and psychedelic trip, an open door to a sonic multiverse.

The first Premiere was, at KM28 (Entangled Sounds series), Berlin 06.12.19

Instruments: Antennas, radio receivers, detector, pre-recorded sound on tapes, and reel-to-reel tape machine.
