Suite on domestic life

This temporary Sound-Installation was designed for the furniture department of the Shopping Center Risparmione in Suno (Italy).
The loudspeakers were mounted in hidden places, for example under the bed, in the kitchen complex, in between sofas, in the clothes closet… The suite consists of 17 movements, whose density spectrum ranges from very dense to empty (silence). The order in which the movements were played was determined by random. The sound material consists of sounds of domestic life: real or distorted, social or intimate. During quiet movements, one’s attention is drawn to the actual acoustical environment of the Centro Risparmione. The basic idea is to provoke a subtle irritation, a sort of capped reality which intensifies and expands the physical space and the acoustical experience within that space.
