Thoughts after the first collection
“Walking among piles of metal waste, seeking, I was looking for objects with a direct and intense potential to produce interesting sounds, due to their explicit affordances, ways of react to simple impulses while creating unpredictable conditions of movements and sounds.
Very soon, I ventured into how hazy is their current position in human history, from the perspective of use as work tools. Through the lens of human beings - and human history – all of them are not clearly located. As matter of fact, they are too much eroded to let us recognize their original role within the productive system of persons and objects. Nevertheless, they are not broken enough to be considered junk or fragments.
They hold unexpressed chances to outline different paths in progress. They can be agents able to disclose potentialities of a way of being, far away from that one belonging to the instruments I’m personally used to. They are strangers and so they will remain. The entire project is an attempt to according regard to the quality of a world placed outside of me: things, with their inner corruptive and generative processes. I can relate them engaging my actions to disclose their movement and sonic answers. The sound therefore plays a very specific role: it results as consequence of the actants in context and it’s always under construction, out of a negotiation between the objects and me in our reciprocal activities.
The sound is the very space that I share with the object, it is our autonomous zone of connection.”
