Readymade Metal Book

 

 

Readymade Metal Book is the first body extrapolated from the Maestri Pino srl

 

“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​.”
