/// PRIMO SCENARIO | scenari sonori per improvvisazione collettiva
Emiliano Bagnato [IT]

A wooden cube, an aluminium plate on the top of it. Two pairs of headphones and an old telephone handset through which plunge into the Scenario, interact, tell its story. The words, for who hold the handset, are the media; for those who wear the headphones, the sound of the plate. Under it there are microphones, their signal is electronically processed by the composer. Along the edges of the cube there are various objects; anyone is free to use them on the plate to create timbres, sounds, harmonies.
The visitor, who habits the Scenario, is the one who completes the composition by improvising; leaving a tangible sign, visual and auditory, of his own precious individuality. Without him, the Scenario is an empty, silent place.
