Postcards From Italy

by A.I.P.S. Collective

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    The Italian Archive of Soundscapes (AIPS), is a collective of sound artists formed in 2010 by Alessio Ballerini and Francesco Giannico in order to document the changing face of the Italian soundscape and to promote the ecology of sound through a variety of workshops, soundwalks and soundmap projects covering different Italian cities including Taranto, Bisceglie and Rome.

    Taking their cue from Gianmarco Del Re’s column on Fluid Radio, which profiles the most interesting sound artists and musicians currently operating within the Italian electroacoustic scene, Giulio Aldinucci and Attilio Novellino translated the Postcard from Italy project into an album and a live event.

    To coincide with the event, a special installation by the AIPS collective took place at SoundFjord (14 June - 21 July). The show aimed to explore the concept of identity linked to that of place by focusing on sound recordings of areas in Italy affected by earthquakes, landslides and man-made environmental disasters, alongside those of the new towns borne in their wake interspersed with music that explores space and meaning in other ways.

about

Taking their cue from Gianmarco Del Re’s column on Fluid Radio, which profiles the most interesting sound artists and musicians currently operating within the Italian electroacoustic scene, Giulio Aldinucci and Attilio Novellino translated the Postcard from Italy project into an album and a live event.

For this especially conceived event, the musicians have used their field recordings as raw material for three three live sets taking their own personal and very distinctive approaches to sound into uncharted territories by mapping out new immersive environments.

To coincide with the event, a special installation by the AIPS collective took place at SoundFjord (14 June - 21 July). The show aimed to explore the concept of identity linked to that of place by focusing on sound recordings of areas in Italy affected by earthquakes, landslides and man-made environmental disasters, alongside those of the new towns borne in their wake interspersed with music that explores space and meaning in other ways.
