Death and Rebirth of the Landscape

In an era of rapid environmental and social change, landscape assumes a role of primary importance as a place of memory, identity and connection with nature. The call aims to explore the different facets of the contemporary landscape, interrogating its changing nature and multiple implications.

This new 2024 edition includes 2 parallel calls on the same theme: one dedicated, as every year, to audiovisual projects and another, exclusively dedicated to sound projects.

Alberto Novello

Musician, Video artist, Teacher

Alberto Novello a.k.a. JesterN’s practice repurposes found or decontextualised analogue devices to investigate the connections between light and sound in the form of contemplative installations and performances. He repairs and modifies tools from our analogue past: oscilloscopes, early game consoles, analogue video mixers, and lasers. He is attracted to their intrinsic limitations and strong ‘personalities’: fluid beam movement, vivid colors, infinite resolution, absence of frame rate, and line aesthetics. By using these forgotten devices, he exposes the public to the aesthetic differences between the ubiquitous digital projections and the vibrance of analogue beams, engaging them to reflect on the sociopolitical impact of technology in a retrospective on technologisation: what ‘old’ means, and what value the ‘new’ really adds.

Barbara De Dominicis

Musician, Singer, Performer

Besides using her voice and analog electronics, Barbara loves collecting sounds, inventing sound textures and non-linear storytelling.

She has also curated a series of podcasts entitled "The Cat Cinderella" with the aim of promoting the dissemination of works by women artists on the brink between net_art, sound art
and audio documentary. At the end of 2012 she started to collaborate with french visual artist Aude Francois: they conceived Self Made Worlds a performance for voice, electronics, and visual explorations [liberally adapted from ”House of Incest” by Anaïs Nin]: a dialogue between the organic body depicted in video and the sounds and voices present on the stage. Her new solo album Body Maps {out on december 16th 2022 on Folderol Records} has been inspired by Jean Luc Nancy’s Corpus. A blend of spoken word, electroacoustic textures and instruments, found sounds and voice; these tracks evolved from a series of improvised recording sessions held in Italy between 2018 and 2021. Barbara is working on a new project making use if rediscovered private memories [old photographs, letters from strangers, sounds of objects no longer in use, semi-forgotten nursery rhymes, etc] .
