Installation – 2010
8 minifans form a chorus that articulates the acrobatics of a balloon in the airspace above them. The balloon appears to behave autonomously, but is no more than a puppet controlled by the fans.

While visiting Italy in the nineteen twenties A. Sohn-Rethel speculated that, for the inhabitants of the place in which he was staying, the essence of technology was in its breaking-down. According to this vision technical devices actually start to work only when they break; by finding a new use for damaged devices, technology turns from a source of alienation into a vehicle of renewed child-like invention.
By investigating the night soundscape this project provides an auditory representation of the social enviroment surrounding night clubs, pubs and open-air spaces in the city of Florence, takling issues of local and global identity, noise pollution and surveillance. Between February and March 2009 field recordings were made in public places during the hours subject to municipal regulations limiting noise and alcohol sale. From the resulting archive a selection of sounds from twenty different bars, pubs, clubs, streets and squares was presented in the form of a sonic map documenting words and actions of unaware citizens and visitors alike.

interactive sound installation, 2008
Radio Box is an interactive sound installation based on radio broadcast, considered from a social and historical point of view as a repository of collective sonic memories. The interface is a radio receiver retrofitted with an Arduino board. The composition is generated by a software drawing on an archive of recordings of radio programmes. The installation offers a jurney into radio sound, reconsidering the role of old techology and questioning common assumptions regarding the boundaries of music and information, technology and art.
