2018 – Villa Lontana

Sound design and multi-channel live performance developed and performed in the concrete garage of Villa Lontana. A Roman necropolis of more than 160 tombs dating back to the first half of the 1st century BC was recently discovered under the concrete garage. The sounds for this performance were developed on a quadrophonic sound system, designed to respond to the physical environment of Villa Lontana’s garage, later rendered to stereo for the production of a vinyl record (released 2019). The performance explored different senses of weight, density, and time and included a text-sound collaboration between Andrés Saenz de Sicilia and Adam Green, writer, artist and editor of ‘The Public Domain Review’.
