closed When sound become form

The show

Curated by Carlo Fatigoni

How did sound progressively liberate itself from rules and codes to be investigated as pure vibration? How did the new electronic technologies stimulate the birth of innovative artistic idioms that including sonic manipulation? From silence to noise, from phonemes to instruments, through to the infinite possibilities of technical reproduction, the exhibition describes how over the years sound has permeated the artistic fabric to the point where it contaminate film, theatres, choreography, literature, publishing and the mass media.
