Lecturer: Davide Tidoni

When: January 21-22, 2012

Meeting point: Via Alessandro Monti 13, Brescia


This workshop is an investigation into the social and acoustic affordances of sound in public spaces. We will spend two days exploring the city of Amsterdam through the practice of Soundstorming, a direct exploratory method for fast prototyping of outdoor sonic interventions.




With a particular emphasis on listening modes and sound-space relations Davide Tidoni realizes a variety of works that include site specific interventions, acoustic territory explorations as well as sound ethnography fieldworks and listening workshops. He has presented his work at the Barbican Centre – London (2012), the Ars Electronica Festival – Linz (2011), the Venice Architecture Biennale (2010), the School of Humanities and Social Sciences, University of Exeter (2009), and RAUM – Bologna (2009).


What to bring


Participants must bring along their own sound-making devices for use in outdoor installations and interventions. Any kind of old or new media equipment is welcome. Good examples are bent electronics, found radios, small speakers, megaphones, mp3 players, microphones, tape recorders and so on.
