Special Projects

Prospettive Sonore


The artistic residence “Prospettive Sonore” is realized with the support of the MiBACT (Italian Ministry of Cultural Heritage and Activities and Tourism) and SIAE (Italian Society of Authors and Publishers), within the “For those who create” program. He plans to create a 15-day artistic residence for 6 Italian composers under 35, selected through a specific call for applications, and aims at the specific musical training of the participants and the creation, performance, recording and recording of new musical compositions.

The main theme of the project and new compositions will be the natural environment and its sounds. During the residency the winners of the announcement will participate in lectures, laboratories, educational outings and seminars curated by professors and leading personalities of the contemporary international music scene (Alvin Curran, David Monacchi, Giovanni Mancuso, Paolo Zavagna, Antonio Della Marina) and will dive in contexts of particular naturalistic interest of Friuli Venezia Giulia Region, searching for the sound peculiarities that animate them.

The sound tracks collected will then be reworked and inserted into the new musical works that the young composers will be called to compose during their residency. In this way the style of traditional musical writing for specific instruments will be combined with new technologies (live-electronics) and with the natural sounds of our territory. At the end of the residency a concert will be held in Slovenia in which the new composed works will be presented and a CD of the performance will be made to allow its dissemination. We report that on 25 March 2020 we will host Alvin Curran in Malborghetto Valbruna (Udine) for a workshop and final performance.
