Weigh Station/Waag +2
Friday, April 28, is the fourth Bolzano meeting with the international “CreativeMornings” network: once a month at Weigh Station for breakfast, connecting with more than 200 cities in 67 countries around the world.
Take an hour for you before you start your work, we’ll put coffee and content there, don’t forget the cup!
In April, the proposed theme is “MOVEMENT,” and we will talk about it over breakfast with Stefano Bernardi, musician and sound worker.
“Movement = Sound. Without motion, sound does not exist; any material must be set in motion to sound, and thanks to air, sound propagates through space. Silence is possible only in the absence of movement. Starting with a staging of “silence,” wearing noise-canceling headphones, we learn to consciously perceive the sound environment. Listening to ourselves, others, and our surroundings. Empowering people with respect to the sounds generated and perceived as an act of acoustic ecology. From the micro to the macroscopic, everything is in motion even if it appears inert, ergo everything sounds. Starting with some sound installations we can address movement and its reflections on different materials.”
APRIL – THE SPEAKER
Stefano Bernardi is a sound worker and musician. His installations are based on multiple sound declinations. In the first phase, he studies the interaction between sound waves and liquids, then latex balloons and light. He creates original songs that put these materials into motion, stimulating the acoustic, visual and tactile perception of the audience.
To get started in the right spirit, we recommend that you also register on the CreativeMornings platform and become part of the Bolzano community already.
