“Loud Listening” reviewed by Rockerilla

Si chiama AISP (Archivio Italiano Dei Paesaggi Sonori) ed è un iniziativa firmata da Alessio Ballerini e Francesco Giannico per promuovere in Italia l’ascolto dell’ambiente che ci circonda.

“Acute Inbetweens” reviewed by Peek a Boo

In other reviews, I have already written that in the creation and perception of soundscapes, the step to video art or other visual art is not that big. This has to do with the intangible, sometimes the ethereal, often the captivating effect of music. This could be called the musical power of abstraction. Music is […]

Sparked by an initial meeting back in 2006 between these two artists in sound, Acute Inbetweens is the fruit of three years spent exchange ideas, files and field recordings long-distance between Australia and the Unites States.
