Field Recording and Soundscape Composition

February 25 – May 6, 2019

The experimental music and audiovisual art season INNER_SPACE, organised by San Fedele Musica and Plunge, will host a series of six lesson coordinated by Maurizio Corbella and Nicola Scaldaferri. This cycle inaugurates a partnership between the Fondazione Culturale “San Fedele” and the Department of Cultural Heritage and Environment of the University of Milan. All meetings will focus on the relationship among artistic practices,  soundscape, and field recording. The aim is to provide food for thought about how music, technologies and sonic spaces relate to each other.

All lessons will take place at the San Fedele Auditorium, the only Italian concert hall equipped with an acusmonium, and will be followed by a concert or an acousmatic screening. Meetings start at 7pm, while following events start at 9pm.
