Electric Salon with Davide TidoniEventJune 15, 2017
Listening / Intervention
Davide Tidoni (IT) leads us in exercises in the new modes and experiences of listening offered by loudspeakers (‘sound, space and body’), using instruments you bring or have made in the hacking workshop.
The workshop is open to anyone concerned with the possibility of interaction between sound, space and listening. The main aim of the workshop is to offer, through direct practice, a wide range of listening experiences in order to lead participants to recognize sound as a concrete presence that puts the listener in relation with bodies, materials and space. Through the practice of specific exercises that stage phenomena of reflection, absorption, filtering and the threshold of audibility, a work will be developed on the perception of sound in space and the quality of one’s listening.
Davide Tidoni is a researcher in the field of sound and listening. With a particular emphasis on observation, action and participation, he realizes a variety of works that include site specific interventions and live performances as well as audio projects and listening workshops. He has recently completed a sound ethnography about the northern Italian football supporters group BRESCIA 1911. Part of his work can be accessed on the internet at the following links:

Orpheus Electric Salon
Orpheus Electric Salon returns with a flash-sequence of events in June – weekly sessions to show, learn, develop and play sound-work. Nicolas Collins hosts a series of guests addressing topics important to everyone working with sound.
Calling musicians (electronic and steam), sound-artists, multi-media artists, performers, composers, hackers, instrument builders – these salons cover a range of ideas relevant to us all, whether established practitioner, curious musician or absolute beginner.
Each week there will be hacking workshop, a chance to share your work, a hands-on introduction from expert artists to crucial elements of contemporary sound-work – and perhaps a chance to play together.
Thursdays 17.00 – 21.00 through June
Electric Salons at Orpheus are open for all and free to join, but registration is required (max. 25).
