Listen, Venice…

Asuka Akagawa e Ramon De Marco 

Listen, Venice… 

13.10.2023 – 29.10.2023

Listen, Venice… is the second part of the event Venezia Fabrica Futura, an eco-critical laboratory of a contemporary Venice projected into the future, presented at Complesso dell’Ospedaletto in May 2023.

On the occasion of the Biennale Musica 2023, two sound artists presented their installations that contemplate and reinterpret Venetian soundscapes.
Fabrica’s Japanese interdisciplinary artist Asuka Akagawa translates the anthropic activities that animate the city into sound and light while the Swiss sound artist Ramon De Marco, already resident at Fabrica, presents an awareness-raising method that enhances the beauty and diversity of the fragile ecosystem Venetian.

The program also included a series of events, including a round table, conferences and concerts by international sound experts, including Chris Watson, English musician and recordist; David Rothenberg, American composer, jazz clarinetist and philosopher; Jana Winderen, Norwegian mathematician and chemist; Francesco Bergamo and Nicola Di Croce, architects and researchers from Iuav and Sound Studies Hub (SSH!).
