Festival /012 > Sound Park
Sound Park is a new open space of the Kernel Festival, which will be located in the natural context of Villa Tittoni Traversi’s park in Desio, venue of the second edition of the Festival. An initiative that encourages reflections on the relationship between art and context, artifice and nature. It proposes an investigation into the mechanisms able to stimulate an unusual interpretation of the auditory dimension in relation to the other aspects of perception.
The project plans the realization of a series of sound installations which, during the Festival, will enhance the park, entering the natural setting, defining a new horizon, without denying its harmony. The works will be designed, built and set up, by the students of a number of prestigious academies in order to offer participants an invaluable opportunity for visibility and international sharing.
The young students, artists and musicians, selected by the professors to represent each academy, will be required to present sound installations designed to communicate with the beauty of the park and the natural elements of the landscape, helping to create a new and evocative audio, visual and perceptual scenery. The sound reflections of the installations will be a stimulus for visitors, who will be invited to interpret the environment according to a new emotional perspective.
These are the Academies involved:
