Autoritratto

sound installation - Italy, 2015
electric guitar, amplifier, acoustic space

Contact, stillness. A thought.


A guitar lies on an amplifier. The amplifier, because of its self-noise and pickup's proximity, vibrates imperceptibly, spreading its motion to the guitar's body through the contact point. Wood resonates. Because of a prepared tuning, strings vibrate and interact causing a low frequency beat which develops during the time, and is influenced by feedback unpredictability and the acoustic of the space.
