Un suono in estinzione is an art & science project aimed at monitoring climate change implications on alpine glaciers through an artistic exploration.
Sudden collapses of sections, noises, opening of crevasses: these are just some of the possible sound phenomena that occur on glaciers during the seasons and that climate changes trigger more frequently. These are precious documents, as these sounds are the acoustic representation of the symptoms of the change in progress and a tool for monitoring that gives information on when and in what frequency these phenomena occur.
Through the installation of custom recording devices, we will monitor the changes from inside the Adamello glacier in Italy throughout the seasons. Data will be collected during expeditions as well as sent in real time to be visualised and experienced on an ad-hoc digital platform we are building. Curated by Umanesimo Artificiale
>> Un suono in estinzione will be presented – in form of documentation – at the Ars Electronica Garden in Fano, as well as during the live streaming on Saturday 11th from 5.30pm.
NEUNAU’s sound investigations develop from the smallest details conveyed by a sound source, capturing and studying these sounds, searching for their musical potentiality, with the aim to produce audio tracks, documentary, performance and installation, where the main character is the sound itself.
