« How does the world sound ? Composition & sonic environment »


As part of the Europe B-AIR project, these days have taken place in Cuneo (italy), at the Conservatorio di Musica G.F.Ghedini from 5 to 8 October 2022.

Taking inspiration from a phrase of Jean-Claude Risset (pioneer of musical research founder of Music Research Center ACROE and initiator of the AST-Art Science Technology concept): “One of my early desires as a musician was (…) to compose the sound itself, instead of merely composing with sounds.”

This contribution has involved, as active host, the METS (Electronic Music and Sound Engineering) Department of Cuneo Music Conservatory, as well as local realities related with B-AIR themes.

The event followed a format successfully adopted in previous face-to-face appointments: the mornings were devoted to public lectures, presentations, debates and meetings, while the afternoons and evenings were dedicated to on-field activities – research actions, workshops, performances – that also involved a broad public.
