1+1=3 sports on in Italy
1+1=3 featuring Atau Tanaka will participate in Helicotrema – Recorded Audio Festival. The presented piece entitled “Monitorn” is the outcome from the ongoing preparations for Transformation III in Paris.
The festival started in 2012, the festival is a non-profit platform for the promotion of narrative and multidisciplinary sound works – such as radio plays, audio documentaries, experimental poetry, field recordings and other timeline-based formats based only on an acoustic component – reproduced in the framework of collective listening sessions.
This year Helicotrema, as winner of the 5th edition of “Premio Imagonirmia, art residency and publishing project”, joins forces with Imagonirmia and Ovestlab to present a site-specific edition in the district of Villaggio Artigiano di Modena Ovest. Helicotrema 9 will take place at the end of September and will present a programme of listening sessions for residents of the district and visitors.
In this context the festival will use a loudspeaker system for sports events, excellent on voice frequencies, and a mobile system in quadriphony for compositions with wider spectra of frequencies. The location, one of the most important athletics stadiums at national level, can be a clue for inspiring the authors to propose sound research that reflects on body, competition, exercise. At the same time the festival remains open also to contributions on other subjects.
