Barriera presents Coming Together — Listening session n. 1, first of a series of meetings hinged on sound perception curated by ALMARE association in collaboration with the researcher Vincenzo Santarcangelo. The event guides the audience on a listening path, analysing three different models of sound space, each one focused on a specific relationship between auditory perception and spatiality. Each model is associated with a composition and a particular listening mode, as well as the speaker layout and the choice of playback support. Three distinct environments answering the questions: “Where is Sound?” and “What Sound is?”.
Coming Together is an event that highlights the listening as a practice, as an active research for a sound never given once and for all; an event that inhabits the interstitial terrain between organized sound and organized listening. Not a lecture, but an invitation to cross the Barriera’s architecture putting yourself in a free listening perspective. Because, as stated in one of the presented tracks, the sound always happens “somewhere in the future.”
