Agoraphonia is the result of collaboration of Italian sound artists Francesco Giannico & Giulio Aldinucci. Agoraphonia will be out on July 18th via ia Dronarivm. Focused on the relationships between people in the environments where these are intertwined with more ease: the squares. Thanks to an international call lasting about 5 months and left last July 18, 2015 (date of the world listening day) numerous recordings were in fact collected from all over the world from as many squares containing sounds and photographing a special moment, a specific situation. “Shantangjie” is the first excerpt. Listen below.
A town square is an open public space commonly found in the heart of a traditional town and used for community gatherings. Based on this basic perspective, it is easy to notice how the soundscape of this living center could represent not only sonically, but also from a cultural point of view, a priceless document. After an open call lasted 6 months to send most interesting audio material concerning the theme of the “square” the samples have been selected and reworked in order to create an ideal symphony of all living squares all over the world.
