Intermission workshop is a time of collective and individual research on the processes of sound organization and mixed techniques of movement in space (athletics, dance and parkour)through the use of the cymbal as a sound instrument and as a bodily prosthesis.

Starting from a question on the ways in which the city can be crossed and made to resonate, Fabrizio Saìu responds by articulating an experiment on the relationships
of interference and connection between soundspacing and art du déplacement

Intermission is a collective performance and a multitude in motion. The multitude is made up of professional traceurs and participants prepared for the intervention through a workshop phase. The instruments used are percussion cymbals dragged on the ground by strings. The organisation of the sound, in bands and durations, is interwoven with the articulation of the bodies in the urban space, becoming a multitude in drift and producing a suspension of the functional life of the city in favour of an active and contemplative participation in reality Intermission spreads in a dispersed and decentralised way, organising itself in small groups, sometimes in single traceurs, who travel and explore the city, marking horizontal and vertical trajectories at varying speeds and intensities. The modification of the acoustic environment, the defunctionalization and reuse of urban structures, the interruption or modulation of the city's travel flows, are the ways and purposes of this practice.

The action is conducted in small groups made up of traceurs and free participants trained in the practice.It is an intervention conceived and realized starting from the urban and acoustic characteristics of the city and intervenes on the flows (human, animal and mechanical) that cross it.

Peripatetiche dell’ascolto is a journey that combines walking, microphone recording, and headphone listening into a single experience of exploring and discovering the sonic environment.

The use of ear prosthetics, microphones, and headphones allows explorers to revitalize a mediated and conscious listening experience; microphone recording enables the crossing of the threshold of the audible and navigating the boundaries between proximity and distance to a sound event; headphone listening allows the creation of a shared acoustic environment and a common area of intervention, a place for action and collective listening.

Peripatetiche dell’ascolto sessions provide a delightful and surprising opportunity to share individual and collective practices of active listening.

The session involves engaging in exercises of active listening and sound production in continuous dialogue with the sonic environment and the group, concluding with a live set where the transition between ambient sound and electronically processed sound seamlessly blends together.

Past workshops: [2017] Triennale (Milano), [2022] SuperPark!  (Parco dell’Adamello Brenta), [2023] BAO Ground Music Fetival (Cascate di Monticelli Brusati - BS), [2023] Cantieri Internazionali d’arte di Montepulciano (Riserva Naturale Pietraporciana - Chianciano Terme).




Sound exploration workshop
Partecipants: 5-10 participants 
Media:  cymbals
Duration: 1 day - 2/3 hours  

Idea and workshop by Fabrizio Saìu


Sharing focuses on the study and practice of the processes of live production of a concert for athlete-musicians and 30 percussion cymbals.
Athletic exercise and musical performance are practiced in their specificity and then relocated to a third-order practice that makes bodily use
in continuous transit between the athletic and the musical, the pivotal element for the realization of a performance in concert form.

Past workshops: [2019] Spettro (Brescia), [2023] Fattoria Vittadini Sharing Training (Milano).
