"From a technical point of view the Sound Reportage are
timed recordings, made on an endless cassette, using a
cassette recorder without the erasing head. Various
recordings (little fragments of the existing sound material)
overlap in a quite random way; if the sounds that was
recorded before are enough loud and have a distinct
presence, they'll inform with themselves the recordings that
will overlap them. The dominant frequencies and the
characteristic of the sounds themselves and of the various
acoustic environments will be reinforced and will become
more and more manifest; rhythmic elements, if they are very
frequent, will be magnified or overlapped, creating new
Sound Reportages are really researches about the
soundscape of certain environments, but I like to think on
them also as reflections about our own memory, in which any
new experience can magnify or fade or erase the memories
and the traces of the ones that came before." Francesco
