With this new release in the “box” series, ANTS continues to
propose "sound objects" that have to do with sound, even
without explicitly containing it in a predetermined form.
Starting from the experiences with the World Soundscape
Project by R. Murray Shafer and the study of texts by
Torsten Hägerstrand and Henri Lefebvre, Albert Mayr
processes a potential score, a path / game in the world of
sound and relationship with time and space. Albert Mayr’s
verbal score is constructed in the form of a series of
instructions provided to the potential user. It's a work that
affects the ability to concentrate and the analysis of sounds.
To do this Mayr offers us the most natural and obvious of the
listening spots; the one that most commonly we have
available: a window. The instructions contained in the cards
of the score (the choice of which can either be preordained
or random, full or partial, and that will provide a starting
point for further personal processing) are indications,
suggestions with the aim of helping in the work of "selection"
of sounds, devoting the proper attention, in a sort of training
program for improving the quality of our perception, in space
and time, of the sound world around us.
The boxset “finestra.window” is a set containing 38 graphic
cards (the Verbal Scores, both in Italian and English) arranged
in graphic form by Giovanni Antognozzi, plus 9 sheets with
sample photographs and critical notes by Laura Monaldi and
the author himself, still both in Italian and English language.
It contains no musical support.
Every box is numbered.
