PHONOCENE

 

PHONOCENE

PHONOCENE è una teros-narrazione in forma musicale che prende spunto dal simbolismo animale per immaginare nuovi ecosistemi sonori.
Che cosa significa pensare alla capacità del ragno di tessere tele, prima ancora di una trappola, come un’espressione di stile? O l’ec(h)o-localizzazione del daubentonia madagascariensis come una strategia percussiva più che evolutiva?

PHONOCENE è uno spazio che non vuole raccontare la musica che gli animali fanno, ma piuttosto quella che potrebbero fare.

Tardigrades (Tardigrada) are a phylum of
eight-legged segmented micro-animals found in diverse regions of Earth's
biosphere. Tardigrades are able to survive extreme conditions – such as
exposure to extreme temperatures, extreme pressures (both high and low), air
deprivation, radiation, dehydration, starvation and life in outer space – that
would quickly kill other forms of life, making them the most resilient species
known to man. Tardigrades have been on Earth for about 600 million years having
survived all five mass extinction events, and it is thought they could be
around long after humanity has died out.



They would 100% survive the Apocalypse, or a harsh noise wall.

The Luna Moth (Actias luna), also called the American moon moth, is a Nearctic moth in the subfamily of Saturniinae, a group commonly associated with giant silk moths. Luna moths are usually pale-colored with bright green wings which extend into fluttering thin tails and feathery antennae. Luna moths symbolize transformation, inner guidance and intuition. As an extremely sensitive species, they function as a reminder of the pleasure of slowness and molecular receptivity.

The Aye-aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis) is a lemur native to the island of Madagascar and the world's biggest nocturnal primate. The most unusual feature of the aye-aye is its extremely narrow middle finger, which it uses to tap on trees to find grubs under the bark. The aye-aye listens for echoes to find hollow areas in the trees, a method called percussive foraging, alongside with patterns of echolocation. Due to their odd and eerie appearance, aye-ayes are in many cultures commonly associated with death and illness.
