The Giardino Sonoro installation is a dynamic sound space, conceived as a constantly evolving project over time and
space. For the Venice Music Biennale 2012 the installation consists of a physical component (Architettura Sonora's
sound modules and the steel ring, designed by a team led by Salottobuono) and an immaterial component, that has in
Architettura Sonora's ASG software (Automatic Soundscape Generation), developed by Simone Conforti and Lorenzo
Brusci, its main component.
Seven musical compositions, specifically commissioned by the Music Biennale 2012 for this installation, are fully reproduced, although interactively spatialized, every day from 19:00 to 20:30; from 10:00 to 19:00 the compositions are continuously recomposed, through a continuous interpretation of the garden atmospheric conditions, relegating to people interaction with the ring the real time modifications of the spatial presence of the meta-compositions.
Visitors are invited to explore the garden and interact with the ring.
