Graduating from the University of Montréal with a master’s degree in composition and sound creation, Nicola Giannini was offered a two-week artist residency at Sporobole centre en art actuel.
// Rebounds //
Rebounds is an acousmatic piece, composed for the sound diffusion device in the window of Sporobole. The work is inspired by the concept of rebound and the protagonists will be ball recordings from different sports. The type of material and the diffusion device make it possible to create a spatial musical choreography: a set of sound geometries among the sixteen available speakers. The intention is to explore the area around the Sporobole’s building with impulsive sounds, taking inspiration from the way in which digital models of space reverberation can be achieved, that is through the recording of impulse responses. The work is a tribute to Vespers from Alvin Lucier.
