Cloud Murmurs

web project
www.cloudmurmurs.com 
2013-2014, in-progress

This project collects sound recordings taken in different dacenters, rooms where we store our data, websites and sensitive informations, as big clouds following us everywhere.

Clouds seems to us intangible and impalpable, silent, due to their impossible distance. So servers, hidden and jealously protected, continuously working far away from our eyes (and ears).

Actually it’s a noisy space, dominated by strong winds of the cooling fans perpetually turned on that overwhelm any other sound. But if we listen to carefully, we perceive something else: hard disks cawing, voices of technicians working in the near office, muffled sounds from the outside. We can hear many deep and soft murmurs.

I am sure the if we could stand undisturbed, thousands of meters high, in the clouds, between the roars of the winds, we could hear the little murmurs of ourselves.

In a botanic garden I made a sound installation where an artificial voice pronounce all the 155.941 chloroplast nitrogen bases of Tobacco plant. Nitrogen bases makes the DNA of every living being, they are like letters that compose the words of a discussion, with the changing of their place changes also their meaning. In this way I made the plant speaking which described itself, literally…

Alfabeto Suonato

2007 (restored in 2015)

Playing Alphabet is an interactive installation composed of two computer keyboards. All alphabet letters are used to be heard in the same time, all of them are pronounced by male and female artificial voices. The two users can keep quiet or listen to the letter which they want pushing a button; female voice will be activated using small, and male using uppercase letters. The work was born as a sound game with letters, it could be played trying to pay attention to the other letters heard playing, but it’s also a battle between man and woman and for whom keep quiet the other.
