OTO Sound Museum | POLISONUM | Passi 13”36’
PASSI is a walkable mirrored surface, a site specific work by the artist Alfredo Pirri. It is a lake of mirrors that reflects and expands space, disorients to seek a new orientation, distorts and overturns reality to offer new perspectives of observation thanks to a vital process that feeds on the steps of those who cross this border made of reality and illusion. Each step defines a transformation of space and the image reflected, which is shattered, millesimated and finally pulverized with the passage of time. As result of a collective and individual action, the break determines the spatial perception and simultaneously becomes our sign of existence.
PASSI 13″36‘ is the sound work presented in OTO SOUND MUSEUM created by Polisonum, who collected and composed the sound given by the action of the breaking of the steps generated on the work of Pirri. The composition is the result of a dramaturgy that returns the portrait of experience, movement, passage. Made up of unpredictable acoustic signs, creaks, crunches, crackles and rhythmic accents, the sonority of PASSI 13″36′ becomes the restitution of a threshold as tangible as it is interior: that border between the real and the apparent that we are invited here to tread, twist and overcome through sound.
The work PASSI 13″36′ – also recorded on vinyl in a limited edition as result of the collaboration between Alfredo Pirri and Polisonum – was created in 2019 at Palazzo Altemps in Rome where Pirri’s work was set up under a sixteenth-century loggia.
