Descrizione:
Daniela Cascella e Lucia Farinati invited him to create a work for Sound Threshold, a project that explore the relationship between sound and landscape, art and acoustic. Watson lived in residence in the Center for Alpine Ecology in Monte Bondone, Italy, to create 'Cima Verde'. Watson è stato ospitato in residenza presso il Centro di Ecologia Alpina del Monte Bondone - sopra Trento - dove ha realizzato Cima Verde Dosso d'Abramo, Cornetto e Cima Verde. Sulle tre cime del Monte Bondone soffia il vento; cristalli di ghiaccio, vapori acquei e variazioni di pressione si uniscono ogni anno in una danza, ne profondo blu del cielo. Questo è suono che diventa luce. Giuù per i pendii alpini attraverso pascoli d'alta quota e dentro le foreste, una montagna congelata di suono si scioglie da un blocco monolitico, in una distesa ordinata di sette stadi, atraverso tremila metri di habitat acustici senza uguali. Forme e musica, ritmo e suono, una serie di erformance rituali per orecchie animali. Chris Watson, 16 maggio 2008

Chris Watson is an english artist and sound recordist. He is one of the world’s leading recorders of wildlife and natural phenomena, and for Touch he edits his field recordings into a filmic narrative. For example. The unearthly groaning of ice in an Icelandic glacier is a classic example of, in Watson’s words, putting a microphone where you can’t put your ears. He was born in Sheffield where he attended Rowlinson School and Stannington College (now part of Sheffield College). In 1971 he was a founding member of the influential Sheffield-based experimental music group Cabaret Voltaire. His sound recording career began in 1981 when he joined Tyne Tees Television. Since then he has developed a particular and passionate interest in recording the wildlife sounds of animals, habitats and atmospheres from around the world. As a freelance recordist for film, tv & radio, Chris Watson specialises in natural history and documentary location sound together with track assembly and sound design in post production.
