Who is Afraid of MAGNITUDO? | Call for Voices

Back to all news

Are you Afraid? Do you want to vocally react?


If you are craving to express yourself we give you an opportunity! We are looking for your artistic act of resistance for the new initiative promoted into the frame of Atlas of Transitions BiennialWho is Afraid of MAGNITUDO? | Call for Voices

MAGNITUDO rises from the desire to gather a multitude in a chorus capable of embracing a common space and time.  It is a participatory project meant to be a large scale urban chorus, a collective act of voicing for public space, performed by inhabitants, citizens, students, people of all backgrounds and ages. At the moment any form of synchronized closeness is prevented, but the need for meeting is more alive than ever.

Before meeting you in the liveness of choral action, we would like to launch a Call for voices:
We invite you to share a signal, whisper, cry, note, silence, vocalized word, breath…
Imagine your vocal expression as a form of tuning into the initial notes of MAGNITUDO composed by Meike Clarelli and Davide Fasulo available at the audio attacched here.

Each vocal segment - lasting up to 45'' - will compose a single sound wave, an acoustic image capable of including everyone's voices. The mosaic of moods, affections, emotional states translated into sound will be the starting point for MAGNITUDO's choral performance.
