In the performance Download-now (2004), conceived in collaboration with Margherita Morgantin, held at the Italian Cultural Institute, 11 people wearing felt hoods will move in the space around the public. Each hood has two side protruding cones, like deformed ears, that hide two
speakers that are connected to a CD player hidden in the pocket of the performer. They diffuse sounds,
sentences. It is as if whispered thoughts have escaped by mistake creating stories, riddles and music. The space
becomes dense of acoustic micro-events, which put the viewer at the centre, the words both in Italian and
English, are taken from a correspondence between Virginia Woolf and Vita Sackville-West, in which the two writers discuss love, daily life and their passion for writing. The recordings for Download-now were made by LORENZO BIANCHI, CLETUS, PAOLO LAVAZZA, LARSEN, MANFREDI ROMANO, MANNYPOL, MARZIA MIGLIORA +
PAOLO LAVAZZA, MARGHERITA MORGANTIN+ALICE GUARESCHI, PIRANDELO and ( R ).
