Francesco Fusaro (Ed.) - Sonic Traces: From Italy
Part of Norient’s multi-layered, multimedia approach to the open question of «Italian Identity» in sound and music. Through a variety of approaches, from essay to memoir, interview, video playlist, and open letter, the book hopes to foster a broader conversation on the past and present of Italian culture, as it asks the unanswered question: What can be labeled as Italian music, after all?
Norient is an audio-visual gallery and a community (of practice) for the sound of the world: for contemporary music, quality journalism, cutting-edge research, projects, and events like the Norient Festival. Their goal is to support (sub)cultural diversity, broaden horizons, and open up dialogue across people, continents, and disciplines.
