EPISODE #4 THE MISSING EYE BY MATTIA PARODI AND PIERGIORGIO SORGETTI
28.02.2021 | LENGHT 1:06:35
The fourth episode is inspired by “The Missing Eye”, a photo book by Mattia Parodi and Piergiorgio Sorgetti published by Witty Books (2021). The book holds their research around the photographic device and its visual projections which aren’t deduced from our immediate experience of reality but are the results of the combination of different cognitive paths in which all senses participate with sight. We put together a sound collage where the pioneers of electronic music and the hypnotic voice of Ginevra Shay are combined together to stimulate all the senses. The synthesizers elevate this episode into a realm of its own where we let ourselves guided by words about textures and citrus. An ode to dreams and memories.
