Olivetti Builds: Modern Architecture in Ivrea

“Shapes” di Francesco Mattuzzi

 

Five sequences evolve through places that remind of a space trip. It’s a journey across volumes and shapes, both inspired and absorbed by nature. Time stands still, frozen in a science fiction atmosphere. Humanity is rarefied: tiny life-forms come to life in this “rediscovered Atlantis” scenario.

 

 

The soundtrack and sound design have been created ad hoc for this project by Chiara Luzzana. Through the use of modular synthesizers and analogue processors, she turned the original sounds of Olivetti machineries and environments into an audio path. The soundtrack weave an acoustic journey and arouses a feeling of “being there”. Every single sound embedded in this audio path is, in fact, a real sound that has been “caught” through precision microphones and then turned into music.
