CLAUDIO CURCIOTTI: SOUNDS FROM NEPAL AND INDIA
Claudio Curciotti travels the world recording sounds that explore the loudness of contemporary world and its relation to the many cultural aspects of different societies.
On "Indica: Sounds from India" (his second release with IH) he explores the loudness produced by human activity, machines and environments on cities such as New Delhi, Mumbay and Varanasi. India is a country Claudio knows very well through his project "Loud India" where he is involved as a phonographer, photographer and video artist capturing images and sounds and presenting them to the world on different formats. Indica features a sound release composed by short fragments and a book with photos taken by Claudio and Eleonora Trani.
'Nepalese: Sounds from Nepal' is a selection from the many many recordings Claudio captured during his trip to Nepal that greatly display the beautiful sonorities of this young country with an ancient cultural legacy and spiritual and religious tradition. The recordings are complemented with a series of photographs by Claudio and Eleonora that provide visual cues to the beautiful sounds captured here. Phonographic works like 'Nepalese: Sounds from Nepal' are always an amazing experience that literally recreates a journey through many places with different sonorities as it establishes a relation in real time between the listener and a passed moment in time that will never repeat itself.
This is the first publication of this kind by IH, where sound acquires a meaning beyond a mere imaginary, as it serves a window between our lives and the lives of other people and the sounds that define their everyday life. impulsivehabitat.com/index.htm
