Fabio Perletta’s ‘Due Musei’ to support World Health Organisation’s COVID-19 Response Fund
The coronavirus outbreak is disrupting culture significantly, placing countries in lockdown and forcing people to stay home. 'Due Musei' (Two Museums) invites listeners to pay attention to seemingly useless things, in the attempt to let them re-discover small sounds and find peace in their homes. It documents the sound of human activity altered by two different architectural spaces. Listening is recommended at relatively low volume.
Recorded in 2014 at MAXXI’s library and in 2019 at Chichu Art Museum’s long corridors, narrow passageways, triangle courtyard, variable rooms and artists’ galleries (Turrell, De Maria).
To raise even more awareness around the pandemic’s impact on musicians everywhere, Bandcamp is waiving its revenue share on sales today (Friday, March 20th, from midnight to midnight Pacific Time), and rallying the Bandcamp community to put much needed money directly into artists’ pockets.
All monies raised from this edition will be donated to the World Health Organisation’s COVID-19 Response Fund. Thank you.
