"Canale Audio": Venice Underwater Soundscape




"Canale Audio" is a sound installation by the italian artists Hilario Isola, Matteo Norzi and Enrico Ascoli at Bevilacqua La Masa Foundation (Venice). It brings the unknown sound scape of the other face of Venice, the one submerged, inside the museum, revealing an unexpected urban life, if not impossible to explore with the ear.
Here are some sample recorded from the window of Palazzetto Tito, the exhibition venue. 
We marked some points and post some comments to explain what you are listening

"Canale Audio" is part of the exhibition entitled ‘A Ballad of the Flooded Museum’, curated by Paola Nicolin. The exhibition opens on Thursday 26th August 2010, during the opening days of the 12th International Architecture Exhibition of Venice. The exhibition, housed in Palazzetto Tito rooms (Dorsoduro, 2826) , is a reflection on water as a contradictory element, able to link and divide, preserve and destroy, remind and submerge forever, radically changing the perception of space, light and bodies. The project is inspired by Jacques Cousteau utopia of house settlements in Sudan deep sea and a possible life underwater.
