INsono: sound microscopy and inner sounds
Until the late nineteenth century, the tendency was for people to develop instruments that were ever more capable of corresponding to the acoustic requirements of concert halls, which were becoming increasingly filled to capacity. In the twentieth century, mainly after the advent of sound systems that made amplification and recording possible, new instruments and various forms of musical expression began to appear that sought to reveal low-intensity sounds, resonances, vibrations and inaudible sound spectra. At this seminar, we will debate the importance of sound microscopy in discovering new sounds and new forms of musical expression, and their importance in learning about sound, in the different forms of sound imagination and in the establishment of personal musical languages.
