TUTTO QUESTO SENTIRE — EXHIBITION

Recontemporary / Lounge

14 February — 3 March 2024

Opening 14 February, 6:00 pm

Indications

An exhibition curated by Recontemporary and Seeyousound International Music Film Festival, realized with the support of Camera di commercio di Torino.

Recontemporary and Seeyousound International Music Film Festival present, in conjunction with the 5 years of the association and the 10 years of the festival, an articulated cross-media program that celebrates the 10 years of the international collective TUTTO QUESTO SENTIRE (TQS).

The intention is to consolidate a dialogue that began in 2019 between the research supported by Recontemporary regarding video art and new media and the increasingly important connection between cinema and music promoted by Seeyousound, through a schedule that branches out into a series of events to investigate the works of the TQS collective.

The exhibition explores four archival video works: Albe, Exercises On Displacement, Isola, and Synchronized And Non-Synchronized Exercises Of Arrhythmic Empathy.

For those who wish to delve into the artistic practice of the collective, it is possible to participate in a live performance at Cinema Massimo, a listening session of the new vinyl Space For Luminescent Actions (2023, Osàre! Edition) by Recontemporary, a talk, and a DJ Set by Iwasa, all within the association’s spaces.

TQS was born in 2014 from the meeting of Olivia Salvadori, Sandro Mussida, and Rebecca Salvadori. Their way of collaborating has developed over time organically, following exchanges that dealt with reflections on space and the search for a shared place that could accommodate the individual practices of the three.

Rebecca Salvadori has always worked with video in a non-linear way: materials assembled in blocks strongly connected to experimentation in the musical field. Olivia Salvadori focuses on vocal research beyond genre limits. Trained as a soprano, she has always experienced the voice as a sculpture, a vibrating material in which inner and shared space become one. Sandro Mussida’s research revolves around the practice of intentional listening, the relationship between acoustic and synthesized sound, and the connection with the environment.

TQS constitutes a system of experiences that unfolds generatively through residency projects, events, films, and publications that deepen the relationships between different sound traditions, the perception of time, and the environment.

This project is curated by Alessandro Maccarrone.

SEEYOUSOUND INTERNATIONAL MUSIC FILM FESTIVAL
The first italian festival focused on the lasting and mutually enriching relationship between cinema and music was born in 2015, in Turin. National and international premieres make up four competition sections: LONG PLAY DOC (documentaries), LONG PLAY FEATURE (fiction features), 7 INCH (short films), SOUNDIES (music videos). In addition to the competition, there are two exhibit sections: INTO THE GROOVE, which has always been the “pop” side of the festival, mixing genres and trends, ranging from the latest musical trends to the cult and classic names in world music history, and RISING SOUND, committed to discovering and proposing stories in which the inspirational power of music is intertwined with global, social and political issues, breaking away from the merely business and stereotypes’s laws; distant or nearby stories that can inspire, motivate, entertain and raise some thoughts. Seeyousound is not just the festival itself, it continues throughout the year with a rich programme of events, collaborations, contaminations and synergies, always focusing on the relationship between music and image. In just a few editions Seeyousound has grown together with its audience, and has carved out a role for itself on the Italian and international scene. In 2018 went on tour with the project On the road: Palermo, Milan, Bologna, Florence, Pisa, Lecce, Rome. In Lecce, collaborations are activated with local realities that help trigger a strong involvement of the territory and allow the event to gradually take root in the Apulian city. In 2020 Seeyousound evolves with the addition of a new format for the competition: FREQUENCIES, a training course for young musicians and composers concerning music applied to silent movies. A moment of artistic performance happening during the festival days that concludes with a contest awarding the best soundtrack composed by the workshop participants. Seeyousound is a member of AFIC (Associazione Festival Italiani di Cinema) and is one of the founding members of MFFN, Music Film Festival Network, an international network of twelve festivals from different countries. With its daring approach Seeyousound will continue its evolution because music can’t stop!
