Presentation of work in progress from a joint residency program for sound artists Attila Faravelli and Ryoko Akama, organised by Ramdom within the festival Ogni Altro Suono, in collaboration with La Semaine du Son / De Week van de Klank and Waking Life festivals.

This multidisciplinary project aims to explore the different forms that water can assume in its physical, symbolic and spiritual states, in a constant dialogue between ancient and contemporary,

reinterpreting and promoting the rediscovery of the culture of water in different territories and traditions. The residency foresees research and the creation of site-specific projects such as masterclasses, public talks, discussions,  and performances.

Through a talk, demonstration and Q&A, Ryoko will discuss ideas and methods she uses for her installation work and performances, as well as how these have shifted and changed during the last decade. Attila will then present a small selection of his field recording work and the current state of his collaboration with Ryoko within the context of the Aural Tools, a project consisting of a series of simple sound producing objects.


Ryoko Akama is a Japanese-Korean artist working with installation, performance and composition, residing in Huddersfield, UK. Her works sculpt domestic appliances and scrap wastes with invisible energy, especially interested in heat, magnetism and gravity, into kinetic contraptions. Interested in the nature of relativity, culture and system, her artistic practice examines architecture, environment, conflict and fluidity.

Attila Faravelli lives and works in Milano (Italy). In his practice he explores the relationship between sound, space and body. He is founder and curator for the Aural Tools project, a series of simple objects to document the material and conceptual processes of specific musicians’ sound production practice. Aural Tools are acoustic devices for relating sound to space, the listener, and the body in ways unavailable through traditional recorded media such as CDs or LPs.
