Composed by Fabio Perletta between July 2010 and March 2011 using computer, audio morphing, re-synthesis, field recordings, found objects, acoustic guitar, digital interfaces.
Analogue and digital mastering by Daniele Antezza and Giovanni Conti [ Artefact Mastering - Berlin ]
The bits stream invades the whole human experience today, influencing the cognitive aspect, perception, learning and communication. Man is irremediably part of this paradoxical process that leads him to experience his emotions by interacting with 0 and 1 combinations, of which the digital videos, images and music are composed.
The numerical representation of life and the sensorial stimulation, achieved by combining data into binary format, replaces human primordial needs; by tending to an abstraction, man sees himself interacting with the machine. The most evolved cultural-technologic manifestation of this new human condition is depicted by the Affective Computing, which is the study and development of devices able to recognize, process and simulate human emotions. These machines should interpret the emotional state of human beings and adapt their behaviour to them: the detection of emotional information begins with sensors which capture data about human speech, facial expressions, psychological reactions, skin temperature and language. Giving machines emotional capabilities, it is possible to establish and simulate empathy between humans and robots. Transfer is a sonic reflection about all affective phenomena which originate with the use of digital interfaces: the emotions are thus converted twice (reality-digital, digital-reality), creating a transfer between the artist's original purpose and the users. Transfer has been composed between July 2010 and March 2011. All the recording sessions were been made in the summer of 2010 at the Gorges of Salinello (Abruzzo, Italy), a natural reserve located between two mountains, also known as the Monti Gemelli (Twin Mountains). This impressive valley is characterized by beautiful waterfalls, unusual rock patterns, caves, wild flowers and small life forms. Later on, all the organic sounds were processed using computer and morphing techniques, re-synthesis and digital treatments.
