Agnese Banti, sound artist and cutting-edge experimental musician, proposes an inventive composition in which loudspeakers, around which the performance revolves, stop being tools for sound diffusion and become forms of presence with which to engage. Organized in a choreography of ever-changing sounds, the loudspeakers are stage partners for Banti, whose performance interrogates her own voice as something other than her own self: she plays with it and relates to it, she constructs and deconstructs the space through a process that is ritualistic and playful in how it spreads sound across a blank canvas.
Agnese Banti is a sound artist, musician, and overtone singer based in Bologna. For several years, she has collaborated with various personalities and entities in the field of sound and performative experimentation. Her artistic activity revolves around composition for space, choral voice, studies on soundscapes, research on the relationship between gesture and sound, traditional music repertoires, and the collaborative dimension of the creative process.
