We are overexcited to finally announce the release of the audiovisual essay titled “Il mondo di sotto” by Chiara Caterina and Nicola Di Croce. Click on the image below to go to the release page.
“Il mondo o niente”, the brand new film by Chiara Caterina scored by Nicola Di Croce, is going to be featured by a film festival on the next October. Until then, the audiovisual journey “Il mondo di sotto” needs to wait before emerging.
Here is a blind preview composed to get in the mood of the work. Click on the image below to go to the release page.
The full release is postponed to mid-October. Stay tuned.
The next release in Galaverna will be featuring Nicola Di Croce and Chiara Caterina. Their work is an audiovisual journey born on the scent of “Il mondo o niente”: a film produced by Le Fresnoy, Studio National des Arts Contemporains (Lille, France), and entirely shot in Basilicata (Italy) between February and March 2017.
Chiara Caterina is a visual artist and video maker. Her video practice undertakes a reflection on the language of non fiction film, on the borders often blurred and slippery between staging and reality and on the role of the author in this subtle process. Her main interest is how we define “truth” in nonfiction cinema, how it becomes meaningful to shift the ethnographic focus from the phenomena themselves to the practices of interaction between observer and observed.

Nicola Di Croce is a architect, musician and sound artist. He has a PhD in Regional Planning and Public Policies. His research deals with the relationship between urban and regional planning, public policies and soundscape. Such relation explores new potentials for urban regeneration, participatory processes and local development. Listening and field recording practices lead to a new perception of the environment, where the sonic language becomes a narrative and design vehicle; an essential tool for the understanding and the redefinition of public space.

We are so happy to announce in this early summer that “Piàn di Resnèi – February 2017″ by Emanuele Magni has been released today 21st june 2017. Click on the image below to go to the release page.
We are so pleased to announce that the next Galaverna release will be featuring the sound artist Emanuele Magni.
Emanuele Magni is an engineer and electronic musician from Lecco. His musical environment ranges from electronics to noise, embracing acoustic ecology and field recording practices. He develops an attitude that enhances the sound as a bearer of meanings in itself. He is also the curator of the net-label Grottarecords.
“Piàn di Resnèi” is a recording captured in Pian dei Resinelli – Lecco (Piàn di Resnèi in local dialect), a plateau at an average elevation of about 1200 metres, in february 2017. Emanuele captures recordings of places looking for two main characteristics: a pleasant acoustic and a balanced overlapping of sounds: that’s what he found in that place in a winter day.
Due to some issues difficult to solve by the timescales established, we are forced to cancel the release scheduled for the 21st of May. We apologize, the next release is set for June 2017.
