January 30, 2015 Submission Deadline – Call for Works. The Italian Strange Quartet is a new musical ensemble that intends to propose, together with a wide-ranging historical repertoire, an electro-acoustic research that enhances the potential of this one, through the lens of new instrumentation and sound practices.
To inaugurate its formation, the ISQ has created a call for submissions which aims, through the analysis of seven pieces of six different geo-temporal areas, to realize as many soundscape compositions diffused together to the pieces that respond to the following questions:
- What was the soundscape in which the composer and the audience were immersed? As it may have influenced the composition?
- What sounds would be heard, as well as instrumental, at execution time? Executions were outdoors, indoors ..?
- How do I compose a soundscape composition that it is coherent to the soundscape of the time?
The songs that we will examine are:
- Claudio Monteverdi – Quel Sguardo Sdegnosetto [1600/Italy]
- Henry Purcell – Music for a While [1600/England]
- Domenico Scarlatti – Sonata K89 [1700/Italy-Spain]
- Jean-Joseph De Mondonville – Protector Meus [1700/France]
- Gottfried Heinrich Stölzel – Bist du Bei Mir (Attr. Bach) [1700/Germany]
- Igor Stravinsky – Pastorale [1900/Russia]
- Igor Stravinsky – Chanson de Parasha [1900/Russia]
ISQ is formed by:
Francesca Adamo : Soprano
Mauro Schembri : Mandola
Vito Mandina : Keyboards
Pietro Bonanno : Sound Design

January 14-15, 2015 Hearing Landscape Critically: Music, Place, and the Spaces of Sound – Harvard University. The third meeting of the ‘Hearing Landscape Critically’ research network will take place at Harvard University, 14-16 January 2015. The aim of this three-year project funded by the Leverhulme Trust is to transform our sense of sound in landscape, and to document, investigate, and provoke critical encounters between the social and acoustic agents involved in the formations of landscape. The network embraces an interdisciplinary methodology and brings together scholars from diverse geographical contexts and academic fields (including art history, literary studies, and cultural geography) alongside creative practitioners, prompting new ways of thinking about sound, music, space, and place.
