Immagini per Diana Baylon LP
Die Schachtel 30 / ITA / 2016
The long and mesmerizing single piece of analogue electronic music that develops over the two sides of the latest Die Schachtel "silver series" LP is a soundscape composed by Teresa Rampazzi for the artist Diana Baylon's 1972 exhibition at the modern art gallery "Il Fiore" in Florence. Diana Baylon (1920-2013) was a cross-disciplinary artist active in abstract and programmatic art. In 1972 exhibition, Teresa Rampazzi realized this long 'soundtrack' (in her words) to be broadcasted in loop. Sounds were made with the analogue equipment she used at the time, revealing her stylistic tendency to create a pulsing, drone-like sequence of harmonizing electronic tones. «The inner space of the exhibition» – she wrote – «is made of sound, for the whole duration of the exhibition. The work is composed by a series of sound events, with both informal and aleatory features, in a continuous flux, and there is no planned predetermination in any of the various sections».
