Finestra.Window, by Albert Mayr

from ANTS

Cardboard Box (cm. 14 x 14 x 2,6) containing: Verbal Scores (19 + 19 cardboard cards, both in italian and english) + 9 panels (heavy paper) with photographs and notes, by Laura Monaldi and Albert Mayr. Design by Giovanni Antognozzi. Produced by Albert Mayr and Giovanni Antognozzi.

Limited Edition of 100 numbered copies (cat # BX02).

With this new release in the “box” series, ANTS continues to propose "sound objects" that have to do with sound, even without explicitly containing it in a predetermined form. Starting from the experiences with the World Soundscape Project by R. Murray Shafer and the study of texts by Torsten Hägerstrand and Henri Lefebvre, Albert Mayr processes a potential score, a path / game in the world of sound and relationship with time and space. Albert Mayr’s verbal score is constructed in the form of a series of instructions provided to the potential user. It's a work that affects the ability to concentrate and the analysis of sounds. To do this Mayr offers us the most natural and obvious of the listening spots; the one that most commonly we have available: a window. The instructions contained in the cards of the score (the choice of which can either be preordained or random, full or partial, and that will provide a starting point for further personal processing) are indications, suggestions with the aim of helping in the work of "selection"
of sounds, devoting the proper attention, in a sort of training program for improving the quality of our perception, in space and time, of the sound world around us.

The boxset “finestra.window” is a set containing 38 graphic cards (the Verbal Scores, both in Italian and English) arranged in graphic form by Giovanni Antognozzi, plus 9 sheets with sample photographs and critical notes by Laura Monaldi and the author himself, still both in Italian and English language.

It contains no musical support. Every box is numbered.
