Stefano Gervasoni (composer), Marco Liuni (researcher), Luca Morino (computer music designer) and Francesco Cretti (developer), present Web Wall Whispers (WWW), an interactive web-based soundwork

Conceived as part of the Segni per la Speranza artwork produced by Fondazione Spinola Banna per l’Arte: it’s a virtual high-quality exploration of a mural, that generates a different interactive musical composition at every access. WWW is an audio-visual experience with an open form determined by the exploration of the user; the work is conceived so as to offer a fruition that is never repetitive, which may take place through rapid exploration or spread over the time span typical of a concert or a traditional audio-visual installation.

The user has access to images of the mural work in high resolution and the continual unfolding of an interactive musical work. Thanks to a dynamic and stratified concept of audio streaming, the listening process is always polyphonic: the sound material activated by the gestures/actions of the user overlaps in various layers with various degrees of presence.

The listener traces the musical form as s/he visually explores the wall and, guided by the images and the sound, navigates through their own audio-visual trajectory.

In partnership with the Fondazione Spinola Banna per l’Arte, Politecnico, and the Conservatorio de Turin.
