"Quintetto" is an installation based on the study of casual movement of objects or living creatures used as input for the production of sounds. The basic concept is to reveal what we call "invisible concerts" of everyday life.
The vertical movements of the 5 fishes in the aquarius is captured by a videocamera, that translates (through a computer software) their movements in digital sound signals.
We'll have 5 different musical instruments creating a totally unexpected live concert.
The installation was born with the collaboration of the Aesop studio.
In 2009 Quintetto wins the third prize at the "International contemporary art prize-Celesteprize" - Berlin.
Quiet Ensemble was founded by Fabio Di Salvo and Bernardo Vercelli in 2009. Their diverse and expressive experiences in interactive video and set design merge to create contemporary installations. Their interventions field parallels and tangents of musical creativity and artistic experimentation.
