Soundscape, "Life in Blue"

I love sounds of natural landscapes. In this work I built with many types of sound synthesis what was initially a "new world" for my ear. My soundwork called "Life in Blue" refers to the natural soundscape of the sea, under the ocean, where everything was born, where life is manifested with great fervor.

Sound Miniature, "Infinito"

This work has been composed for combining poetry and sounds in a single context. The whole track is only composed by voices taken from the recitation of a poem by Giacomo Leopardi entitled "L'infinito". The development of the composition is divided in a short time period. Infinity contained in a finite space.

Revolutionary Sound, "Human"


Alex Calò has submitted a piece for the Revolutionary Sound call for soundworks.
His work Human has been selected to be exhibited within the [FreeQuencies] exhibition.
From the author's note:
“saying that I consider rather obvious to associate ‘revolution’ to ‘electronic’ I choose not to use synth tokens in my piece. Nonetheless my composition deals with the revolutionary perspective of the human being, but both in symbiosis and conflict with the ‘machine’. With “Human” I tried to tell the story of a century ('900) signed by wins and losses - political, social and cultural - choosing some of the events I thought were the most representatives and emphasizing the evocative power of the speech-word. I tried to place the human being as the one and only character all thought the listening experience”.
