We explored the music of an orchestra and a choir through our sensory platforms in search of the internal connections between body, time and space and the meanings of the universal language of music. How does a Rossini crescendo make us feel? And how playful can a violin pizzicato be? How much melancholy in a trumpet solo? And again, why does the Star Wars theme really make us imagine floating in space and how can a relaxing massage of a cello playing Bach make us feel? A truly unique moment for those who wanted to approach music and sound in a new way.
Music and body of Giselle (classical ballet, 1841) in the vision of the great choreographer Mats Ek have become accessible to the blind, deaf and non-disabled public thanks to the work with Associazione Fedora and to the vibrations of the sensory platforms. Talking about music in silence is always a great emotion and a potential to continue to explore. A real honor to know and lead the meeting with PompeaS antoro, dancer and assistant of Mats Ek for 25 years, 100 times in the role of Giselle. Vignale In Danza Festival.
𝗣𝗿𝗼𝗴𝗲𝘁𝘁𝗼 𝗭𝗼𝗲 is a path of playful activities aimed at bringing deaf children, aged 7 to 11, closer to reading and writing, promoting their participation in social and cultural life. The stories will be told by a hearing actor and a signing deaf actor and facilitated by the sound compositions of a musician. The LIS interpreter will be present for the entire duration of the event.
Stanza Elementare is a multisensory artistic installation inspired by the four elements: earth, fire, air and water. The purpose of the performance is to reconnect the person to the heritage of shared sound memories that already belong to him and that inhabit the world around him. This is also achieved through the olfactory experience, with a series of dedicated fragrances. You enter one at a time, approaching the various experiences in succession. In the center, a sensory platform allows sound interaction even for the deaf through vibrations. The installation is part of the No Limits project, at the Pergine Festival and is fully accessible to people with sensory disabilities.

This workshop, led by musician and music therapist Tia Airoldi, wanted to explore the soundscape around and inside of us at the time of the pandemic.
By developing listening attitudes and working on the sampling and composition of the sounds that surround us every day, the group has developed a very personal inner creative path, discovering new spaces that, perhaps, we did not even know we had before.
This sound - art installation represents a journey into the most ancient sound memories into the maternal womb to reconnect the individual to his own reality.
Sound has been made accessible to the deaf thanks to sensory platforms. The exhibition, organized by Associazione Culturale Fedora was presented in Milan, in the public library of Via Valvassori-Peroni in December 2019.
