The sound and visual artist Michele Spanghero intervenes within the spaces of Cinema Modernissimo, historical cinema in Bologna city centre, which will be reopened soon to the public. The sound installation “Again Anew. Before the film” has been realised by re-elaborating the audio recordings of the interviews that Gideon Bachmann made to the most prominent protagonists of history of cinema during his entire life. The recordings were stored in the sound archives of Cinemazero.
Spanghero’s works combine sound and visual arts with an accurate conceptual research. The installation for Cinema Modernissimo, promoted by the Fondazione Cineteca di Bologna, aims to actively involve the audience and to dialogue at the same time with the architecture of the building. The sound variations given by space and time, in fact, are essential elements in Spanghero’s practice.
