At the end of May Helicotrema will be in Ravenna as part of Marea, a project curated by MU.

On the occasion of Marea, Helicotrema presents four different collective listening sessions at the Classense Library, where it will be possible to meet unexpected acoustic presences and be transported to remote places. We will move through many latitudes of sound and compositions, through dark and luminous places, noises and silences.

On Friday 25 Helicotrema will open with Bestiario, a collection of animal sounds and buzzes. Afterwards, Metatext will bring the listeners through subtle words, soundscapes in the form of radio plays and post-apocalyptic scenarios.

On Saturday 26 Helicotrema will continue with Le Freak c’est chic, an extravagant journey between political theories of art, conceptual practices and meditation sessions, and finally Er Tajo, an audio essay on collecting and editing sounds.
