Helicotrema


Helicotrema is a non-profit festival initiated in 2012 that presents a program of recorded audio pieces.
As our website was hacked, this is a temporary website while we rebuild the catalog of the 500+ artists that took part to the festival in the last 11 years.



Inspired by the early decades of radio broadcasts, it investigates different forms of collective listening.The festival proposes a series of sound paths comprising sound works, audio plays, audio documentaries, soundscapes, experimental poetry and various formats based on the acoustic component.
Helicotrema borrows the format of the film festival, replacing the film screening with a program of listening sessions. This program aims to create site-specific situations, experimenting how the listening experience can be enriched and adapted to different contexts.


The festival is curated by Mario Ciaramitaro, Riccardo Giacconi, Giulia Morucchio e Daniele Zoico.
