Title: hope amongst chaos
Description: This piece is a conceptual interpretation of the sound of recession. Created using the sounds of malfunctioning machines and skipping records to symbolise a faltering economic system, the stuttering effect it can have on peoples lives, and the glimmers of hope and opportunity that emerge amongst the chaos.

F…K RECESSION, I’LL TAKE A SHOWER. by Fabio Coruzzi

F…K RECESSION, I’LL TAKE A SHOWER.

The sound of recession came up in a hot afternnon , in the middle of an Italian summer,.

Outside were 42 degrees and people were trying to relax and think about the nothingness, I was reading a newspaper, it was talking about recession and economic downturn. Just words after words, adding shambles to global chaos.

While I was thinking about in what kind of boat the world will sink,a friend of mine, a carpenter, decided that was it. He said: I dont’ give a damn about, I don’t even know what you are talking about, I am just a worker with the a level, nothing more, you know what? I’ll go to have a shower to refresh myself and take a nap afterwards.

So I went to record his “indifference” about this world made of numbers, theories and fobias. He was incarnating the common sense through the hot environment of South Italy. He was singing while taking shower, because singing brings good mood and optimism…..

That was the sound of recession, a big interrupting noise followed by singing songs under a refreshing shower.

Title: Blue screen of Death
Description:
An error of the system? A bug inside? when did it start? it’s the actual government or it comes from the past?
it is a matter of memory, blank memory, it seems that we don’t really want see or hear.
A little echo just pass almost imperceptible and still reminds
the country has more than 50 years of war, a fight of sides where the people seems not to care, people that hold an economy of war, hopping some day more investments for study, social security, and health. They believe that the new upcoming politician will accomplished his promises.
Now our neighbour has freeze all diplomatic relations, no commerce between the two countries.
capitalism, socialism or communism? whatever they are, their real interests are themselves, not the people.

Title: “economicrisis”
Description:
the feeling of loss and of misunderstanding on 9 overlapping voices of the first ministers of the 8 major countries and the President of the European Union talking about the NEW global crisis (every speech is taken from registration of the recent G8 or the World Economic Forum). so many words that no one can understand the sense.
