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.

‘Emigrant’ by Osvaldo Cibils

Location: Rovereto(TN) Italy

Title: emigrant
Description:
So many tears and so many sighs crashed in the vigor of the longing never let us see the curiosities of space and of tranquility products of self-defense.

A saddlebag full of horizons that rise excites the admiration of the fools, the benevolence it stalks tracing the path that goes from indomitable will to the lot awaiting it.

With the hunger of surprise the shell of individuality becomes reversible and does not ignore anymore whether it is right or wrong in its choice.

The light intelligence, completely, imitates the gestures of intuition and enters the realm of ideas and feelings, then sorts them buries them in the dirt and proceeds with firmness.

The temple was left far behind.

Title: zero balance (drawing zeros)
Description: zero balance (drawing zeros) is a direct recording of the drawing of zeros on paper. The repeated task is an attempt to center myself as I feel the gravitation pull of the thousands of bank balances approaching zero with each passing hour of the present economic recession.

‘Heart-Lung Machine’ by Eldad Tsabary and Yifat Cohen

Name: Eldad Tsabary and Yifat Cohen
Location: Montreal, Canada and Tel Aviv, Israel

Description:

The Sound of Recession

The sound of recession is collaborative. It is the result of music and art making that is based on sharing and working together. It focuses on shared intellectual, emotional, and body knowledge and creativity rather than ownership and ego. It is about opening up, experimenting with new ideas, listening to others, and letting go of personal fixations and old patterns. It requires disposing of self importance and experiencing the moment.

Heart-Lung Machine by Eldad Tsabary and Yifat Cohen (2009)
Duration: 5:51

Heart-Lung Machine is a collaborative composition between Canadian composer Eldad Tsabary and Israeli performer/improviser Yifat Cohen, in which Tsabary processed and reorganized improvised material provided by Cohen. The specific reorganizational technique used in the piece was the creation of rhythmic strata through multi-layered gating of individual sound sources, in which each gate was configured to open at different amplitude and in response to different parts of the spectrum of another (inaudible) sound source. Auditory streaming occurs as a result of developing rhythmic patterns in each gate, individual envelope settings, spatial positioning, and sometimes signal processing. This gating setup was created in Pro Tools.
