Omschrijving werk

Albert Novello: "The focus of my practice has always been on how humans perceive sound and music: what unconscious mechanisms are hidden there, how can I alter one’s perception through sound, what is the role of the context, what are the effects of sound on our emotions, what associations do they suggest. I have been researching all those aspects since I was very young using all possible means at my reach: music compositions, sound and video works, workshops, scientific research and perceptual experiments. In my works I am interested in understanding, testing and exposing the tricky mechanisms of human perception in a broad sense: from synaesthesic associations between sound, video and movement, to the use of aural laws of stream segregation to deform sound properties, from the externalization of the intricate mechanisms of human brain, to the small details of sound properties and acoustics. Embedding reflections on human perception into my works allows me to direct the information in a rather objective way to the audience, with the precise intent to reach and tickle their attention. This is for me a way to sometimes show the limitations of our senses, or to expose our bodies' internal architecture and deep functionalities, or just to play with the audience's cognition of the world".
