There is travel, there is noise, there are people.
Unsettled and disconnected, chasing sleep through the territories of his mind.
We journey with him, sensing, stumbling, inhabiting, escaping: breathing in and out towards release. Towards light.
Onironautica is a sonic narrative composed of a series of interconnected abstract fiction sketches, performed live and featuring original field recordings collected around the world.
La Cosa Preziosa
La Cosa Preziosa (Susanna Caprara) is a sound artist and field recordist originally from the south of Italy and based in Dublin. Her work is focused on exploring short-form narrative in all its guises, from the abstract to the scripted, through the creation of audio works composed out of her original field recorded material.
Recent works include a soundscape commission for the group show Landscape/ Soundscape at Penn State University (USA), the semi-biographical audio short Blinking (finalist, The Sarah Awards) and co-curating Mean Time, a large scale live performance inspired by the women of 1916 (Richmond Barracks and live broadcast on RTÉ Lyric FM).
Awards include the ‘Europe: A Sound Panorama’ juried prize (Goethe Institut Belgrade, Deutschland Radio Kultur, ZKM Institut for Music and Acoustics Karlsruhe, Radio Belgrad, European Broadcasting Union Ars Acoustica Group), Dublin City Council Artist’s Bursary Award (2012) and Project Award (2016), Culture Ireland Travel Award to Canada (2011) and Migrant Artists on Ireland and New Voices of Ireland bursaries (Centre For Creative Practices, 2013 and 2015).
