Panphonia is an electroacoustic composition based on field recordings of a particular type of soundscape, that of abandoned rural villages built during the fascism time in Sicily and that today are often uninhabited. The composition considers the internal and external side of matter as demiurgical actions.
Outside the body of the Villages, the transitory landscape reoccupies the site, lying on the border like a symphony of sounds whose body and shape are of the same material, destroying the organs of the Villages, the buildings are returning to earth. Thanks to the panoramic shooting and the use of contact microphones, the composition combines a representative double dimension that creates a bridge between the composer and the listener so as to become the cornerstone of the two worlds.
