It’s the awareness of freedom; to escape of routine and go away.
From urban soundscapes to natural soundscapes guided by a primal voice.
-Field recording: urban soundscapes, natural soundscapes.

Dalla culla alla vasca (Cradle to bathtub) – 2016/2017
A white empty hall, like an empty white bathroom, just a bathtub in the centre and four speakers create a quadraphonic sound. A big carousel for crib hangs and rolls over the tub. A carousel full of jellyfish, sinuous and transparent; jellyfish like Medusa of Greek mythology, meaning the female rage and the feminine wile.
The visitor has to get in the bathtub, filled with white felt like foam, and has a sound trip. Feeling the connection between the cradle and the bathtub, it’s like a deep dive in the past. The memory of childhood and “not memory” of the birth. The transition from amniotic fluid to cleansing scented water.
LJUBA DE ANGELIS – sound art (field recording, musique concrete, experimental music)
MATRUPIX – plastic art
