Barbara de Dominicis
Her growing interest in soundscapes leads her to conceive of A tale of two cities: a series of audio collages designed to portray the similarities and differences of two cities which lie on the same parallel, Naples and New York. This work has become a radiowork produced for RadioPapesse vs Radia network, entitled Crossings. Among her current projects Exqusite What [as both curator and creator] a collective inspired by the Surrealist practice of exquisite corpses dedicated to the creation of an audio-visual web platform; La Reverie/La Sogneria [curator/creator]_a multimedia space linked to dreaming in which, as if inside a globe indexed by locations, issues, and time periods, one can choose to “enter” [in mp3] into the story of a dream or to travel between multiple dreams (in progress). She has recently been invited by GIRRL [girrlsound :digitalgirrl [an Australian organization supporting women working in the field of sonic and digital art] to curate and produce a series of radio podcasts entitled ”The Cat Cinderella” with the aim of promoting the dissemination of works by women artists on the brink between net_art, sound art and audio documentary.
