Secondo John Cage
USMARADIO & The School of Radio
USMARADIO is a workplace of The School of Radio to develop an innovative radio pedagogy. Workshops, work sessions, meetings, presentations of live performance as sections of the project.
During the White Night (Notte bianca) of the University of the Republic of San Marino, Alessandro Caccuri and Giulio Urbini – students of Unirsm Design – organized and directed the workshop event “Secondo John Cage (According to John Cage)”. This project is produced by USMARADIO and The School of Radio: based on the theory, field recording, live electronics and conduction. On the day of event, a group of participants (Unirsm students) recorded and post-produced sounds collected by exploring San Marino. The sounds became materials for this performance broadcasted live on USMARADIO’s stream, and the students have been faced – for the most of them was the first time in life – with microphones, sound machines, modular synths, controllers and radios. Even just taking a look to the images the fun and large involvement are showed: the project was such a special and exciting experience for everyone. Based on the success of event, many other workshop around sound and experimentation in the future are already planned.
The participants: Lorenzo De Fazio, Valentina Toccaceli, Federico Giulioni, Sirya Cardone, Miriana Cerenzia, Alessia Principi, Daniele Trebbi, Damiano Gennari, Roberto Alesi, Marco Maria Lucidi, Gianluca Torcolacci, Grazia Pestillo, Nicola Colomboni, Elena Porreca.
