Marco Fusinato: DESASTRES

DESASTRES is an experimental noise project that synchronises sound with image and takes the form of a durational solo performance as installation. Marco Fusinato is performing live in the Australia Pavilion for the duration of the 59th International Art Exhibition La Biennale di Venezia. He uses an electric guitar as a signal generator into mass amplification to improvise slabs of noise, saturated feedback and discordant intensities that trigger a deluge of images onto a freestanding floor-to-ceiling LED wall. The images are sourced via a stream of words that have been put into an open search across multiple online platforms. There is no theme as such, rather the immersion of sound and image is open for the audience to interpret and make sense of. The intent is to create some kind of hallucination, elation in disorientation and exhaustion from confusion. The work is an invitation for audiences to come together within a high-intensity concentration of energy. What can’t be seen, can be felt: sound as physical matter which creates a transformative experience.
