Tempo Reale

Progetto Primavera 2012

A spring full of acknowledgements for the second edition of Tempo Reale’s spring project. Acknowledgement of the partnerships with several local institutions to create a grand monographic evening dedicated to John Cage. Acknowledgement of the horizons expanded through an intensification of interactions with the city of Bologna. Acknowledgement of the vitality of recent output with a new artistic-architectural interpretation at the Giardino Corsini and the Limonaia in Villa Strozzi. And, finally, acknowledgement of an educational and research-based initiative, with an investigation into the relationship between sound and the environment carried out for over a year and intersected with a rediscovered educational activity for kids. This initiative takes an innovative and sensorial approach to connect the sounds of nature with those of the ludic and everyday worlds. This in turn leads to the creation of sound walks, a workshop on the sounds of birds, and the active participation of kids from the Maggio Scuole in a performance of Musica di tutti i giorni (Everyday music). A series of rendezvous produced in partnership with preeminent Tuscan and Emilian institutions, including the grand tribute to John Cage and the celebrations for the 25th anniversary of Tempo Reale with the music of Berio and Kagel. Alongside all this is the now-customary interest in the relationship between music and the environment with performances, sound walks and much more.
