The Conversation

The Conversation is a limited artist’s edition, published in conjunction with the project The Conversation by Francesca Grilli, developed by the artist for the Nuove Arti Awardat MAMbo, Bologna. It consists of a one-sided vinyl, including a track written by the artist herself for the performance interpreted by a deaf man who reprocesses the music detected only through vibrations – sensing the auditory vibrations coming from the wooden structure on which he stands – with a soundless song in the Italian sign language. Hence The Conversation relaborates and extends the concept of artistic and musical performance by creating a new chemistry among music, noise and deaf culture.
