As part of Russia–Italy year 2011
Project «Artsound» examines phenomena of sound visualization in figurative system of multimedia technologies. This art trend, which has long-standing tradition, is manifested by artists, who create absolutely new language and new alternative iconology. Its figurativness integrates all radical traditions of historic avat-garde – noise futuristic orchestras, acustic fortuity of dada, combinatorial analysis of fluxus's sound – in itself. Ties with Italian culture of futurism, which influenced the development of this Russian movement too, are actively traced in historic part of the project «Generation Z», which demonstrates experiments with sound of 1930s, when visual shape was transferred in sound systems with help of special machines. Artists, who have the highest rating in contemporary Russian visual art and go far from its scope in their creative position, take part in the project «Artsound». Integral-installational forms are used in their practice, where sound creates new artistic integrity, organically meeting with image (video projection, photography, computer animation), opening visual space of its own acoustic presence.
