Giuseppe Cordaro - Riccardo Caspani-Salse di Regnano


Salse di Regnano

Riccardo Caspani, Giuseppe Cordaro

Latitude: +44.55876°
Longitude: +10.57511°

This year, Liminaria will record and stream the sound of dawn from Salse di Regnano, an area characterized sometimes by intense eruptive activity, with abundant ascents of mud that incorporates rock masses.
This phenomenon not related to igneous volcanism, typical of proper volcanoes, but owes its origin to gaseous and liquid hydrocarbons, such as methane and oil, which escaping from the depths intercept some aquifers, conveying considerable quantities of mud to the surface; the latter, once in the open air, quickly consolidates, giving rise to the clayey cones that distinguish the "salsa".
Liminaria is a fieldwork-based research project aimed at developing sustainable cultural, social and economic networks in different rural areas in Italy.

The project unfolds through the planning and execution of “actions” on the territory, all carried out in joint collaboration with local communities. In this way, it seeks to test out new models of intervention in rural areas, thus reconfiguring rural territories as dynamic places while revaluing local resources.

The “actions” carried out within the framework of the project range from cultural events and performances (including a sound-art residency programme for international artists) to mid-term coworking projects with local schools, from network optimisation and new-media related initiatives, to hybrid and experimental research protocols.

This year, we will record and stream the sound of dawn from Salse di Regnano, an area well known for its characteristic appearance similar to that of volcanoes. The phenomenon there is not related to igneous volcanism, typical of proper volcanoes, but owes its origin to gaseous and liquid hydrocarbons, such as methane and oil, which escaping from the depths intercept some aquifers, conveying considerable quantities of mud to the surface; the latter, once in the open air, quickly consolidates, giving rise to the clayey cones that distinguish it. The name of "Salsa" derives from the fact that the mud is salty due to the presence of sodium chloride (table salt).  The Salsa di Regnano is sometimes characterized by intense eruptive activity, with abundant ascents of mud that incorporates rock masses.

Riccardo Caspani is a sonic artist and audio producer who lives and works in Reggio Emilia. He plays an active role in the city's cultural environment as a coordinator of cultural events and productions, especially in projects where sound is the main medium. By blending field recordings, modular synthesizers and softwares, he creates contents for dance, theater, video, sound design for cars and record productions. He performs live both with the creation of sets for sound, and with live sets halfway between Djing and the use of analogue machines.

Giuseppe Cordaro is an ecologist and sound artist, he has created a series of audiovisual projects for events, multimedia installations and mapping. Always attentive to sound research and the study of new technologies, he is working in the soundscape and phonosphere with great attention to sound ecology. He has collaborated with several artists including Robert Lippok, Simon Scott, Ben Frost, Giorgio Sancristoforo Corrado Nuccini, Giuseppe La Spada, Quayola and Apparati Effimeri. He recently released his latest work for Simon Scott's (Slowdive) British label Kesh (UK).
