SOUND MURALISM

can music became public art?

can we use sounds to build psychological architectures able to dialogue, shape and give alternative interpretations of our natural/urban/social landscapes?

welcome to my research about sound muralism.

As a drummer, I’ve toured throughout Italy and Germany with various projects.

Max Magaldi (1982) played as a drummer all over Europe with several musical projects. Since 2018, he is experimenting digital performative actions that intertwine music, contemporary art and social network hacking and developing the concept of sound murals: a site-specific soundscape for public spaces that anyone can listen to through their devices. He then created the project “theDrama” with which he realized, working on the theme of migrants, a sound mural for European oil ports and one for the cemetery of life jackets on the island of Lesbos. In 2019, he created musical performances for “Simbiosi”, Edoardo Tresoldi’s installation at Arte Sella, and “Merci”, the exhibition of the Spanish artist Gonzalo Borondo in Bordeaux. He collaborated with STUDIO STUDIO STUDIO for the realization of the experiential installation in Riyadh “Gharfa”, by designing a sound de-composition that allows the visitor to create his personal audio “mix”.
