Soundscapes and Sound Identities

Of This Parish will be screened as part of the Soundscapes and Sound Identities 7th FKL Symposium in May 2015

The 7th FKL Symposium Soundscapes and Sound Identities will be held at the Castello Di Besenello, Italy from 22 – 24 May 2015.  Liminal will be presenting a paper on Of This Parish and their film of the same name will be screened as part of the Portobeseno Festival.
 
Of This Parish follows St. Anthony on a journey from a church tower to the threshold at which its bells can be heard. The film is both a sonic portrait of the Parish of Sul and a meditation on the changing role of bells in a rural community


FKL (Forum Klanglandschaft - Forum for the soundscape) is a European association that wants to serve as a platform for contact between people from different disciplines that deal with the soundscape and acoustic spaces.
The FKL was born as a result of the impetus given by the World Forum for Acoustic Ecology WFAE (Vancouver, BC). The FKL is a non-profit organization and is open to all those interested in listening and sound environmental stewardship.
Every two years FKL organizes a conference in a different European city.

Portobeseno 
is a cultural project founded in 2004 which works on 2.0 multimedia archives, art projects and laboratories dealing with issues of the territory, the landscape and individual and collective memories.
The projects are based on narrative interviews, ethnographic research, didactical laboratories for schools, reflections on oral memory and on the factual knowledge of the territory, on the exploration of soundscapes and their relation to the web through the development of virtual maps, creative blogs, geoblogs, social projects for the web.
These projects are integrated in the festival “Portobeseno, a journey to historical and web sources “ which produces events (ranging from theatre to electro-acoustic concerts) and innovative multimedia installations. The Portobeseno festival furthermore hosts discussions on authors rights, creative sharing, the real / virtual perception of the territory, from the discovery of a trail in the woods to net surfing.
