Marco Barotti is a media artist based in Berlin. After music studies at the Siena Jazz Academy, he began merging sound with visual art, focusing on interventions in urban and natural surroundings. His installations are moving sculptures where he uses sound waves as the engine for the movement and inner nature of the works. He molds bare sonar architecture of commodity products into post-technological imaginaries. Barotti’s art practice is a poetic and visual sonification of our daily habitat, allowing the audience to not only see, but also feel sound.
The Woodpeckers transform in real time the invisible radiations used for mobile communication and wireless technology into audible and visible acoustic drumming patterns. The sonic result is a generative acoustic composition which undergoes constant transformation. A live soundscape which resonates as invading drum ensemble into urban and natural environments.
