Disassembling a Keynote

Süden Radio 2013


Disassembling a Keynote (2013) is a single field recording based composition. The field recording was not edited and recalls one of the most typical keynote sound associated with Southern Europe: insects.

The composer worked on the recording frequencies literally disassembling them, so to evoke in a subtle manner natural elements such as wind, sea, fire and other insects.


Giulio Aldinucci was born in Siena (Italy) in 1981. He is active in the field of electroacoustic music for year now, working in various research fields: from the soundscape to the musical composition for traditional instruments. From 2006 to 2011, under his project name Obsil (OBserving SILence), he has published three album on cd. A composition from his album Vicino, released by the Irish label Psychonavigation, was chosen by The Wire for the The Wire Tapper 25 cd, enclosed to the April 2011 issue.

The Obsil project ended in 2011; after that he release an ep for Laverna and in August 2012 the Japanese label Nomadic Kids Republic released on cd Tarsia, his first album published with his real name. He also wrote music for theatrical performances, video art, short movies (also winning some awards) and he has also contributed to some installation, like Sounding Doors (part of the Talking Doors project by Julijonas Urbonas. This work won the Award of Distinction in Interactive Art at Prix Ars Electronica 2010).
