Musical rendering (industrial noise) of a day in a factory. The work symbolises the whole working day (in Italy 8 working hours and 1 lunch break hour) and it is made up of 9 parts, which are published every year, starting from 2004, on a fixed day: May 1st.
Factory engines and surroundings have been sampled during working time and have been subsequently altered. The samples have been used across the entire work: sounds of analogue synthesizers, microphones, effect units and voices have been added too.
The music project intends to describe the fabric atmosphere also from the workers point of view; feelings, status and frame of mind like oppression, effort, iterativity, boredom, dark mood and rescue are translated in music through heavy, industrial and mechanical sounds.
