A duel between the noise of the airplane and the techno track, created in real-time from its own sound, gives life to a unique performance that paves the way for Alessio de Girolamo's research on the role of time in sound and music. Noise and music try to overpower each other, increasing the volume to trigger a reflection on the so-called "loudness war," an invisible battle fought between record companies to capture the customer's attention by compressing the sound, but neglecting the dynamic range.

Performed and conceived by Alessio de Girolamo on the occasion of Noise in Filandia 2016, Arezzo, Italy.
