Since 2016, the work on "real-time" has evolved in various forms, culminating in a collaboration with the LIM (Department of Musical Informatics of the University of Milan) in 2023, which implements an interactive software called "Real Time," aimed at fostering an immersive dialogue between the audience and the sound landscape.

The first presentation takes place at the Linea gallery spaces in Lecce, Italy.

Arcanum03–11–2021Permanent digital exhibition for Exibart Digital Gallery.

“Arcanum is an audiovisual code resulting from the symbols used for divinatory readings of the "arcana. Created on orchestral scores, the code magnifies the rich details of historical tarot cards, simplifying and amplifying them, presenting twenty-two images "constructed" on a staff line and an equal number of three-note chords that can be listened to online in succession. Continuing the work on alphabets and numbers, I investigated the arcane code of tarot cards, transforming visual details into augmented supporting structures, scaled up to fill the entire space of the staff and sometimes becoming Escher-like figures. For the composition, I drew inspiration not only from the divinatory art of tarot cards but also from Aleksandr Nikolaevich Skryabin with his mystical chord: a succession of notes conceived by the Russian composer and pianist as both a harmonic foundation and a key to interpreting the "Divine" in the symphonic poem Prometheus. By sampling the wind, the quintessential invisible element, I synthesized a digital instrument resembling an organ with which I performed the sound track.” (Alessio de Girolamo)

Arcanum is curated by Daniele Perra

"Atlantis" is the emergence of a new sonic landscape that interacts with architecture and its inhabitants. It is an Atlantis revealed by the retreat of the sea of "decibels" that once submerged it.

Inside, we are surprised by echoes, reverberations, and distortions of strings, winds, and choirs. Distant echoes bounce off the walls, swell into the void of large desolate rooms, or echo in endless fields where there is no man to absorb their power nor colorful frequencies to hinder them.

In this landscape, rules, relationships, and meanings are shifted as if they wanted to reveal the fragility of an illusion that, cracked, returns the profile of the void to which it gives shape.

Alessio De Girolamo (main room) presents a section of his work on language with the artist books MAMIOMEGA, THE PSYCHOTRONIK BOOK OF THE SEA, WONDER WATERS, and YOU THINK TO TURN AROUND. Letters and codes monumentalize into individual totemic entities through the succession of words, syllables, and ambiguous phrases capable of existing in an autonomous form that exceeds the logical structure of language to deliver the author to a different, archaic, and distinctly sensory dimension. The pictorial medium used is obtained from a recipe with natural ingredients against electromagnetic field contamination, becoming a sign that dusts and stains proportionally to page consultation, visibly marking the human body with the same pigment created to nullify the action of intangible entities. The large letter "GIANT T" stands out on the background of the space, becoming the backdrop of the video documentation of the performance "WONDER WATERS." The inscription composed of the 12 letters arranged clockwise combines with the hydrogen of the water swept with brooms by the inhabitants of Valletta, causing the dissolution of the pigment and the consequent annihilation of the word. The act of cleaning materializes in the purification of silence (Triton Square, Valletta, Malta, 2019).
