Milan lockdown sound recorded by Sergio Armaroli.

"Sunday morning, April 19, 2020, Milan: at the center of the pandemic. I recorded and edited in a sound meta-landscape from two listening points, 10 am, approximately. Listening to my cats. The passage of tram 1, symbol of the city, and some occasional cars. I leave the imprint of the voice with the wind gently hitting the microphone.

"Reversing the time: internal / external. I pick up the sound of the city from my terrace on the street and inside the Eco of the courtyard. In the distance voices and the ignition of the gas as a signal.Dialectically from two points towards a change of perspective. Towards a listening society. To Luc Ferrari, in memory."
