Marco Scarassatti – Crônicas Sonoras de Cabo Verde CS+Zine (AG 002.1)
Beyond almost irresistible forces to fetishize and normalize objects of study and research environments, Marco Scarassatti’s Crônicas Sonoras de Cabo Verde is a strong statement on participatory translation and dialogical communication. Educator, instrument builder and sound artist Marco Scarassatti dodges the tendency to isolate in an intellectual vacuum the individuals and their dynamics, managing to point his own sensibilities outwards. By doing so, he has crafted an organic sonic work, not turning fragments of perceived alterity into a shiny and calm surface on which judgements and expectations are vainly reflected and peacefully confirmed, but rather becoming himself, along with his artistic choices, the analyzed subject.
