Residuo del deserto (Desert Residue)


A desert is a harbor, it is a deep land that unveils water. Among its ever-shifting dunes, one finds the continuous growth of the sea’s waves. Desert residue is everything that lasts through its dryness, everything that understands it as porosity, moving through its interstices. It is both the journey and the destination: to the lands which are seas and to the seas that can hold the land, to the light that shelters the darkness, to the ancestors that become residues, traces that leave marks on the sand, lighting up the black sea for those who are travelling.

Director Biography - Francesca Fabrizi

Francesca Fabrizi is a videoartist and composer who mainly works along the continuous border of image and sound. Her sonorous and visual worlds constantly try to find a balance between memory and imagination, the first one throughout the wide use of portable recorders as phenomenological witnesses; the last one by the means of audio-visual digital processing which, corresponding to an effort to remember, reshape sound and image in new forms and paths.
Her academic education resides first on a bachelor in Psychology, after which she has undertaken her musical instruction on electronic music and sound design.
She then tries to merge her twofold education directing a particular interest to the themes of perception, how can this be enlarged in her musical and audiovisual practice, giving a considerable importance to the extended notion of Soundscape.
