The project was born out of the desire to analyse the Tenuta dello Scompiglio as a systemic process in which interaction, composition and interdisciplinary character highlight the theoretically central role of the audience through the study of the relationships between space, sound and the individual.
In the General Systems Theory of Ludwig von Bertalanffy, the Austrian biologist maintains that in the most diverse economic, epidemiological, environmental or social phenomena, it is necessary to take an approach that analyses not only the individual elements, but the entire reality generated by the interaction of all the components of the system. This has been adopted by the artist to create a sort of weaving of sounds into the reality of Scompiglio. The inclusion of numerical data, derived from the cultural and educational activities, the production of wine, oil and honey, wood chips, the biodynamic vegetable garden or the production of the restaurant, in software developed
ad hoc and constituting a series of genetic processes, forms the basis of an electro-acoustic composition that dilates throughout the exhibition space.
The large sound installation in which 80 plexi-glass tubes of different diameters and lengths act as sound boards for the compostion, suggests connections between the various sections of the Tenuta in an organic, articulate and participatory manner. Modulating the pathway, prompting which way to look, and encouraging continuous movement, inviting each visitor to immerse themselves in the environment, to become a participant and director of the organic construction of the place, emphasising that it is not possible for the individual to be merely a passive receiver of stimuli from an external world, but in a very real sense they are themselves the creator of their own universe.

In the “General Systems Theory” of Ludwig von Bertalanffy, the Austrian biologist maintains that in the most diverse economic, epidemiological, environmental or social phenomena, it is necessary to take an approach that analyses not only the individual elements, but the entire reality generated by the interaction of all the components of the system. This has been adopted by the artist to create a sort of “weaving of sounds” into the reality of Scompiglio. The inclusion of numerical data, derived from the cultural and educational activities, the production of wine, oil and honey, wood chips, the biodynamic vegetable garden or the production of the restaurant, in software developed ad hoc and constituting a series of genetic processes, forms the basis of an electro-acoustic composition that dilates throughout the exhibition space.
