The third edition of the international art salon PANORAMA EDITIONS will explore the rich silence of the desert region in the 12th century Jaisalmer Fort Museum.
This one-of-a-kind experience will feature a select group of sound art installations from renowned international artists installed in a room of the Fort Palace Museum dedicated to “listening”.
The Italian Cultural Centre is participating to the exhibition with an audio work by Italian artist Vittorio Montalti, which will feature in the month-long exhibit.
The audio track, titled “Cut-Up”, is an electronic piece inspired by the cut-up technique invented by the American writer W.S. Burroughs.
Vittorio Montalti obtained his Composition Masters degree at the Conservatory G. Verdi in Milan and at the Conservatory S. Cecilia in Rome. He later studied electronic music at the IRCAM-Centre in Paris. In 2010 he was awarded the prestigious “Silver Lion” award at the Venice Biennale during the 54th International Festival of Contemporary music. His works have been performed at various festivals such as New York Philharmonic, Carnegie Hall, Teatro dell’Opera di Roma and IRCAM-Centre Pompidou.
The event is sponsored by the Rajasthan State Government along with Fort Palace Museum Trust.
