PLAY900 is an exclusive and individual sound experience created for the Museo Novecento.
The editors of musicaelettronica.it, a blog on music research devised by Tempo Reale, have created three playlists which visitors can enjoy while moving freely around the museum, using a system of WI-FI earphones. The installation provides an opportunity for free interaction between music and works of art, setting in motion an unprecedented re-interpretation of the museum collection and its open spaces.
The first selection includes musical works which are already present in media centres, post-synched by Tempo Reale: works by composers who were active in Florence in the ‘sixties, ‘seventies, ‘eighties and ‘nineties. The second consists of pieces of music which won the call for thematic works promoted by the blog over the last year and includes mainly unpublished works. The third playlist is dedicated to the seminal works of Italian composers of electronic music, starting from the ground-breaking work of Pietro Grossi; the event is part of the celebrations of the centenary of his birth which takes place this year.
