About Camilla Dell'Agnola e Valentina Turrini.
The repertory of Camilla Dell'Agnola and Valentina Turrini, performers of the theatre company O Thiasos TeatroNatura, passes through the universe of different traditional rooted cultures of the world. The research of the duo concentrates on relationships between specific timbre, harmony and melody and different soundscapes, singing in natural places. After several years of theatre shows, concerts and performances created for specific natural sites, the artists decided to record in the wild nature of the ''Gran Paradiso National Park'', on the Mountains of northwest of Italy. The artists experimented, during a long research work on the field, a variedness of soundscapes, so, for this wealth as well as for the absence of noise pollution, they decided to record the cd in two areas of the park.
About O Thiasos:
The project O Thiasos TeatroNatura directed by Sista Bramini was started in 1992 in order to investigate, through the tools of theater, the relationship between dramatic art, ecological awareness and natural environment. This encounter leads to a rethinking of the actor’s art related to its presence on the stage and the conception of dramaturgy, directing, scenography and musical composition. In this theatrical research, the use of the voice, through storytelling and singing has a central role. Camilla Dell'Agnola, trainer, musician, actress and singer and Valentina Turrini, actress and singer conduct a specific research on the relation between traditional songs and natural acoustics.
