Artistic and scientific research project aimed at raising awareness of the heritage of alpine glaciers
"Un Suono in Estinzione" is an experimental research project aimed at monitoring the implications of climate change on alpine glaciers through a sonic exploration of natural environments at risk, declined in educational, artistic and scientific activities. The project was born in 2020 from an idea of the researcher and sound artist Sergio Maggioni a.k.a. NEUNAU, and developed together with a team of professionals from different fields.
The initiative aims to document and monitor the acoustic phenomena occurring on alpine glaciers with higher frequency due to climate change, and which represent a signal of the rapid changes underway in those areas. The project consists of a series of scientific expeditions on glaciers, with the aim to collect useful data to develop new models for preventing and safeguarding the ecosystem in danger.
