A SOUNDTRACK FOR DAYDREAMS

PLACES, SETTINGS, SITUATIONS.
A MONOGRAPHY ABOUT TRENT REZNOR

A Soundtrack for Daydreams is a project about Trent Reznor focused on his experience with Nine Inch Nails, especially about the album Ghost. As Reznor says, the album was composed starting from “a sort of visual reference that we had imagined: a place, a setting, or a situation”. The album is an attempt to describe that with sound, texture and melody. To treat it, in a sense, as if it were a soundtrack. A Soundtrack for Daydreams describes Trent Reznor’s work using a similar approach starting from a visual source, such as the tour pictures that cross the NIN’s history using Ghost’s sounds through the software Audacity to glitch, transform and manipulate the image to get a new visual output through sound.The glitch is always different, so the output is something unexpected that emulates the experimental and random way in which Ghost was recorded. Ghost is considered the highest pitch of experimentation in Reznor’s career.






A SOUNDTRACK FOR DAYDREAMS
AUDIOVISUAL INSTALLATION 

ISIA Urbino
28—30 June 2018 @ISIA Parade 

The concept of the book was translated on a last output through an installation exposed during the ISIA Urbino Parade, using Resolume Arena we projected a slideshow of the images we used inside the book and glitched it on real time through the Ghost’s sounds previously sampled on a Roland SP404SX, using melodys, noise and drums creating compositions and loops to glitch images interactively.
