“Banat Banat Ban Jai” is a diary of a journey through sound and listening, as a form of meditation. Listening carefully to every kind of sound in different places and with several methods gave Andrea Laudante a new perception of the world around and inside him. In this work, these two worlds melt into each other and become one.
The only subject is sound and its origin, in all its forms. The focus of the research is looking for common ground between concrete and instrumental music.
“There is no difference between the sound that comes from a guitar and the sound that comes from the wind blowing through the leaves if we know how to listen.” says Laudante.
