The work presents eight actions Davide has performed with microphones. These actions reflect on the materiality of the sound devices and explore their corporeal aspects, as sounding bodies that he interacts with in unconventional ways. The actions are developed with a direct dramaturgy, eachending with the death of the microphone and consequent absence of sound. Davide’s actions explore the ephemeral nature of corporeal existence through the presence and disappearance of sound as a metaphor for life and death.
