Being isolated means to find oneself in a sort of spatial and emotional limbo where the risk of feeling lonely and disconnected grows exponentially. Forced in this condition, we felt the urgency to explore different kinds of physicality and to recreate a sense of community.

That is why in April 2020 - in the middle of a global lockdown - Sagome and The Room... asked eleven international sound artists and musicians from six different countries to compose two personal soundscapes that reflect their perception of the Indoor and Outdoors: WINDOW A and WINDOW B.

By triggering this imaginary journey and discovery of new spaces through sound, the project aims to recreate a sense of community by offering the opportunity to connect through sound with people geographically distant but emotionally close.

For WINDOW A / WINDOW B we also asked British artist Daniel Tollady to give a physical and visual representation of each soundscape. That is why he decided "To produce a series of speculative architectural objects that explored a set of interior and exterior spaces and forms; theoretical scales and impossible conditions that allude to one thing but could be any other. An assemblage of making, drawing and printing that communicates a set of components recomposing themselves into different situations".

WINDOW A / WINDOW B is a fundraiser compilation. All the proceeds from the sales will be donated to Sportello TiAscolto!, a charity based in Milan, Bolzano and Turin committed to offer sustainable and affordable mental health support, even remotely and in different languages.
