Alberto Rizzo

at University of Sussex

Alberto Rizzo (1994) is an Italian sonic researcher and artist constantly involved in the physicality of sound and the understanding of the cross-modal interaction between visual listening and bodily gestures into the ether. His experimental practice accumulated in his collaboration with the composer Ronald Kuivila led him to experiment in the last few years with chaotic sonic spaces in which air flows matter and inaudible streams are shaped and painted into reality. His latest research investigates the use of AI in his Feedback shadow instrument, interrogating the controversial human vs machine dilemma and critically investigating several ways of using machine learning to create new areas of sonic serendipity keeping a certain amount of unpredictability. He recently explored the world of colour-sound synaesthesia in his Sonic Re-action painting sound art project.
