Rivers (2018) | Yuval Avital

RIVA Project 2021

In the Rivers (2018) cycle, two rivers intertwine in a sound continuum: on the one hand, the sounds from the river environment, recorded and electronically processed by Israeli composer Yuval Avital with the Arno soundscape, giving rise to an original composition reproduced here; on the other hand, a human river created by voices overlapping with animal noises, breaths, and fragments of tales whispered in di erent languages by the Con-Fusion Choir, invited to Montelupo by Yuval Avital in collaboration with Tempo Reale on commission by the RIVA Project 2018. The choir’s performance, directed by Benedetta Manfriani, intertwined in an intense and vibrant way with the electronic composition, thus creating a new flow. The final result was the union of ancillary elements (local/universal, human/animal, acoustic/digital, memory/present) in the pursuit of an empathic point of convergence between work and audience.

Rivers represents both a metaphor and a concrete sound action, in which Voice, Gesture, and recorded Material intertwine in a space and sensorial experience, prompting the audience to take an active part, searching for an intimate and human encounter with the river.

In collaboration with Tempo Reale.

Yuval Avital

Musician and visual artist

Born in Jerusalem in 1977 and living in Milan, multimedia artist, composer and guitarist Yuval Avital develops his works in a variety of spaces, including public venues, industrial archaeological sites, theatres and museums, challenging the traditional crystallized categories that separate the arts. In his exhibitions, performances, immersive installations, total-operas, large-scale musical ‘rituals’, and concerts one can find dancers, contemporary music ensembles, masters of ancient cultures, recruited individuals or communities, multi-video projections, meditative tactile ambients, advanced technological instruments, archive materials, scientific data, Sound-Sculpture, painting and printed artworks.
Each of Avital’s artworks is a unique experiential, poetic and emotional microcosm with its own identity, fruit of a meticulous research carried out in a carefully coded language, confronting the reoccurring themes of archetype and structure; ancestral and currant global-era human c

Each of Avital’s artworks is a unique experiential, poetic and emotional microcosm with its own identity, fruit of a meticulous research carried out in a carefully coded language, confronting the reoccurring themes of archetype and structure; ancestral and currant global-era human condition; nature and hybridity; ritual and science.
Avital’s sound and visual artworks have been presented in museums, art foundations, venues and art events such as MANIFESTA Biennial, GAM – Torino, MACRO Museum of Contemporary Art Rome; OSTRALE Dresden Biennial, La Fabbrica del Cioccolato Foundation in Switzerland, Saint Antoine Church Istanbul, Marino Marini Museum in Florence; National Science and Technology Museum “Leonardo da Vinci” in Milan.

RIVA Project 2018

Promoted by the MUS.E Association under the artistic direction of Valentina Gensini

In 2018, the RIVA Project resumed its collaboration with Pelago and Montelupo Fiorentino, involving both the historic centre and the outskirts of Florence. Its action paid special attention to environmental issues, as well as the economic, political, and social context. One of the principal events was Paolo Masi’s solo show QUI with a display of twelve new site-specific artworks produced during his six-month residency at MAD Murate Art District. Montelupo Fiorentino was the centre of activity for Yuval Avital and the ConFusion migrant choir directed by Benedetta Manfriani, for Tempo Reale and its Sentieri del silenzio (Paths of Silence) project carried out at the former psychiatric hospital, and for Radio Papesse with Storie dell’Arno a Montelupo (Histories of the Arno in Montelupo). The other town crossed by the Arno, Pelago, hosted photographer Davide Virdis (who presented an exhibit in a public space and held a workshop in collaboration with Fondazione Studio Marangoni) and Stud

The Murate Art District was the venue for lectures and Italian and English classes held by LWCircus and the Department of Architecture from the University of Florence. The 2018 edition of the RIVA Project opened to the Far East thanks to a partnership with Zhong Art International, and offered a residency at MAD to three Chinese artists, who were invited to provide their specific vision of the Arno River.
