Strijbos & Van Rijswijk have devised a new S.I.G.N.A.L. instrument, designed specifically for the place where it is set. Thanks to 24 long-throw speakers, similar to those broadcasting announcements in stadiums, and the support of live sopranos, Cividale del Friuli will vibrate with surprising sounds and compositions. The project aims to create a constant dialogue between visitors, music and landscape. During Mittelfest 2021 the territory will act as a backdrop for performances that encourage people to walk, think and (re)discover the landscape.

World premiere

The show consists of a walk through the historic centre. Departure from Via Mulinuss.
