- A computer
analysis on the
reverberating characteristics of Pisa
Baptistery, led to the discovery of a suggestive reference frame used
designing and building the Baptistery: everything here is based on the
golden number, the regular pentagon and, finally, a star.
- The Piazza
dei Miracoli (the Miracle Square) is one of most famous
place in the world and considered one of the most beautiful
architectural complex of the Romanic period of the History of
Art. It’s well known that the monuments of the Piazza (the
Leaning Tower, the Cathedral and the Baptistery) are the result of a
very rich and glorious period in the history of Pisa.
- What is
less known is that the whole Piazza was designed and built as a
giant solar clock and solar calendar for marking time during the day
and during the seasons of the year: in this sense the Piazza worked as
an effective and practical "tool" for marking and control the dayly
and yearly life of people of past times.
Baptistery is famous for its internal echo and reverberation:
during the visit of tourists, the guardians sing inside the
Baptistery for emphasizing this fantastic resonance.
“Siderisivox” has been proposed by the late Mons. Silvano
Burgalassi with the aim of investigating the internal acoustic
characteristics of the Baptistery and of using them for composing and
executing a special music.
- Here the monument is
a "place" where to execute music but, rather, an "instrument" for
music under the control of computer generated anechoic sounds: the
baptistery-instrument plays and tells about the Baptistery Monument.
- The concert
"Siderisvox" took place on the evenings of 23 and 24 june
