Tip! Voce a vento represents the result of a choral, visual and performative intervention realized by Claudia Losi in the Cilento countryside in Southern Italy in 2018. Commissioned by Jazzi association, Losi chose a collective direction in which choral and polyphonic singing played a central role and developed with a collective and inclusive direction. For a few days, some thirty women from both the Emilia and Cilento regions have used their voices to dwell on the tracks of Monte Bulgheria in the National park of Cilento and Vallo di Diano, under the guidance of Meike Clarelli (singer, musician and researcher) and with the participation of Elena Bojkova, soloist of the Bulgarian Female Vocal Choir ‘Le Mystère des Voix Bulgares’. The publication contains texts by Claudia Losi; written following the collective experience of the "laboratori camminati" which involved different guests and local hiking groups on each instance to collect a variety of ‘views.’ The writing contains a variety of possible readings.
The words put together by the artist as such become a storyline, based on the collected material and the shared walking experiences they are woven together from the vegetal, animal, human, as well as the geological and atmospheric realms. Furthermore, the words are inspired by works songs, women’s songs in particular, in which the words form a ‘mapping’ of the landscape through “the voices of the human beings who are part of it.”
Voce a vento (a book+ vinyl record) curated by Katia Anguelova, is the first volume of a new editorial series consisting of three consecutive volumes of an artist’s book and a vinyl record, conceived together with the artist Claudia Losi.
