My work encompasses recorded compositions, performances, site-specific installations, text scores, online projects and participative actions, all having sound and listening at their core.

I investigate the notions of presence, silence, and impermanence, encouraging various levels of experience, engagement, and contemplation. I am particularly interested in how time and slow natural processes affect the fruition of artwork, influence human perception, memory and relationship with the natural and the virtual. My work often takes on an elusive character, being concerned with the dual nature of sound: my research pivots on the ambiguity between the material and immaterial, letting paradoxes coexist within the same vocabulary.

Inviting people to heighten their relationship with unpredictability, I seek to create an expanded experience in which participants question their control over reality. Drawing inspiration from microbiology, quantum physics and Zen practices, I am interested in unfolding the complexities, multiplicities and transitory nature of aural realities permeating our lives, with a cross-language that talks to a shared subjectivity and employs unconventional forms of participation. My practice reveals an inner discipline that goes beyond the scope of rational coordinates, whilst addressing everyday actions and small things.

Fabio Perletta il suono lo produce, lo comprime, lo interroga costringendo lo spettatore a porsi in ascolto, a spostarsi nello spazio, cercando di catturare frequenze inudibili incastrate in centinaia di combinazioni che si autogenerano.

Addensandosi e disaggregandosi intorno al grado zero della materia sonora, questi suoni disegnano traiettorie dissonanti e frantumate nello spazio dell’ascolto, che diventa lo scenario acustico di un’esperienza intensa e immersiva.
Leandro Pisano, Blow Up Magazine

~ファビオ・ペルレッタ本人によるステイトメント~

 私の作品には、録音~構成された作品や、パフォーマンス、サイトスペシフィックなインスタレーション、テキストスコア、オンラインプロジェクト、参加型アクションが含まれており、すべてサウンドとリスニングが核となっています。

私は、存在、沈黙、無常の概念を探究し、さまざまなレベルの経験、関与、熟考を奨励しています。私は特に、時間とゆっくりとした自然のプロセスが芸術作品の結実にどのように影響し、人間の知覚、記憶、自然と仮想との関係にどのように影響するかに興味があります。

私の作品は、しばしばとらえどころのない性格を帯び、音の二重性に関心を持っています。私の研究は、物質と非物質の間のあいまいさに重点を置いており、同じ語彙内にパラドックスが共存できるようにしています。

人々に予測不可能性との関係を深めるよう促し、参加者が現実に対する自分のコントロールに疑問を抱く、拡張された体験を作成しようとしています。微生物学、量子物理学、禅の実践からインスピレーションを得て、共有された主観性と対話し、型破りな参加形態を採用する言語を超えて、私たちの生活に浸透している聴覚的現実の複雑さ、多様性、および一時的な性質を明らかにすることに興味があります。

私の実践とは、日常的な行動や些細なことに取り組みながら、合理的な座標の範囲を超える内面の規律を明らかにすることです。
