LitoScape is a generative electroacoustic sound experience that invites the viewer to enter the vertical and suspended space-time of craftsmanship. The various stages of the Bulla workshop's printing work generate an intricate soundscape thanks to a modular synthesis system that, starting from the materiality of the stone, creates textures, stamps and atmospheres that evolve organically over time. The composition urges you to slow down, listen actively and marvel at the creative process. The work is enriched by the use of low-frequency sound waves specifically designed to stimulate neurotransmitters such as serotonin, DHEA, endorphins and GABA that produce a state of deep relaxation and well-being.
