The EyeThe Eye was commissioned as part of a series of Podcast on different parts of the human body for the Welcome Trust and Fuel Theatre. For this peiece Silvia worked with Dominic Ffytche, Clinical Senior Lecturer at the Institute of Psychiatry at King’s College London. They recorded the brain oscillations generated by a series of coreographed eyes movements. Following the pattern of these waves Tommaso wrote a score to accompany the this eye coreography translating into sounds the brain activity connected to the specific movements that the listeners are instructed to perform during the piece.
