Hic Salta is an ever-changing-form project led by musician Davide Lorenzon.
Chinese Whispers is the first in a series of experimental recordings based on a conceptual game.
Each musician involved has to record a track by him/herself. Each one of these tracks takes two different “recording paths”. One goes from A (the source) to B (who add another layer) and then to C (who adds the final layer) and in the other case from A (the source) this time first to C (new layer) and then to B (final layer).
We obtain two different tracks with two different orders of stratification from the same source. This game is repeated starting from each “source track”.
The aim of the experiment is to understand at which degree these different recording paths change the meaning of their origin.
