In this new program Antonio Mainenti will prove how the Auto-Tune plugin connects directly to the baroque compositions of the 16th Century. If you don’t know what Auto-Tune does to a voice I suggest you inhale some Helium and start singing.
The second part is a perfect juxtaposition to the poppified baroque songs. A group of students sets out on an afternoon to produce a radio program. A narration is found, the sounds that go with it, and a daydream in sound takes form.
in Antonio’s words:
“The 16th century and Auto-tune: the most Baroque plugin + Artificial Paradise
1- (33′) Auto-tune: the most Baroque plugin.
My time machine brought me in the 16th century, I brought with me a box of plugins.
2- (12′) Artificial Paradise by a group of Psychology Students of Pavia University and CEM.
A student , the daily routine that begins , his favourite song and a daydream.
A group of Psychology studies (University of Pavia) invites you to reevaluate your hearing: close your eyes!
