‘Tautologies’ explores playing the sound of glass through glass as a poetical return of a sonic event to the matter it was generated from.

Breaking the Mirror of Silence presents new works by Emanuele Cendron and twelve other contemporary artists working with sound. The exhibition seeks to amplify crucial debates about sound in contemporary art.

Emanuele Cendron’s installation ‘Tautologies’ explores playing the sound of glass through glass as a poetical return of a sonic event to the matter it was generated from. Sound waves, first translated into bytes, get back to their origin, producing a sonic and temporal reverberation that fights with the stillness of the objects and the rigidity of the human conceptuality. Glass, the apparent tautology this work is built on, crumbles in thousands of sonic shards that wreck the minimal, almost bare, visual aesthetic, and expand throughout the space.

Cendron’s piece uses panes of glass functioning as speakers for the sounds of glass transmitted through them using ‘Whispering Windows’ technology from Feonic.

This, and the 12 other works, each propose different ways in which sound in the arts can be a vehicle for exchange in gallery exhibitions. The artists come from a wide range of sound-based practices, linked by their involvement in the innovative MA Sound Arts programme at London College of Communication. On the Saturday Breaking the Mirror of Silence LIVE will include a morning symposium hosted by CRiSAP (Centre for Creative Research in Sound Arts Practice) followed by a series of live performances.

Emanuele Cendron’s artistic practice is the combining of a philosophical analysis and the interest for sound and symbols. He tries to infiltrate the flaws between existence and language, questioning, at the same time, the beholder's perspective and his figure of artist/composer/performer.

He graduated in philosophy in Venice, undertaking research about the relationship between Wittgenstein's private language and neurosciences (mirror neurons). His interest in contemporary philosophy contributed in embracing a linguistic perspective, important framework of his practice, in which the intersubjective contingency prevails over the individual perception.

He has been performing as a singer for more than ten years, combining the live activity with the composition of experimental music, first in the industrial-rock scene, more recently in the electroacoustic field where he makes his vocal performances coexist with field recordings. This visceral interest for sound brought him to undertake a Master's Degree in Sound Arts at the University of the Arts London, where CRISAP, one of the most advanced research centres in Sound Arts, is based.

Collaborations include: ‘Leeds! Leeds! Leeds!’, ‘Sounding the Portal’, ‘Soul Sinking’ and ‘Mit Augen’.
