The project Silence in the hall in time with music arises from the dialogue between the Amur Committee and the photographer Daniele Ratti and involves the realities that belong to the Committee and that identify themselves with the most important institutions operating in classical music.
Music and photography meet with the aim of supporting musicians in the current context of uncertainty and recreating a 20/21 season behind closed doors but told through images and sounds.
13 concerts, 13 theaters, 13 shots are the protagonists of Silence in the Music Room and become the content of targeted communication and promotion actions in support of artists and the world of culture.
“How do you photograph music?
Imagine a stationary, immobile theater; imagine the center of the scene, a single light that illuminates the musician and his instrument; imagine that you start playing for a set amount of time.
Now in front of him facing the audience there is a camera and a photographer, motionless for the entire time of the performance; only one photograph is taken in the still camera.
The result: an immobile theater on one side and a moving figure on the other. In this motionless moment, music lives. ” – Daniele Ratti
The Silence season in the music room was broadcast every Sunday at 6 pm between January 1st 2021 and April 4th 2021 on the Home Page of the AMUR COMMITTEE .
