Biography Franco Maurina
MY interest for the physical structure of sound was, initially, the motor behind my work I brought the work and research into theater and dance performances ( with a pararentheses in cinema ) using sound system in real time. As well as my commissioned work, I researched the relation between sound and light which spurred me to build a physical model of a space, in scale of 1/10, complete with light projectors, audio diffusers, etc.useful for the study of the possible combinations between these 2 physical elements. The results obtained broadened my interest for a possible interplay between figurative contemporary art and theatrical expression. Consequently, the creation of FRAME THEATRE, a project which up to now is my major interest.
