From Quintetto‘s goldfish performance to mouse-made percussion in Orchestra Da Camera, Quiet Ensemble specialises in unexpected audiovisual experiences. The studio takes a research-based approach, focusing on seemingly insignificant yet wonderful elements – like the movement of a fly, or the sound of trees. Installations and perfomances celebrate the “invisible concerts” within hidden, or overlooked, aspects of the environment. Founders Fabio di Salvo and Bernardo Vercelli are driven by “the balance between chaos and control,” generating their projects by capturing the essence of various objects, forces and creatures.
