Giancarlo Toniutti is born in Udine (friuli - italy), 21.3.1963researcher in morphology and anthropology fields (linguistics, acoustics, material cultures etc.) and composer of experimental electroacoustic sound-works. Basically. The whole activity is centred on a basic notion, which is connected to an anthropologic view of the human activity in general, of its knowledge and the tools enabling and structuring such a knowledge. The sound activity is thus linked to a realm of sound we could simplistically define as electroacoustic or equally experimental, although these notions may have a meaning. The sound work, through the diverse natural developmental phases, is focused on some problems and notions both inherent to the nature of sounds and their structuring and articulation in sound forms. A research connected to the acoustics of materials, chosen as sound sources or generators, materials by now almost only of an acoustic kind (natural objects, custom-made objects and natural sound sources recorded on field). The work is thus strictly connected to the acoustic-morphologic nature of the sound sources, and the action is directed to allow and/or induce such sources to generate sound (microcompositional aspect), in the observance of the inner characters of the materials and their forms. At the same time a research on the notions of form linked to its functions of an anthropologic (and somehow biologic) character, on which a work related to the sound morphologies fits (macrocomposition), almost exclusively connected to analogic means of action onto sound (magnetic tape and equalization, for example). Has xollaborated with Andrew Chalk and Conrad Schnitzler.
