 Project: Momento Zero: the intermingling of different constructive principles.

The use of digital devices in social relations and the ensuing change in dialogue-subjective instances of communication have allowed further possibilities, linked both to the plurality and to the simultaneity of subjective expressions. By increasing the communication between the one and the many, on-line communication proposes new articulations within the processes of the formation of meaning, and at the same time compels us to reconsider many cultural practices based on separateness. Besides their visibility, the co-existence of different descriptions of the same kind of event requires cultural processes capable of simplifying the routes of the social validation of fields of knowledge, perhaps hitherto separate, and capable of reducing existing asymmetries between producers and consumers, artistic and technological experimentation, aesthetics research and processes of knowledge diffusion. Besides, new orientations rely upon a vision which considers musical events as objects or processes within a system of mobile references and roles, where meanings and structures could be reshaped many times. Biographical note. Born 1951, Dante Tanzi graduated in Philosophy from Milan University and went on studying electronic composition and musical analysis. Since 1985 he has been working at L.I.M., (Musical Informatics Laboratory), Computer Science Department, Milan University, under the scientific direction of G. Haus.
