"Sound Migrations is a means through which I share my journey through the world of sound, silence and the space in between."
As a sound artist and electroacoustic composer Renzo uses the sonic environment around him as primary source material that not only sets the tone to his work, but also acts as a powerful source of inspiration. Through his work presented in installations, live performances and sonic material for film/moving image, Renzo brings about a deeper sensorial engagement with listeners and audiences, be it in public spaces, performance venues, film and art galleries. Renzo holds a master's degree in Sound Arts from Oxford Brookes University and his on-going artistic research focuses on site-responsive and site-specific installation and performance aesthetics as responses to rural environmental atmospheres of Shetland.
