In 2010 I was awarded a 20-ton block of marble. One year ago, this rock was extracted and loaded onto a boat that sailed on a symbolic route between Italy, Malta, Tunisia and Libya, releasing the marble block into the Mediterranean Sea. The route, followed on GPS, was designed to highlight points of interest – from a geological rift to nautical borders demarcating oil and gas concessions, areas of military operations, or the migration of a sea-turtle crossing the patrolling lines of the European Border Agency FRONTEX. 


The sound recorded on this journey beginning with the extraction of the marble, then along the shores of Malta and Tunisia finally leading to a location in the middle of the sea, is the starting point of the immersive eight channel sonic composition and sonic performance presented here. It includes the hum of engines; the ceaseless sea churn; the songs of seafarers and fishermen; the unique rhythmic matrix and resonances from ancient amphorae.
