Harmonies Unleashed: An artistic immersion in Faberlull

I want to thank faberlull for the wonderful experience he has given me.

I had the opportunity to study undisturbed in a calm and stimulating atmosphere.

Allowing me to meet people with different cultures, with different experiences and with a very open mindset.

Olot is a magnificent city characterized by a tranquility that cannot be found elsewhere, surrounded by nature.

Faberllull knows how to put you at ease by meeting your every need.

I was able to work on my sound searches.

One piano and some speakers were made available to me for each day of my stay in Olot and I was able to maintain contact with the instrument.

I was able to work on the processes of transduction of the gesture in the company of people who stimulated me from different points of view thanks to the masters of the various disciplines that surrounded me.

During my time at Faberlull, I delved deeper into my research on soundscapes, exploring the intricate relationship between sound and space. The serene surroundings of Olot provided the perfect backdrop for my contemplations, as I could immerse myself in nature and draw inspiration from its harmonious symphony.

Engaging conversations with fellow residents sparked new insights and challenged my preconceptions. Together, we explored the boundaries of our respective disciplines and discovered novel approaches to our artistic endeavors.

As my time at Faberlull drew to a close, I couldn't help but feel immense gratitude for the unforgettable experience it provided. The friendships forged and the knowledge gained will continue to shape my artistic journey for years to come. Faberlull has truly become a second home, a sanctuary where creativity thrives and boundaries dissolve.

I extend my heartfelt appreciation to the entire Faberlull team for their unwavering support, passion, and dedication. They have created a haven for artists like me, where ideas flourish, collaborations bloom, and artistic growth knows no bounds.
