It is a pleasure to launch the series of productions commissioned by RADIA members, with Painè Cuadrelli and his soundwalk in Milan, the city Luciano Berio and Bruno Maderna portraied in 1954 in Portrait of a city, the first electronic music piece ever recorded at the Milan's RAI Fonology Studios (Italian Radio and Television). As the oral narration is a primary key of this soundwork, Cuadrelli's portrait is much more about sounds and field recording; it was produced recording sounds in the city of Milano, Italy and manipulating it into a collage of small compositions and rhythms. The show is intended as a modified soundwalk, where pieces of real-world soundscape get transformed, cut'n'pasted, mixed and remixed, becoming something else, yet keeping the original texture.

Recordings were made in main spots of the city centre: Piazza del Duomo, Duomo (inside), Triennale Museum, Teatro dell'Arte, Parco Sempione, to name a few, in differents moments of the day and night.
No addictional sounds were used.
