TQS (Tutto Questo Sentire) is an artist collective started in 2014 by experimental opera singer Olivia Salvadori, composer & cellist Sandro Mussida, video & sound artist Rebecca Salvadori TQS investigates the encounter between different artistic disciplines from the contemporary music, visual and performative international scenes. TQS exists in the form of a series of site-specific events on the nature of sound and its relationship with video, time perception, environment awareness and live-performance practices.
TQS outputs may be experienced as performing actions, staged multimedia productions, live media events and web-publishing content.
TQS’s projects have been possible thanks to the generous support of Roberto Lombardi, who has funded the project since the first edition.

Olivia Salvadori is a classically-trained soprano, an operatic solo performer, and an experimental recording artist. Combining her deep, lyrical voice and electron- ic soundscape, her music creates an eclectic avant-garde union. Her powerful yet sublime voice contrasted with pensive, classically-influenced electronic accompaniment creates a charged, intimate ambience with enigmatic undertones. For Olivia, music is an ongoing and limitless journey, guided by personal vision and creativity. She lives and works between London and Milan.

Is a Italo-Australian, London-based video artist with a long experience of filming environments following a non-hierarchical/chronological layering and sequencing of audio to footage. Her film work, including ambiguous short documentaries, artists’ portraits, music videos and non-synced live visuals, is both highly personal and wilfully elusive. Rather than following a classic, linear narrative, these take the form of visual compositions built through chance, association and repetition. Throughout the years, Salvadori has accumulated an extensive video archive from which she creates assemblages. This acts as the basis for filmic portraits of moments, people and environments.
