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 may be experienced as performing actions, staged multi media productions, live media events and web-publishing content.
TQS is made possible thanks to the generous support of Roberto Lombardi, who has funded the project since the first edition.
His work investigates the relationships between tradition and innovation in music, challenging the identity of musical languages and rites. His latest compositions involve historical, non-equal-tempered tuning systems questioning its perception by the western, standardized ear. On the intersection between acoustical/classical, electric and electronic fields, he writes for orchestra, chamber and solo instruments, electronics. Central to his work is the role of the performer, the experience of sound in the space and its relation to memory.
His work is published by Sony Classical, Boomkat, Tapeworms, Blume Editions, Metrica
Works and live in London.
Olivia Salvadori is a classically-trained soprano, an operatic solo performer, and an experimental recording artist. Combining her deep, lyrical voice and electronic 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 ambiance 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.
Rebecca Salvadori 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.
is an independent investor in public and private companies, focusing on innovative enterprises, incubators, and startups. He’s personally active in the cultural sector, fostering selected initiatives in the Italian contemporary art, music, and media.
