Join us – Online Exhibition, May 18 2021

COVID made us all Digital Nomads However, it didn’t stop us from cross-cultural, interdisciplinary learning and forming friendships for life. A series of migration topics were explored in this Program — from songs inspired by migration, mirror neurons, losing of one’s name and identity, to social media being a new tool of integration. The project culminated in an online exhibition and a public presentation, May 18, 2021

Original Lo-fi Composition – Human Mind and Migration

A special co-creation by Alice Taylor (UCSB) and Gabriele Pilotto. Gabriele wrote a lo-fi composition to accompany Alice's interview for the Human Mind and Migration program. This piece features audio clips from Alice's latest interview with Prof. Fabio Rambelli, and serves as an example of the creativity and technicality of the students involved in the Music and Migration subgroup, and the ability for music to be produced using soundtracks from all over the world, via the internet.

impactmania internship – Today’s Tools of Integration 

Join us on May 18th to hear directly from the students about this experience participating in the Human Mind and Migration internship program. On the 18th, we will present a public online exhibition and presentation with guests from all over the world. Students are really excited for this final event and to show everyone their work and findings.

Sounds of the Digital World: The Global Phenomenon of Lo-Fi Music

Lo-fi music is also a fitting representation of the group of students that has been collaborating on the project titled “Music and Migration,” part of the impactmania and Messaggero Veneto Scuola collaboration that has been occurring over the course of this year. Because myself and several students of Messaggero Veneto have been working together online, and furthermore share a love of music and aspire to research its movement and meaning, the genre of lo-fi ties in closely with our connection through the internet and the community created by music lovers online.

Foreign Voices

Integration has never been one of the problems. Social media has something to do with this, to have your place in society you have to be sociable. And social media is just being more social. Heni’s integration has been very easy thanks to his sympathetic attitude, so his origins have never been a burden. There have been offenses and there will always be, but when you have people who support you, they count for nothing.
