Tunnel Sonoro [Sound Tunnel] (1966)
This project series documents the sound performance "Tunnel Sonoro." It was created in 1966, when Pettena was experimenting with music and worked with musicians. "Tunnel Sonoro" was one of the results of his collaborations with musicians. This project consists of a sound performance during which a performer, entirely dressed in a metallic bodysuit, crosses a narrow tunnel "in which, by scrapping against the surfaces, their body 'played' the environment, imitating the sound of the wind [...]."  The performance was conceived for the (Musica Elettronica Viva), a live acoustic and electronic improvisational group from Rome.
The project series contains a project description in Italian and in English, a reproduction of a publication from the Biennale di Firenze describing the project, and drawings of the tunnel and the metallic bodysuit.
