On 16 June 2004, Lorenzo Brusci (TIMET) won a silver medal from the Royal Horticultural Society for his SONIC TUSCAN KITCHEN GARDEN ( TIMET and Florentine landscape architect Stefano Passerotti were invited by the Society to install a version of their sonic garden at the 2004 garden show in Birmingham (16-20 June 2004). Entitled Orto Abitato, this garden-plus-underground-sound-system resonates with the sounds of everyday family life: the sounds, the conversations and the popular songs. Sounds are diffused by sonic objects, designed coherently with the shapes and meaning of the garden itself, so the sound is acoustically and electronically integrated into the botanical world.

Brusci's underground sound system finds another application in Capezzana, at the winery Barco Reale di Capezzana. In celebration of the winery's 12th century of operation, Brusci created sonic rose fields and Kyma-processed Gregorian chants in the wine cellars. For more news from Brusci's fertile imagination, check out the TIMET website.
