Click on one of the markers to listen to the sonic versions of that zone of Hell – each zone has been imagined by at least two artists. Click on the “i” symbol to read more about each artist’s interpretation.
The project uses the ways in which Inferno inspired more than 80 artists all over the world to bring a sonic dimension to this incredible work – a companion soundtrack to and a collaborative vision of the journey through Dante’s Hell.
One of the most striking features about the Inferno is the frequent references to sound and noise, and this project brings this to life, using the sound design, sampling and composition techniques of 2021 to celebrate 700 years since the death of a writer who changed the face of literature forever.
Edited selections from the project have been used to create a brand new soundtrack for the 1911 silent movie L’Inferno, widely regarded as the first full-length Italian feature film. A finely-knit patchwork of pieces from the project are blended together to create a new way to enjoy this visionary film.
Our version of L’Inferno is available for screenings and presentations throughout 2021 – please contact us if this is of interest.
Highlights from the project are collected onto Inferno – the album, which is available as free/pay-what-you-like download, to take the sounds of Dante’s Hell with you wherever you go.
