Land Music – (2023)Territory-specific performance – Bergamo e Brescia Capitale della Cultura 2023
[ITA] Land Music è un concerto commemorativo che riunisce le parrocchie dei 448 comuni delle province di Bergamo e Brescia.
Consiste nel far concertare simultaneamente i campanili presenti sugli oltre 7.500 chilometri quadrati di territorio; risultando di fatto il concerto spazialmente più ampio mai eseguito.  
Land Music accadrà il giorno 18 marzo 2023, giornata nazionale in memoria delle vittime del Covid. Alle ore 20 ciascun campanile suonerà: ed eseguirà un numero di rintocchi pari alle vittime provocate dalla pandemia nelle parrocchie e nei comuni di appartenenza del campanile, contribuendo così a creare un “concerto esteso” che unirà simbolicamente le due province.

Stefano Malosso, director of Limina Rivista, interviewed the artists to deepen the artistic vision of the duo, from their background to the concept behind Sound is Dogma.The interview took place in Milan in August 2020, and the result is an intense article published on Medium.Read it and feel free to share it with your audience.  
In order to let the audience reach the highest level of physical experience Nessun Dharma strongly believe that the live performance must create a dialogue between air sculpture, space and architecture.Please consider to book us a performance in a kellar, a church, your flat or in the woods.Please share your thoughts on a plausible collaboration with us.
