Her research explores listening as both a political and aesthetic experience, using sound as a device to build relational environments.
In her most recent works, she extends her radiophonic practice into sonic interventions in urban spaces. Within this process, the presence of the other becomes crucial in questioning the notion of identity, while listening becomes the catalyst of relation and exchange.
Her works, articulated as voice, language and sonic ambulation, lies in between sound and radio art, installation and urban intervention.
Dwelling on the borderline area of the sound’s intimacy and intimidation, Raimondo aims at fostering a negotiation between verbal and non-verbal communication, and the active participation of the audience.
