Italian composer Giulia Regini’s NeOnSound is the winner of the 2021 Marcelle Deschênes Prize in Electronic Music, as selected by the jury of Musicworks’ 2021 Electronic Music Composition Contest.

NeOnSound is an audiovisual composition inspired by Dan Flavin's light installations,"  wrote Regini, when asked to describe the composition.  "This work comes from my personal interest in the relationship between sound and color. The video and audio processing are based on the thought expressed by this minimalist artist in reference to his works: 'It is what it is and it ain't nothing else.' The goal is to convey the emotions that the works communicate to the observer, who moves through the rooms of an exhibition. NeOnSound wants to communicate the emotionality of the experience of the viewer who stands in front of the artwork and who suffers its direct fascination, without conditioning. Dan Flavin's installations are the starting point for the inspiration and the protagonists of the video.”
