Franco Bellavita oscillates between visual and sonorous universes through his works; including sound design, analog photography and collage as the main mediums.

His sound imagery blends field recordings from his daily life and travels, acoustic and electronic instruments, and digital processing into an intimist sensory experience, using phonography as a medium to overlap fragments of time and space into present.

Magic elements play a natural role in an otherwise mundane, realistic environment, creating a marvelous reality filled with supernatural beings and daily life situations, recalling "Magic Realism" tradition, painting soundscapes and scenes on imaginary canvas.
