Sound dialogue

A lot is written or said on sound dialogue. Being a context of interpersonal relationship, Sound dialogue is presented in ways which change minutes after minutes. All the music instruments available can or cannot be suitable for Sound Dialogue. On one hand there is the “client (patient)”, on the other there is the professional. If patients can move as they prefer, according to their emotions or fancy, the music therapeutist has the task to lead the situation answering to what the patient does. The words “assisted” (client-patient) and “assistant” (the professional) (Mauro Scardovelli) indicate the conditions in which the two protagonists of the dialogue are in that moment. The assisted has some percussion instruments available (xylophone and glockenspiel), some membrane instruments (different kind of drums) and uses them as he likes. The assistant helps and promotes the dialogue in a direction he thinks appropriate.
