This Thursday I’ll be speaking about listening, sound, art, and computation in the series of lectures “Art / Thought / Sound” organised by Diogo Tudela and José Alberto Gomes at the School of Arts UCP.
The TBA Podcast features our work in its most recent episode, looking at the sound installation VOC(x), which should have opened last April but was delayed by the pandemic. The mix we created for this podcast looks at one among many possible articulations of the piece that will hopefully open one day.
From October 14 to January 11, the Audiosphere exhibition, curated by Francisco López, will be at the Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, in Madrid. Audiosphere is a large-scale exhibition with no images or objects, underpinned solely by sound works and an exhibition design that facilitates experiential, profound and prolonged listening. We’re happy to participate with our piece 77(0).

Sound installation: Mirrors, wood, loudspeakers, spotlights, computer, sound and electric cables, haze.
July-August 2019, Convento de São Francisco, Coimbra.
“Sulco (Medida de Corte)” is installed at a crossing, a closed space with three doors that is a passage to other rooms. It is inspired in the history of the convent and its multiple occupations — spiritual, industrial, and cultural — and creates an immersive space that emanates light as it absorbs the skin of the room. It tears the space and time of the room, in a plane that rips the floor and separates sound sources that oscillate between friction and synchrony, stability and temporality, chaos and harmony.
“Sulco (Medida de Corte)” was commissioned by Dar a Ouvir, Paisagens Sonoras da Cidade.
