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.
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.
