about

In 2009, I have made a series of sound collages with Money as their theme. Entitled Conto-cápsula em 5 Movimentos, these pieces were built from fragments of TV sounds, focusing mainly on the text.

ABSOLETO arises from a challenge made by the netlabel Al Revés: to address the same theme and critique using only sounds and disregarding any form of speech. Similar to a blind person painting a canvas, it has to do with synesthesia and the translation-art of Augusto de Campos.

Maybe in the 60s all of this was conceived with greater clarity, but today this is not a concern any longer. If you think about it only as a paradigm, it becomes a rich challenge: to face what has been done in the last 60 years of the so-called electroacoustic music. I tried not to translate, but rather to expand the content of the message, as if the blind could now see, but not what we see.
