Project Description

Patrícia Azevedo & Clare Charnley

Projecto Gestosinho

The artists’ proposal is to create interactions with people in the area of Manhouce, its social and geographical space, identity and memory, to achieve a sound poem, using red sound chips, such as those found in talking toys. Questioning the power of oral culture and that of the rural world that still maintains a special relationship with the landscape and its uses, the artists will weave a poetic fabric of overlapped material and immaterial realities. The recording process is to walk and to record in sound chips a series of sound figures found in landscapes and everyday life scenes, and then to invite people to listen to them and to create a free translation of sound to the voice, an onomatopoeia or figure of speech, using their own voice, to be recorded on another audio chip.
