Project Description

Pierre Gauvin (Canada)

Regarding the rural voices of the Gralheira mountain range, Pierre Gauvin proposed to record people reading short texts. These texts are preferably personal. They are letters, found notes, texts written by the reader, his/her past or present relatives. The texts can be related to daily events, love letters, notes of any kind, fictionalized or real life stories. In summary, these texts from past or present stem directly from Gralheira. The texts will be accompanied by sound pieces composed with sound effects, environmental noises and acoustic instrument sounds played with accordion, flute, kalimbas, etc. The resulting sound pieces are embedded with the regional personality.
