about

The basis of (ANT(i)SOM) is formed by field recordings with ants at the villages of Piódão (Arganil) and Alvoco das Várzeas (Oliveira do Hospital), at the heart of Beira Serra in Portugal. This is the area where Luís Antero resides and where he has been building his project of sound archival and documentation, through the artistic practice with sonic landscapes and soundmarks of the villages of this inner area of Portugal.

The recordings with ants were posteriorly mixed and manipulated with other sounds present in this territory, in an almost-live setting, by deconstructing the original recordings and building a sonic amalgamation where rurality is no longer perceptible and that gives space to other acoustic readings.
