(Un)Folding 31:21


This piece was composed for a live performance at the 2016 Sonic Scope festival to which Emídio Buchinho and Ricardo Guerreiro brought private individual intents that were shared towards the construction of an unpredictable path.

“A path is made by walking on it” should serve as a motto for a constructive experience of extending space-time: an experience marked by sensual contact with the materiality of all things, starting with sound. The relational dimension of sound marks a regime of transmissibility that exposes the multi-faceted nature of sound objects, that are not characterized by their aural dimension alone. The continuous recognition of the surrounding acoustic environment would therefore be the shared strategy for a process of listening that would feed the creative dialogue.

How can the actions of a musician on stage contribute to the sound?

How can formal unfoldings and redoublings extend the experience of heightening presence and simultaneously deepening the sensation of silence?

How is it, finally, possible to underline what is excluded from what is done?
