(I) At night, a boy wanders at the edge of a village carrying a luminescent rock. (II) Buried near the end of the 7km lap “Volta aos 7”, the rock shines beneath the soil. (III) Time is when, 2 years pass. From the water that fills up an anthropomorphic grave, a light sprouts with supernatural strength. Ignored or forgotten over the years, its power lies evanascent.

Video trilogy (2017-2019) in collaboration w/ Pedro Huet.

Podcast episode for Fonoteca Municipal do Porto (in portuguese)

Traditional-Experimental: Resonances of vernacular music

What are the melodies at earshot, at a distance and beneath other sounds yet to identify? The dawn in Trás-os-Montes opens our ears awaiting some sort of echo. At that moment, means, distances, and angles are calculated in the hope of hearing something returning.
Melodic similarities and stylistic differences are combined through musical revivalisms, harmonisations, or contemporary-classical adaptations. At this acoustic vanishing point you may be able to hear sonic traces of other realities, urgencies and desires.
