I have been exploring sound and music across many creative, often multidisciplinary contexts, since 2007. Moving through academia (B.A. in Sound and Image, M.A. in Music Arts), in my home country of Portugal and abroad, I have been combining a conceptual perspective on sonic work-making with a DIY ethos to achieve an exciting, experimental approach to audio recording and performance. Using turntablism and sound appropriation practices, editing and sound design, composition and interpretation, installation and video, among others, my work balances folk storytelling with noise and improvised soundscapes.
In concert halls, cinemas, residencies and workshops, whether working solo or in collaboration, the boundaries between creative disciplines and forms, and those between the individual and the collective, have been constantly questioned and diluted in my practice. For more about me, here are my answers to “Fifteen” Questions.
