Location recordings at Gerês/Xures UNESCO Biosphere Reserve. Performance in collaboration with Luís Bittencourt at the event Rural Vivo! Campo do Gerês, Portugal.

A co-creation that combines sound art, musical and acoustic performance, acoustic ecology and bioacoustics. It experiments with relationships between the environmental sound of specific places in Serra do Gerês and the sound of acoustic instruments. While Cláudia made multi-channel recordings with various types of microphones at Mata da Albergaria, and created soundscapes to evoke the spirit of the places and the beings that inhabit them, Luís conceived and built acoustic percussion eco-instruments from found materials, such as water, stones, wood, leaves, among others. This first electroacoustic performance explores approaches to vibratory and musical characteristics based on the sound of places, such as spectra, resonance geometries and timbres, in a symbiotic relationship with the spatialized soundscapes.
