radia #484: Undercurrent / InLand
by Fernando Fadigas for Radio Zero, Lisbon
This soundscape composition is divided in two parts and is part of my sound research at the Faculty of Fine Arts in Lisbon during 2013.
Undercurrent is about water sounds and is taken from an audiovisual installation shooting in a river showing a journey between two points A to B, after a deep dive inside an undercurrent river.
InLand is a piece about earth sounds space and matter but also about internal and external space. A representation of different acoustic layers and sound environments. In this piece i processed different noises and samples taken from the interior of the earth. Many recordings with a real buried microphone and other substances like stone collisions, river undercurrents, sea waters, sand, fire, ashes, organic debris, frozen microphones and other deep acoustic phenomenas. It’s also a live improvisation and noise modulation of a boiling experience taken from a portable laboratory set up on stage. For sound processing i used Laptop, Ableton Live, Max/Msp, analog circuits and synthesizers like Mute Synth and Korg Monotron Delay. Premiered at EMS13, Electroacoustic Music in the Context of Interactive Approaches and Networks at CGD-Culturgest, Lisbon 2013.
