INSTALAÇÕES SONORAS / SOUND INSTALLATIONS

Simbioses é uma instalação sonora imersiva para uma experiência de comunicação

com a biodiversidade de vida vegetal que habita a Estufa Fria,

com as variações ambientais e os ritmos circadianos. O termo simbiose (do Grego: viver juntos)

pode ser definido de uma maneira ampla por toda a interação interespécies.

Na instalação Simbioses, poderemos experimentar a nossa interação com a vida vegetal,

através de plantas conectadas a estes sensores de impulsos eletromagnéticos.

Este encontro apela à importância de valorizarmos a nossa comunicação consciente

com as variações e ritmos do ambiente sensorial primário

Cláudia Martinho investiga e desenvolve uma prática experimental

de cruzamento entre os campos da arquitetura, arte sonora, ecologia acústica,

bioacústica e arqueoacústica. É licenciada em Arquitetura (FAUP, Porto, 2001),

mestrada em Acústica (Sorbonne Université, Paris, 2006) e doutorada

em Música – Arte Sonora (Goldsmiths, University of London, 2019).

A sua prática inclui instalações sonoras, performances e oficinas, como incentivo

a modos de escuta ativos e conscientes para o desenvolvimento integral do ser humano,

e como contributo para uma educação sensorial ligada à ecologia acústica.

Interessa-se pela co-criação espacial, sonora e musical como ferramenta e ação transformadora.

Tem realizado atividades em contextos diversos tais como: Noite Branca no gnration (Braga),

Invisible Places Symposium: Sound, Urbanism and Sense of Place (Açores),

Archaeoacoustics III International Conference (Tomar), Architectones: Sound, Art

and Architecture Seminar (Arc-Et-Sénans, FR), Tuned City – Between Sound and Space Speculations

(Berlin, DE). Entre múltiplos projetos colaborativos, é co-editora da antologia

Site of Sound: of Architecture and the Ear – Vol. 2 (com Brandon LaBelle, 2011, Errant Bodies Press).

Simbioses is an immersive sound installation for a communicational experience

with the biodiversity of plant life that inhabits the Greenhouse,

with environmental variations and circadian rhythms.

The term symbiosis (from Greek: living together) can be broadly defined throughout

the interspecies interaction. In the Simbioses installation, we will be able to experience

our interaction with plant life through plants connected to electromagnetic pulse sensors.

This meeting calls for the importance of valuing our conscious communication

with the variations and rhythms of the primary sensory environment. 

Claudia Martinho is an architect and practice-based researcher,

working at the intersection of architecture, sound art, acoustic ecology,

bioacoustics and archaeoacoustics. She experiments with environmental sound

through a spatial approach, into the architectural design of ambiances,

as encounters between humans, non-humans and phenomena.

Her practice is site-oriented and involves field recording, soundscape design,

installation, performance and workshops.

Claudia’s projects open up potentials of sites and result in a diversity of experiences

of environmental sound, enhanced by acoustic spatialisation.

She creates resonant soundscapes to transform the ambiance dynamics of a site

and affect multi-sensory variations.

This is a way to engage ecological awareness of surrounding vital forces

and symbiotic processes, which are usually neglected by the human being.

Cláudia has presented works in events such as ‘Invisible Places: Sound,

Urbanism and Sense of Place’ symposium (Azores, PT),

Lisboa Soa – environmental sound art festival’ (Lisbon, PT),

Archaeoacoustics III International Conference’ (Tomar, PT),

Architectones: Sound, Art and Architecture Seminar’ (Arc-Et-Sénans, FR),

Tuned City – between sound and space speculations’ (Berlin, DE).

She has been involved in multiple collaborative projects, such as co-editor

of the publication ‘Site of Sound: of Architecture and the Ear – Vol. 2’,

co-curator of ‘evento – public art and urban interventions’,

Biennale of Bordeaux, France, and collaborator with Bureau des Mesarchitectures,

Paris, France. She is currently art director of the cultural association Rural Vivo,

based in UNESCO Biosphere Reserve of Gerês, and coordinator

of the Architecture 3000 Research Network, part of Educatiooon 3000.
