Soundscape Composition: Paulista

Paulista This soundscape composition by Rui Chaves and Felipe Hickmann  uses both fixed and mobile streaming technology to construct a translocal musical and sonic performance linking SARC (Belfast), LAMI (São Paulo) and Paulista Avenue, in the heart of São Paulo’s financial district.

The avenue is home to a live webcam, which broadcasts a continuous video stream into an Internet portal. Under the sight of the live camera, a performer engages into a sonic exploration of the area in a set of choreographed actions that are part of an audiovisual composition – including video footage from the avenue and a trio of musicians on a live stage.

Premiere on 6th June 2011, at a network concert between QUB/Belfast and USP/São Paulo.
