Exhibition at Vera Cortês

Artist André Guedes invited me for a collaboration while developing his Formas Antigas, Novas Circunstâncias (2019) installation, which features a sound piece developed with singers Marco Alves dos Santos (tenor) and Nuno Dias (bass). I composed the score and later recorded the singers at Goela. The piece inaugurated on the 21st of November 2019 at Galeria Vera Cortês.

“A tangential approximation to the operatic recitative format, the libretto of the piece introduces a dialogue between two masculine voices: one of them is, possibly, that of an urban design historian detailing the urban and social transformations undergone by Italian cities during the second half of the 20th century, and the second possibly that of an archaeologist alluding to the historical processes that lead to the rise and downfall of the city of Troy.” (João Mourão and Luís Silva, exhibition leaflet)
