curated by Lilian Zaremba

The three works selected are part of the work that Thelmo Cristovam classifies as MSP - Mapping Sound of Pernambuco. The titles "Catende", "Monte Church" and "Olinda", indicate the locations where they were recorded, with a focus on metropolitan region of the city of Recife and the Zona da Mata region that surrounds the city.

Using a recorder HD Tascam DA-P2 and stereo microphone Rode NT-4, Thelmo left this equipment spoon sounds by one or two hours uninterrupted for after select and edit, in work that lasted a whole year.

CATENDE brings together two long stretches and shorter one in the middle of the composition, reveals distinct times of Sound acquisition in the environment.
