Wanderlust #65: Zenith/Serrinha Do Alambari Soundwalk
9 November 2020
The two musical pieces invite you to listen to them as you see a landscape : you do not decode nor read it, but travel across and lose yourself within it, starting in the solar system through Zenith, before heading towards a tropical rainforest with Serrinha Do Alambari Soundwalk.
Loïse Bulot’s original octophonic piece, Zenith, has been commissioned by INA-GRM for Akousma Festival 2019 edition in Paris. Here mixed in stereo, this electro-acoustic composition made of piano strings recordings, exponential speed variations, circular movements and attraction phenomenons depicts surprisingly well the complex sun’s gravitational force on the planets.

Serrinha Do Alambari Soundwalk was composed by Martina Lussi during an artistic residency at Silo – Arte e Latitude Rural in Brazil. The work was originally presented on headphones and experienced as a soundwalk through the Brazillian forest around Serrinha Do Alambari. The sound piece contains field recordings including foot steps, breathing noises, snatches of voices and eletro-magnetic interferences. To explore the fluidity between the inner perception of the body and the sounds that surround us, the artist recorded mostly with binaural microphones whilst walking.
