radia #665: Screaming Tower
by Carlos Santos & Nuno Torres for stress.fm (Lisboa, PT)

Screaming Tower is a site-specific audio performance based on the flux of water delivery public system, and uses electronics, alto saxophone and field recordings diffused by a set of mobile loudspeakers.

The performance took place in the last level of a resonant water tower, about 40 meters high, located in Barreiro city, Portugal, in June 2017, as part of a performance event commemorating 80 years of public water delivery.

The architectural space is the “motor” for the development of the piece. Each of the generating sound elements: electronics, field recordings, saxophone, contribute as all for the displacement of sound in the resonant circular dome of the water tower. The usage of low and high pitch sound material, small percussive elements found in field recordings or played by the saxophone, were distributed by realtime mixing process of carefully placed speakers,
so that space could vibrate revealing its hidden “music”, as the last character in this broader sound spectrum process.
Music for vertical structures.

Carlos Santos: electronics, field recordings
Nuno Torres: alto saxophone.

Mixed and mastered by Carlos Santos

DIE ZWEITE HÄLFTE präsentiert:

radia #387: Latesummer_Night’s_Dream (diving for pearls)
by Paulo Raposo for Radio Zero (Lisboa, PT)

The perfect timing for shell hunting is immediately before and after low tide. At this timing, clandestine shell hunters suddenly come from the dunes and cross the low waters on foot. The small boats are stranded in the sand gently moving with the wind and soft south currents. The shell workers are now not only fisherman or related, but also people that have other activities or jobs, even lawyers, and they spend hours on the water to get 3 to 8 kg of clams to make a living.

This collected field-recordings from and near the sand banks are edited and overlap different places where the shell hunting persists as a clandestine way of life.
