Event Museu Zer0 @ Summer in Tavira 2021

S(o)al, de Miguel Carvalhais e Pedro Tudela
Salt is a striking element in Tavira, closely linked to its history, culture, economy and the Mediterranean diet, as well as its visual and soundscapes. This piece, commissioned from Museu Zer0 to the artists Miguel Carvalhais and Pedro Tudela and created specifically for the Ermida de São Roque, explores elements of the geophony and anthropophony of salt — the sounds of its genesis, production and use — and uses salt itself , as a visual, plastic and sculptural element for the construction of an immersive space. Occupying the Ermida de São Roque for a month, this piece challenges its visitors to develop a prolonged spatial and sound exploration and to discover formal and sound relationships between the elements of the piece, the church space, the city, the territory, and the visitors themselves.
Artist's biography:
Pedro Tudela and Miguel Carvalhais have collaborated as @c since 2000, having produced a long list of performances and editions and regularly collaborating with other artists and collectives. Their work also develops in the area of ​​sound art, having developed several installations in a practice that complements and expands a work marked by radical experimentalism. In 2003 Carvalhais and Tudela founded Crónica, a publishing house dedicated to experimental music and sound art, which they have been directing since then.
Music by Luis Conceição with digital background
In an exploration between analogue art and digital art, in the context of a religious space, Museu Zer0 presents a live performance by pianist Luis Conceição, with digital image as a background, on a screen where the very stories that inspired the musician to produce the music are projected. Four musical works by the pianist are presented, two of which was created specifically for Museu Zer0, and premiered at this time. – Movimento, Aliança Submersa, Reflexos e Caminhada. From the reflection of the movement of people and the world and the inevitability of their action, to a walk on a beach, passing through a lost alliance at the bottom of the sea or the idea of ​​sounds that reflect each other like mirrors, we invite you to listen pay attention to these works, accompanied by the animated image, in an unprecedented format in the city of Tavira. After having the opportunity to see his first performance by this pianist live, in the Cloisters of Convento do Carmo on August 18, and other live performances, on a date to be announced, in the Ermida itself, visitors will be able to enjoy the music and image digital, until September 17th.
