* Field recording as a way to encounter and articulate place


1:38pm, Copacabana
Metro stations in Rio are populated with extremely large fans constantly blasting air. They sound especially good in Flamengo, Botafogo and Uruguaiana. Siqueira Campos is ok. This is Siqueira Campos.

I’m fascinated by the sound of the fans, but it’s not just the way they sound: it’s also the way it feels to have the endless warm wind on our skin. Gabi dislikes the sound they make.
