Lilian Nakahodo and Rui Chaves
The Curitiba Sound Map (CSM) is an on-going project launched in April 2016. This endeavour focuses on a post-representational approach, i.e. develops a cartographic process based on an interview-led methodology that gathered personal accounts of a wide-range of Curitiba’s inhabitants (in a total of 29 participants). This process highlighted the affective dimension of the sonic in its relationship with a subjective-collective experience marked by memories, emotions and perceptions. This experiential framework is contextualized by the participants‘ own background foregoing traditional dualist or binary conceptions about our sonic environment. The project, initially thought as an online-based archive of the above activities, unfolded into other community-led initiatives with the purpose of raising awareness of peoples‘ aural experience in Curitiba (the city where Lilian Nakahodo lives). Nakahodo not only conducted a series of soundwalk workshops, but also created a site-specific event called “Do Paço ao Olho” with critic, artist and curator Rui Chaves. This performance, guided a group of people through the central region of Curitiba, where the heard soundscape was overlaid with a reproduction of previous (made in CSM) field recordings and interview-transcriptions read by Chaves through a megaphone.
