MOSAICOS SONOROS // SOUND MOSAICS

Mosaicos sonoros

Para este workshop os participantes vão-se poder expressar pela via sonora,  procurando atingir a expressividade pessoal através da captação de sons através da ferramenta que mais utilizamos no dias de hoje: o telemóvel. Visto ser um auxílio fantástico na nossa comunicação do dia a dia, se aproveitarmos o seu microfone, tal como utilizamos a sua lente para registarmos as nossas fotos, podemos obter registos sonoros que despoletem um imaginário e que contem uma história através do SOM. 

Este processo de criação nas atividades sonoro-musicais podem ser executadas no interior ou no exterior, podem ser realizadas com grupos de qualquer faixa etária e com ênfase em sons do ambiente e do meio que nos rodeia. Assim, o interesse não se baseia em ensinar música, mas sim uma pesquisa e uma consciencialização sonora do mundo que nos envolve. A criação de uma composição será o culminar de todo o processo de recolha de sons para uma apresentação sonora das paisagens que os formandos recolherem.


For this workshop the participants will be able to express themselves through the sound, searching ways to receive sounds by using one of the tools that we all know: the mobile phone. So, by using its microphone we will be able to make sounds that tell a story. This process of sound activities’ creation can be executed in the inside and on the outside, with groups with different ages and focus in the ambient sounds that surround ourselves. The creation of a musical composition will be the aim of this workshop and a future material for the trainees to present to their community.

Sérgio’s Workshop CATARYTHM


Facilitador: Sergio Vilela

At the age of 12 i began my music education through the learning of guitar, where i began my first chords and took guitar lessons with Sandro Norton, who was very important in my learning in guitar and music in gerneral. During my academic education i was in the Conservatory of Music Óscar da Silva where i learn classical guitar and in ACE – Academia Contemporânea do Espetáculo where i learn the first steps of theater in the area of sound and light design, making, during the course, solo projects in these areas. My first experience with people with special needs was in ALADI at Lavra, Matosinhos, where I spent my summer vacation collecting recycled objects and building musical instruments, in which we made a brief presentation with the users of the institution. I began my career in higher education in the area of Light and Sound Design for shows, and integrated several theater, music and performance projects as a light and sound technician all over Europe. For this Project i can make activities in the field of sound and light taking advantage of the place where i make the teaching activity, culminating in a presentation for the community and family of the adult learners.

I believe that I can be an asset in the scope of activities of the artistic field that can be the basis of workshops with adult learners, concretely in the area of community theater, light and sound. In light and sound design, and with my previous experience with adults with challenging life paths as well as few opportunities for lifelong learning, I also believe that my music skills can benefit this project, on several occasions, as a different method of teaching.
