> ANDRE CASTRO
> André Castro (b.1983) is a sound artist from Lisbon, graduated in Sonic Arts at Middlesex University, where he studied, among others, with Salomé Voegelin, John Dack, Thor Magnusson and Martin Robinson. He started his artistic education in 2001 in the areas of contemporary dance and performance arts at the performative arts centre c.e.m-centro em movimento (Lisbon); since then he has been a regular collaborator of this space.
> André’s practice has been shifting between two different universes. On the one hand, the computer music world, with its meditative textures, harsh noisy sounds, blips, and experiments with custom-built software with SuperCollider. On the other hand, a phonographic activity, in which he goes out with a microphone trying to capture the incredible aural diversity of our world and the voices and stories that hide in each person. Most of André’s work has in common the evasion of visual elements, an acousmatic sound that aims to subvert the dominance of the vision over the other senses. In recent years he has nourished a growing interest for the radiophonic medium, which has become a fruitful source of inspiration and for which he has been creating pieces for 3 years.
> A significant part of his practice has been developed through collaborations with other artists, such as the ongoing improvised music duo with Martin Aaserud; The performances Entre¡ and A Verdade da Alface and the current project of sound portraits of mothers and their babies with Laura Bañuelos; the sound design for the installations of Maria dos Milagres and Miguel Rafael, and the dance choreographies of Ainhoa Vidal, José Vidal and Sofia Neuparth.
