#407: 2013.02.10

(listen to this show here: 

this edition of framework:afield has been produced in portugal by carlo 
patrão, of radio zepelim, and features non-dialogue sounds taken from 
the films of portuguese filmmaker manoel de oliveira. notes from the 

Manoel de Oliveira - Collected Silences

"If the eye is entirely won, give nothing or almost nothing to the 
ear…if the ear is entirely won, give nothing to the eye. One can not be 
at the same time all eye and all ear." Robert Bresson - Notes on 

The cinema of Manoel de Oliveira features a careful balance of image, 
sound, and silence. Long takes and static frames call attention to the 
rich auditory elements present in each scene. In this hour of 
Framework:Afield, we are going to explore the soundtrack of Oliveira’s 
non-dialogue scenes by separating the audio from its image. These sounds 
depict daily life in pastoral Portuguese landscapes. In the context of 
radio, they become the focal point while new visual layers are free to 
form in the listener’s imagination. The sounds presented in this collage 
are not organized according to the films’ chronology or storylines. 
Rather, they are grouped as much as possible according to other 
properties like volume, pitch, and intensity of the samples as well as 
by common themes like footsteps, wind blowing, characters breathing, 
wood creaking, etc. The sounds were taken from the following films:  The 
Hunt (1963), Past and Present (1972), Benilde or The Virgin Mother 
(1975), Voyage to the Beginning of the World (1997), My Case (1987), The 
Cannibals (1988), Word and Utopia (2000), The Uncertainty Principle 
(2002), Belle Toujours (2006) and Eccentricities of a Blonde-haired Girl 
(2009). At the age of 80, he hit the pace of making one film per year. 
Today, Oliveira is 104 years old and still going – the world’s oldest 
active filmmaker.

Produced by Carlo Patrão, Zepelim, Rádio Universidade de Coimbra
Narrative Readings: Susana Sampaio Dias & Erica Buettner
