The Trouble with Harry (2013)

“Based on the true story of Eugenia Falleni, who passed as a man in early 20th century Australia, Lachlan Philpott’s play picks apart the rules of gender and sexuality that punish any transgression in a time when even being able to identify oneself as ‘trans’ or ‘lesbian’ was a long way off for most people  There is no way to know what really happened behind the closed doors of bedrooms of the past and Philpott playfully explores this ambiguity and confusion to raise questions about our own assumptions of gender.”

For ‘The trouble with Harry’, I worked with Felipe Hickmann, who composed some music material for the play.

Here is some of the “odd timbral and harmonic backdrops, underscoring the internal turmoil experienced by protagonist Harry/Eugenia” I composed:



No Chords Attached (2012)

Developed by Diogo Alvim, Eduardo Patricio, Pedro Rebelo and Rui Chaves, No Chords Attached “(…) is a site-specific piece that explores the physical, temporal and poetic strategies between two mobile remote performers and a pianist in a more conventional performance space (Chaves 2013, p. 35)”. It proposes a non-conventional performance situation combining soundwalk and instrumental music, making use of a feedback system that enables sonic relocations and superimpositions between contrasting physical spaces.

Summer Snail (2011)

Summer Snail is a game-inspired network piece by Felipe Hickmann that brings together two remote musician groups and two remote audiences.

My role: design of a dynamic graphic score system split in 3 applications, one for each group and a third one for the conductor/referee.

The piece is structured as a game with the aid of a dynamic graphic score (the illustration of a mountain). Both groups compete against each other to try and get to the top of the mountain.

More details here.

This video shows one group of musicians in Belfast (UK) at SARC (Sonic Arts Research Centre) playing with a remote group located at University of Sao Paulo (Sao Paulo/Brazil).
