Alien Shelter – VR environment – Unity 3D (2020 / 2021)

This is a quarantine-psychological-relief virtual environment I created for my personal use.

Relaxing drones everywhere and a TV set on an alien planet. That’s it!

Since I was a kid, I always liked spending time in hiding or secret places. In the past years I built a few virtual hideouts. This one was made in 2020 and it has served me well during these pandemic times.

There’s something about being immerse, surrounded by drone sounds that I just love.

Custom Reaper/ TouchOSC – DAW controller template v. 0.61 (2021)

——– UPDATE (Dec 2021) : Current version HERE ———

🎄🖖🏽 Happy holidays, everyone! 🙂
Here’s my custom Reaper/ TouchOSC – DAW controller template (16:10 aspect ratio)
Download link: https://lnkd.in/ehTpFCm (template, Reaper OSC config, and PDF manual)

IMPORTANT: This template was made before the release of the new ultra powerful TouchOSC, so it was made for the version now know as TouchOSC mk1

This TouchOSC template was created to accommodate my own needs when working with REAPER in different workflows (editing, mixing and designing).

It’s not meant to replace keyboard and mouse actions, but to complement their functions and make prolonged editing and mixing work less tiring. It’s somewhat chaotic (I’m no graphics designer), but useful.

So, I’m sharing it here, hoping it can help you, too! =)

In Vivo – Art exhibition by Caroline Mesquita (2020)

In Vivo is

“: (…) an installation composed of a large ‘mother cell’ and a film commissioned for the exhibition. The video resembles a scientific documentary as if we were observing situations under the microscope. ‘It is a ballad within the human body’, reveals Mesquita, ‘bringing together blood cells, bacteria, viruses and many other microorganisms in abstract and colourful landscapes ‘. “

My role: sound design

We walk together (2020) is thought as a field-recording score that asks would-be performers to think sonically about a place, to produce sound within that place, but also to reflect on the changes caused by the pandemic both at an environmental and subjective level. This collaborative endeavor is a continuation of my exploratory work in novel ways of curating sound artwork outside institutional frameworks. The resulting work, using a visual reference, is a multi-layered and multi-linguistic ‘sequence shot’: an audio piece that straddles the line between fiction, documentary and musical composition.

The sonic essay is a collaboration between a series of artists located in different parts of the globe: Rui Chaves (Loulé, Portugal, 25/06/2020), Eduardo Patrício (Koziegłowy, Poland, 17/06/2020), Laura Romero (Valencia, Spain, 06/06/2020), Lilian Nakao Nakahodo (Curitiba, Brazil, 05/07/2020), Luz da Camara (Evoramonte, Portugal, 19/06/2020).
