this edition is the first of a series of four entitled ‘amazonia revisited’, airing over the second half of 2023 as part of our framework:afield programming. this episode has been produced in brazil by thelmo cristovam and is entitled ‘day-night’. for more information see producer’s notes:

These radio programs emerged as the fruit of the creative residency that brought together four sound artists – Thelmo Cristovam (BR), EdBrass (BR), Rodrigo Ramos (BR) and Dave Phillips (Switzerland), from the sound material captured in 2006 by Thelmo Cristovam and in 2011 by Dave Phillips, both in the Amazon rainforest. The sound records of 2006, digitized and restored in the first phase of this project by Thelmo Cristovam, now resurface revisited and reimagined in the creation of the pieces in this series.

Program 1: Day & Night – by Thelmo Cristovam
Two parts, day and night, based on Thelmo’s field recordings without manipulation, using only minimal layers and editing. the first part, day, is composed exclusively of daytime recordings, in the second part, the same thing, with nighttime recordings. Additional daytime and nighttime recordings from Dave Phillips’ sources were selected in collaboration.

Amazonia Revisited is a project realized by CMC (Contemporary Music Cycle – Salvador – Brazil), in partnership with IOIC, with the support of Pro-Helvetia South America (CH), and aims to create new medium and long-term means of exchange between creators from Brazil and Switzerland, through a series of actions such as sound collection restoration, virtual residencies, shows of creative processes, phonographic and audiovisual releases, around sound art and its various modalities.

Thelmo Cristovam is a sound artist, improviser/composer and independent researcher in psychoacoustics. His poetic research includes radio art, noise/drone and compositions based on field recordings, free improvisation, photography, video and text, in multiple contexts.
