Sounds recorded and processed using sonic photography techniques to elicit the real and imagined world of listening on the island of Ilhabela, Brazil.

In June 2017, I was artist in residence at Casa Na Ilha on the island of Ilhabela, Brazil. While there I explored trails, jungles, water falls, the ocean and listened to and recorded the sounds of birds, incects, trees, people and life that inhabit this wonderful ecological paradise.

Casa na Ilha Art Residency Program takes place in the island of Ilhabela, at the north coast of the state of Sao Pablo, Brazil. Located at 200 km from the city of Sao Pablo, is the largest island of an archipelago formed of this and other of minor dimension. Ilhabela is an ecological paradise, covered by Mata Atlantica (atlantic rainforest) home of unique fauna and flora, with more than 73 beaches and 27 waterfalls of cristalin pure water, the highest mountains are held here. Being a unique ecological ambience, and harboring various endangered species, 84% of the island is a preservation area, protected by the Parque Estadual Ilhabela.

Thanks to Silvana and Pablo at Área de Soltura Monitorada de Fauna Silvestre Cambaquara (bird sanctuary), Marina, Niko, my follow residents Ellen, Francesca and Jaamil and our four-legged companions Hannah, Paço and Jorge.
