I research what else is possible with low-frequency sound and subwoofers and their relationship to human and architectural bodies.
Via a three-step creative methodology called BODIES AND SUBWOOFERS (B.A.S.).
1. According to the measurements of the space a subwoofer arrangement is created. The aim is to explore sound cancellations and unusual ways of distributing sound pressure throughout the room.
2.Sub-bass & infrasound frequencies (generated via analog synthesis and digitally) are studied, analysed, and tested in relation to the space, the subwoofers, and the bodies. Frequencies are selected with special consideration to the ones that can be perceived by the human body.
3. With these frequencies selected, I then compose the piece for the installation. When the methodology is not realizable, I play live concerts: THE SUB-BASS SESSIONS.

THE SUB-BASS SESSIONS (CONCERTS)
Is a compact narration of a selection of some key episodes that lead to the creation of B.A.S.. From a serious clubbing routine and relationship, as an extraction of the dance floor experience, to the contact with the ''Master of the Subs’’, Rafael Lins, the series of site-specific sound installations concept came to life after a decade of practices and obsession around subwoofers, bass and sub-bass frequencies.
