radiografia #4 — talking about who?, by pedro lima

3 Feb

to 10 Feb

free admission

sala de formações


Talking about who? is the name of the sound installation that forms part of the presentation session for Pedro Lima’s debut album. Three of the compositions on Pedro Lima’s disc were recorded in the Chapel of the Immaculate Conception in Braga. Using a microphone positioning technique, Hugo Romano Guimarães was able to capture not only the instruments, but also the vicissitudes and the way sound travels through this space. In this installation we can hear the idiosyncrasies of sound present in these recordings, almost as if we were inside the chapel.

Born in Braga, Pedro Lima is an outstanding Portuguese composer. He graduated from the Calouste Gulbenkian Conservatory of Music and, in 2017, enrolled in a Masters in Opera Making & Writing at the prestigious Guildhall School of Music and Drama. At the age of 21, he premiered his first piece for orchestra and a year later won the Portuguese Society of Authors Composition Prize. After a residency at Casa da Música in 2019, he wrote Talking About my Generation (2019), the piece that now gives its name to the composer’s debut album.
