Born 1977 in Porto, Portugal.
Lives in Porto and Campo do Gerês, Portugal.
I am a practice-based researcher and my interests include bio architecture, resonant geometry, field recording, soundscapes, acoustic ecology, psychoacoustics, archaeoacoustics, cosmology and sound therapy.
I have been exploring aural architecture and resonant geometry as tools to foster an integral education, consciousness transformation and ecological ways of living. I am interested in co-creating architecture as a communication channel, in which the language of vibration and geometry are used to resonate and attune with self, others, the surrounding place, and the spacetime continuum.
I have been developing my work in individual and collective processes, through dynamics of bio-construction, soundwalks, workshops of universal geometry, field recording, soundscape composition, performances, installations, papers presentation, publications, experience of sites’ resonant geometry, circles of music and dance.
