Project developed during a research residency at Universidade Federal do Rio de Janeiro (UFRJ)

Supervisors: Rodrigo Cicchelli Velloso and Samuel Araújo

Funded by Santander Mobility Scholarship


Almost Sound Diary is a web-based archive that collects a series of experiences from a two-month research residency in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. I invited people that I met while in Rio to collaboratively instigate different forms of listening and recording.


The project aims at transcending the exotic tale of a journey through Rio de Janeiro by allowing and acknowledging the affordances of participation. Almost Sound Diary explores the intimate connection between daily life and sound, and the use of sound as a thought-provoking tool.
