Mamori Sound Project is a 2-week residency for professional sound artists and composers with previous experience in the area of sound experimentation and field recordings. It takes place at Mamori Lake, in the middle of the Brazilian Amazon, and involves theoretical/discussion presentations, field-work and studio work. The workshop/residency has a special focus on creative approaches to the work with field recordings, through an extensive exploration of natural sound environments. The residency is an intensive immersion into the sonic environments of the Amazonian rainforest, as well as into a myriad of open questions about field recordings, “sonic reality” and sound creation. Leah Barclay was invited to participate in the 6th Annual Mamori Sound Project in October/November, 2011. Mamori is conceived and directed by Francisco López, internationally recognized as one of the major figures of the sound art and experimental music scene.
