Scratching

Live sound performance   

Lagos, Nigeria 2017

“Scratching” is a sound art project that has two phases, this point in my research was a step after collaboration with “Kwasi Ohene-Ayeh” visual artist and curator from Ghana, we collaborate in Lagos; 2017 Lagos Biennale, in this project I was discovering an integrated approach between the sound of old architecture building in the city with the sound of the human body.

By recording the frequency of the soundwave into the concrete of an "Ilukwe" house in Lagos city, which has a historical background and stamping in the social memory of the country; merging and played live with the sound of the Blood pressure circuit; I asked Kwasi to perform his mental state in the meantime, I amplified his blood flow and his heartbeat, maximize the sound of the body through sensitive microphones.
