Self-isolation Soundscapes

Self-Isolation soundscapes


Serie of daily videos on InstagramTV with field recordings and sound improvisations with electronic media made from the window of my studio located in Mexico’s City downtown, during the confinement due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

This project captures not only the visual and sound landscape of a given moment, but also a way of dwelling through time. As a journey log, these soundscapes and audiovisual recordings represent the feelings and perceptions of an explicit period of time filtered through a series of personal, intimate reflections that reveal a dynamic and sensitive relationship with the environment.

he project was born and lives in the digital space, as a series in my Instagram account: @jrivasmx IGTV. However, in a desperate attempt to question the interactions within social media, it looks for the direct, raw interaction between a physical object and the intimate, paused listening to a needle furrowing a vinyl surface -with all the possible errors and lisps- aiming to embrace and share an instant that remind us that in nature everything is connected.
