Campo Próximo (2015-ongoing), which we loosely translated to Near Field/ Next Field, is a situated concert/ performance that plays with the perception and construction of places. For each iteration of the project, field recordings (image and audio) are composed in a way that relates the territory with the architecture of the venue, creating a dialogue between place and space. The performance takes the audience on a journey along each recorded location through different multi-sensorial approaches.

For Campo Próximo, Sonic Lab, different sonic environments recorded throughout our time living in Belfast (as PhD students at SARC) are played back inside the Sonic Lab merging with its acoustic properties, thus generating new sonorities that form the basis of the musical improvisation. The performance will be shaped by a set of relations that arises from this network of places.
