Comissioned by Festival Tremor 2018, in the island of S. Miguel, Azores, we conceived, developed and presented the performance Som. Sim. Zero, with a local deaf and hear impaired organization and guest musicians.
In 2019, we are comissioned to work with last year’s friends plus the Escola de Música de Rabo de Peixe.
The Som Sim Zero documentary on this year’s tremor was released.
What a beautiful film, what a great pride for all those who see it here.
Thank you Tremor Festival, thank you Asism Açores, thank you Escola de Música de Rabo de Peixe, thank you to everyone involved, thank you Fundação Galp, thank you Canal180!
Som. Sim. Zero!
Many thanks to everyone who continues to carry out this incredible joint effort that is Tremor. And many thanks to everyone who helps us build Som Sim Zero, year after year. It continues to be a wonderful discovery, a beautiful learning experience, an immense pleasure.
This year, at Teatro Micaelense, it was very intense and we were all very happy.

Som Sim Zero will be on the 25th of June at Palco Galp SPOT, at Rock in Rio Lisboa, at 15:00.
Many people have come to film and record our rehearsals at Cine-Teatro Miramar, in Rabo de Peixe, S. Miguel Island, Azores and there have been many questions and many answers. We are very anxious!
Those who followed our social networks realized that what was being created with the usual accomplices, the Association of the Deaf on the Island of São Miguel and with new friends, the Coral de São José, had everything to be very beautiful. The venue, Igreja do Colégio, posed new challenges, the reverberations, the absence of a wooden floor, the impossibility of playing percussions, everything opened space for a new level of creation: more conceptual, even more about sound, perception of sound, meaning Of the sound. At the same time, everything felt solemn, inside, spiritual, sacred. What was possible to create, in 10 days of many setbacks, in a joint overcoming, was a performance that fills us with pride and that touched all who managed to be there.
Thank you very much to everyone involved, your generosity and talent is impressive, thank you very much to the public, for the commitment to what was celebrated there, thank you very much Tremor festival, for once again trusting that this project has a path to follow.
