"This is a series of some audible subjects that, like small quick creatures, torment me and hug me on a daily basis since I've learned to think. I was able to look at them closely a few times, and their overwhelming grace made me want to capture them. It's the first time they let me do it, and we agreed to let others get to know them as well. Under this spotlight they exposed themselves as much as they liked, uneasily and nervously, but sticking to their everyday voice. I, feeling some times unable while facing this much information, prepared all my devices for this meeting (a mobile phone rescued from drowning and a small table). Maybe I convinced them when I told them that just because they were mine didn't mean that they were the only ones, and that many of us were formed by the same small subjects (like my dear Kido and Roa who also looked through the same window), and that if they left their home they would be able to meet others like them. So, I invite you to listen to them (using headphones or die) and to investigate your own as well."
Sofía Salvo. Berlin, May 2020.
Sofía Salvo (1994) is a saxophonist and improviser born in Buenos Aires and currently based in Berlin. She's dedicated to the sound investigation of her instrument and for her live performances she combines the use of her voice and the space as well. For "Más es mucho" ('More is a lot'), her first solo work created during the quarantine of April 2020, she explores the editing of digital audio through recordings made with her phone and the microphone on her computer. As a saxophone player, she enjoys exploring different instrumental settings, such as her groups Motor (trio with Marcelo Von Schultz on drums and Gustavo Obligado on sax) and El Segundo Es terrible (duo with Guido Kohn on cello), among others. One of her favourite ways of creating is through free-form face-to-face first meetings.
