João Castro Pinto (Lisboa, 1977)

BIO

João Castro Pinto is a Portuguese sound artist & composer interested in the art of composing silence with sounds.

After playing (mostly guitar) with several independent rock bands, in the beginning of the 90's, João Castro Pinto started his creative activity as a sound and intermedia artist in second half of the 90's. The main output of his artistic production comprehends the domains of sound art, experimental electroacoustic / tape music, sound design and intermedia research, in a trans-disciplinary perspective of confrontation, concerning digital media. His sound work ranges between: soundscape composition, radio art, dense droning, noise, electroacoustic, acousmatic, tape music and experimental electronic genres. He plays live electroacoustic music, with and without instrumentalists, as tape music / spatialization concerts. Castro Pinto is also a freelance sound designer working mainly with independent and underground films. Since 2002 he's been the artistic director and producer of the "Hertzoscópio - Experimental & Transdisciplinary Arts Festival" and the "Hertz_extend#1", both dedicated to the divulgation of contemporary experimental music, video-art and intermedia.

His academic path is reflected on his works as it also indicates which are the main artistic perspectives and ideas of his interest.
He graduated in Philosophy from the New University of Lisbon and is currently finishing his Ph.D. dissertation in Computer Music @ U.C.P. / C.I.T.A.R. - Research Centre for Science and Technology of the Arts.

João's fundamental artistic intent resides on the exploration and recreation of natural sound and visual elements that are abducted from their original context trough digital recording technologies, and then recreated in another context and space-time that intends to create a deep inner experience. The common denominator of the artistic goals of the pieces that he has presented thus far focuses on the intention of creating an intense sonic experience that provokes in the audience something similar to an existential glimpse that portrays the imperative need of searching for a way to access the ultimate inner-space, which is both intimate and trans-personal.
The symbolic and plastic research operated by J. Castro Pinto to achieve the referred goal, has a means to a different end than the research itself. At stake is a true medium that materializes itself in a modus operandi of distension that operates by serving as the deconstruction of the mechanical automatisms that, on a daily basis, constrict and subjugate the existential human point of view, by which, phenomenally, remain immobile and underdeveloped the operative processes of the perceptive consciousness and the conditions of possibility to access the inner-space. The path of the artistic experience that leads to the discovery and conquer of this inner-space (or that leads to the immersion in it), constitutes the center of the experimental & trans-disciplinary researches, practices/concerns of João Castro Pinto.

João Castro Pinto is a composer released and proudly endorsed by MISO MUSIC PORTUGAL's - MIC.PT (Portuguese Music Research & Information Centre) & MISO RECORDS.

The piece is an electroacoustic collage as it was composed with samples from great works. The follwoing composers were sacked: Bernard Parmegiani, Iannis Xenakis, Giacinto Scelsi, Tetsuo Inoue, The Deep Listening Band, Phill Niblock, Alejandro Viñao, Ake Parmereud, John Cage, Asmus Tietchens, François Bayle, Iancu Dumitrescu, Pierre Henry, etc...
I didn't process or altered the original audio samples, the only techniques used for the composition were editing and multi-tracking mix. The name of the piece is a parody to John Oswald's concept : Plunderphonics.
