Sou EP

Vanessa Castro

composed between 2017 and 2020, sou layers loops of lush guitar and percussion with castro’s introspective lyrics and a variety of synths, both analog and digital. drawing inspiration from the brazilian music of her childhood, as well as electronic and dance music, castro sings in both portuguese and english to chronicle the spaces between self and other, past and present, and the real and imaginary. the result is a bricolage of pine trees, tropical plants, and weeds bursting through concrete; a collage of the mountains of minas gerais, the view outside castro’s bedroom window in ridgewood, queens, and the forests of haukijärvi, finland, where many of the lyrics were written during a residency in 2019.

recorded in ridgewood, queens (2017-2020)
and haukijärvi, finland (2019)

Moon Shore II

Fei Yining

Composition and score by Vanessa Castro

On the shores of a lagoon filled with toxic diatoms, an A.G.I., which exists only in a seaside institute and has no embodied form, takes care of a genetically modified manatee that is resistant to the neurotoxin of pseudo-nitzschia. The narrative starts from the microstructure of the algae, which is similar to the storage medium "punched card" used by early Analytical Engine, and explores the love and gap between us and other species.
