About the Artist
Matthew Shoemaker (Seattle) received 2007 GAP Award funding to attend a two-week invitation-only residency with the Mamori Sound Project in December 2007. The program is located in the Brazilian Amazon, and run by Francisco Lopez, a major figure in the experimental music/art world (and a PhD eco-biologist). It has a special focus on creative approaches to working with field recordings, exploring natural sound environments and bioacoustics, and includes theoretical discussion, presentations, field and studio work. Each participant will develop a sound piece to present to the local community at Mamori Lake.
