Pulsajes (Pulse_Scapes)


This project was born in 2006 when I won the Phonos Scholarship. Pulsajes, is an imaginary soundscapes intrusion. An electronic material where it is proposed to travel from identifiable sounds to a imaginary molecules that makes up the sound field. The word Pulsajes (Pulse-Scapes) is the mix between the words landscape and pulse, the initial concept was rescued from a text by Carlos Castaneda (The Teachings of Don Juan) where a sorcerer’s apprentice experience a changed perception, where all the senses are unified in a single direction, and therefore he started to hear / see the whole environment, like a woven matrix. This story coincided with some texts that he had found on the physical theory of strings (string theory) and at first glance both stories appeared to have some parallelism. Accordingly, Pulsajes, is the sum of fragments, sound stories that recreate this idea of sound as a tangible object, that show as an imaginary journey that occurs within and without us. Therefor the starting point of this project is the question “where the dreams come from?” “Are we a kind of receptors of universal dreams?”
