Pore - Casanare, Colombia.
We wanted to analyze the soundscape of the Colombian eastern plains from a acousmatic perspective in order to understand the importance of light / dark relationship in this culture. For this we travel across the department of Casanare from the border with Arauca, all the way to the Meta River. When we approach the idea of darkness there, it was worth considering how the knowledge and traditions were shared in this place. The plains evening (and a place with no electric light) allowed us to live a acousmatic experience where the ear and hearing were the only reference of this unique landscape.
