As part of her ongoing exploration of “gendered listening” as a feminist tool, Anna Raimondo interviews Brazilian sound artist, performer and composer Mariana Carvalho. In her practice, Carvalho uses her own body as a filter, as a musical tool that acts as a membrane between her internal perceptions and what she shares with a public. By referring particularly to he work Me alimento de voces in which she asks people to sing into her mouth, she deals with the possibility of feeding herself on voices and otherness (voces in Spanish means “voices”, você in Portuguese means “You”).
