artist research: Thessia Machado

Thessia Machado is an experimental musician and sound artist who constructs kinetic contraptions that compose a soundscape. Listen to the soundscape in the video below with your eyes closed. As it progresses in time, the sounds escalate in intensity using higher volume and speed, building suspense and paranoia. There is a consistent, organised rhythm in the background, overlaid with other sounds of different pitches, timbre, speeds and shapes. The way she cleverly layers her sounds form a dynamic ‘theatre of the mind’ for her audiences.
