M. Sons Perdidos


"Let’s start before the beginning… A trailer for TheMuseum of Lost Sounds. Soundscapes by Filipe Faria, coming from Idanha-a-Nova - arguably the most beautiful place in the world - a UNESCO territory as a Biosphere Reserve, territory of the Naturtejo Geopark of Meseta Meridional and Creative City of Music, combining tangible and intangible heritages.

Guglielmo Marconi (1874-1937), the godfather of radio technology, believed that sound never dies ... it just gets weaker and weaker to the point where we can no longer detect it with our ears. Any sound could, in theory, be recovered. Any sound from any time in the past. A lost sound could be heard again with the right equipment… a powerful equipment…

In fact, all sounds are lost sounds... to the moment someone can hear them... The construction of a Museum of Lost Sounds promotes the perpetuation of a community's personal and collective memories, of the creative potential of memory... The soundscape built by the biophonies, geophonies and anthropophonies of a territory... and the silent world..." Filipe faria

The Museum of Lost Sounds, a project Arte das Musas, by Filipe Faria, with the support of the Portuguese Ministry of Culture/Directorate-General for the Arts and the Municipality of Idanha-a-Nova.
