The film Rehearsal (Ensaio) was created from footage recorded during the three years I submersed myself and my camera in several of the Portuguese Chamber Orchestra rehearsals. The conductor’s ideas on music echoed in me. I decided to give body to the sensations and thoughts this long lasting observation awakened in me.
The realization of the importance of corporality in the production of sound and the ​​freedom and responsibility inherent to the performance of each musician are the focus of this audiovisual essay on the orchestra.

Vertical time is an audiovisual essay about the filmic time-space relationship created between scenes from Maya Deren's films from the 1940's and original work of the film maker. Inspired by Maya Deren's notion of vertical time, a visual poetry of emotions and ideas that exist outside of the dramatic narrative, we experience thoughts and feelings woven together and expressed simultaneously in the moment.
