Traffic Performance on October 18, 2019 by Paulo Botelho
A musical response to Lewisburg traffic through voice, electro-acoustic sound, and projected video art. Composer and vocalist Paul J. Botelho will perform a new work where he will respond musically to the traffic sounds of Lewisburg. The outdoor performance will reimagine downtown Lewisburg as a stage and its traffic as performers. The performance will be a real time reaction to the sounds of Market Street traffic through live voice, computer manipulated sound, and projected video art.
Praised for his vocal virtuosity, Azorean-American composer and countertenor Paul J. Botelho
performs worldwide. His recent work explores live performed vocal responses to composed and
prerecorded sonic environments and includes the Visby Project (Visby, Sweden; 2017-18), Walmart 3
AM (2016), and in Moscow we marched (Moscow, Russia; 2019). His work has been performed,
presented, and exhibited in concerts, festivals, galleries, and museums across the Americas, Europe,
Oceania, and Asia.
