everything leads us to believe that there is a pattern ...
... a complex system.
we call these facts as occurrences
considering that they arose sporadically
a low frequency sound has been reported
... in different parts of the world
yes, the reports are similar
and the presence of gases
the algorithm was categorical ...
there is an interconnection with tropical fires
calm down, we are monitoring this over there.
my data is insufficient so far
we need time.
and avoid 'that' term
It is not convenient
but the community wants answers
time is running out
the data is being analyzed
it's still early
there is no secure projection algorithm
the second sample, here
this variation is not included in the previous report
does not make sense
we must hide it
treat it as an anomaly?
do not use this term
follow the protocol .. it is not safe
hiding it could change the result
of course it would change
listen, it wouldn't be suitable now
we need to enter the current data
collapse is inevitable
the previous algorithm was incorrect
How much time left ?
We don’t know
wait a little longer.
fires are increasing.

- “A dialogue between two scientists; the need to wait to obtain conclusive results from experiments and algorithms; the anthropic actions that affect different places of the globe, because everything is interconnected in the biosphere. ”
The hummmmm (2020) is a video based on a supposed sound phenomenon of an inexplicable source. The project derives from reports obtained by decades of ordinary people in different parts of the world about the experience of hearing a strange low frequency noise. Independent researchers or enthusiasts began to order and classify these strange events in order to point out the possible sources of such occurrences. According to them, the number of testimonials (about 17 thousand) is too large to be dismissed as individual hysteria or belief in the supernatural.
This project was held remotely during the Pivô - Research residency programme. Focused mainly on studio practice and project follow-ups, the initiative is aimed at creating an environment that values experimentation, where individual research times are respected, and where artists and curators are provided with frequent interchanges.
The Schumann resonances (SR) are a set of spectrum peaks in the extremely low frequency (ELF) portion of the Earth's electromagnetic field spectrum. Schumann resonances are global electromagnetic resonances, generated and excited by lightning discharges in the cavity formed by the Earth's surface and the ionosphere.
* To hear the frequencies is recommended the use of headphone (notice: the 7.83 Hz resonance is imperceptible to human ears)

The video “The Hummmmm” was showncased in 2021 at the “Belka’s Noise” event at Belkos Triukšmas by invitation of Karolina Sadlauskaitė in Vilnius (LT) and in the group exhibition “Algoritmo Cósmico” at Zipper Galeria, curated by Icaro Ferraz Vidal in São Paulo (BR). In 2022 he was part of the project “Mapping the Cartographic: Contemporary Approaches to Planetarization, curated by Rewilding Collective, on exhibition at the Drugomore Gallery in Rijeka (HR).
In 2023 the video was showcased in Bratislava (SK). A series of experiments that proposes new approaches to planetary thinking, highlighting the importance of listening and attuning to the sounds of the earth curated by Collective Rewilding (Sara Garzon & Sabina Oroshi) as part of 'A Plant' program inutiated by Lýdia Pribišová (Kunsthalle Bratislava).
This programme was organised under the patronage of the Mayor of Bratislava Matúš Vallo, realised with support of Brazilian embassy in Bratislava.
