Angelo Custódio is an artist originally from Portugal and living in Amsterdam who works with voice and performance. He creates sonic based experiences which address the body and vulnerability from a crip/queer perspective. Within the program of Proximity Music: Sensing After Thought he is presenting his new work HUM (an/other), an immersive participatory installation expanding listening through touch and artificial intelligence. A machine learning system reacting to visitors processes the artist's voice. Visitors are invited to place a custom made tactile transducer on their own bodies, merging themselves with a hybrid organism. HUM (an/other) is presented in collaboration with Das Leben am Haverkamp at Stille Veerkade 19 with the financial support of Mondriaan Fonds, Stroom Den Haag and Stichting Stokroos.
