My name is Ulisses Carvalho. I live and work in Belo Horizonte. I've been working with fine arts and music over along 10 years, at one point I realize that I can't separate visual art and music from my interests. Then I started a think about how the sound things could be merged with the visual language on a piece of art, specially on objets, sculptures, assemblages, screen printings, and a couple parallel medias. I also realized that a sound can be material, and asked myself how a muted's art piece could refer to the sounds and vice-versa. Since then, I looking for images and objects with sound references to combine and make arrangements to convince me that they are able to work together. With or without sounds. With or without images.
