The idea for the anti-tours
project emerged initially from a consideration of the four space-specific sound-performances in Brazil that formed part of http://alpha60.info
, my project for the 2004 São Paulo Bienal. The changes in my own attitude to recorded music were another important factor.
São Paulo based Bizarre Records sent to their mailing list. I corresponded with the people who replied and eventually picked about 10 apartments in four cities (São Paulo, Rio de Janeiro, Brasilia and Porto Alegre) in which to play. The project was funded by an Arts Council of Ireland Travel Bursary.
