Negalê Jones, a Brazilian artist who is part of #Frestas3edicao, is a sound artist and educator who
conducts continuing research on natural rhythms and the relationships between bioelectricity and ethnobotany. He uses electronics and programming to bring human beings closer to nature. By recording inaudible sounds of nature, he constructs electric circuits that amplify the resulting sound of the contact of hands with picked flowers, circuits that increase the volume of peculiar sound living plants make, and oscillators which produce sound based on the electric resistance of plant sap. His influences are concrete music, healing methods of Indigenous peoples, and the sacred particularities of plants according to Afro-diasporic mythology.
