Each day from March 1 to April 5, 2017 Manuel Pessôa de Lima followed the randomly generated instructions dictated to him from a Python script to create sound collages from a mixture of analogue synthesizer, cassette recorder, and found audio from YouTube videos. Each one of these collages also incorporates an English to Portuguese translation, configuring them as "lessons" which invites new meaning alongside the soundscape. Presented here in four chapters, this edition of the work (EV006) is a composition drawn from the 217 minutes of material which was produced during these 36 days.
