Other Registers is an immersive sound installation which deals critically with the impact of police violence in the period in which our city is receiving international attention due to the Olympics. Created with public security data, a soundscape is the focal point of the work, accompanied by a model of a caveirão (a type of armoured personnel carrier used by the military police in Rio), symbolically turning an instrument of violence into a musical instrument.
