Interview Veronica Kraemer
Veronica Kraemer is an Artist from Brazil.
Could you please introduce yourself?
I am Veronica Kraemer, an artist that lives in Brazil. I have an atelier, where I make my mosaics, paint furnitures, pots, and I love to reduce, reuse and recycle! I love to teach everything I do!
Is there a sound dear to your heart? Could you tell us about it?
I love the sound of bells! This sounds make me go inside and meet a part of me that I forget sometimes. And there is a sound that makes my body shakes: The sounds of the mosques! I never went to places, that have those sounds. I think maybe it is from another live!
Is there a sound that brings back memories of your childhood?
The sound of the rain outside, in my mom`s house, close to Christmas.
Which certain disappearing sound should be preserved?
The sounds of Atari games!!!
How important are sounds to you in your everyday life?
I work alone in my atelier, and I listen to the radio all day.
I love random musics, sometimes I sing, sometimes I dance!
And sometimes people keep talking outside, loud, and I want to say: Shut up please, I´m concentrated!
Could you describe the soundscape of your daily work as an artist?
Music from 70´s, 80´s and 90´s.
Have you sensed a transformation of sounds over time?
Yes! Now they are a bit robotized, aren´t they?
Sometimes I have to stop and listen to the sound of wind, or rain, and spacially water.
Should sound be preserved? Why?
I think everything that passes makes a mark, and shall be preserved, for others to come and learn with that.
Sounds are special, just like other sensations. I think we can´t despise past, because we came from past!
Is there a sound you would not preserve? Why?
The sounds of war. Because they mean destruction, sadness, and bring us bad feelings.Veronica Kraemer, São Paulo, Brazil, 03/09/2020
