Exposition

The Triangle and the Thin Biscuit: Reverberations of a Walking Practice (2020)

Thaís Amorim Aragão

About this exposition

The sound of the triangle played by street vendors who sell a kind of wafer, known as chegadinho, in the Brazilian city of Fortaleza is often associated with childhood memories. Taken together, however, these acoustically marked trajectories can reveal complex dynamics regarding the city's own territory and its relationship to other places in Latin America and Europe. This article aims to present data collected from street vendors who reported on how they use sound and space to communicate with the population. I also discuss documentary research on the precedence of the practice as well as its influence on Brazilian music.
