The acoustic documentary, a work that unites musical creation and sound document, emerges as a tool that allows to inform and transmit ideals of ecological ideological manifesto. Social commitment can be expressed through the creation of an acoustic work that involves a deep connection between the listener and the composition, merging the "reality" of the world with the immateriality and abstraction of sounds and music.In order to demonstrate the potential of the acousmatic documentary as a tool for the preservation and sustainable dissemination of historical and natural heritage, the work will be applied in a practical way with the composition of Shadows, a cycle of acoustic documentaries about nature and the megalithic monuments of the municipality of Sever do Vouga. Along a sound journey that will have as main sources the natural heritage and intangible heritage, the realization of this cycle of documentaries will present a historical narrative about the megalithic monuments. To this narrative that will inform about the prehistoric past of the area, will intertwine the theme of the duality of man and nature in a perspective of sensitizing to the sustainability of the planet and its entire heritage.Keywords: Composition; Ecological art; Acousmatic documentary; Sound document; Music; Sustainability; Heritage; Values; Soundscape.Research Group: Creation, Performance and Artistic Research
