︎Sensitive to the urgencies linking a threatened nature and a fractured society, Helio’s works considers sound as a space for porosity. Navigating the disciplinary boundaries of music, visual art, and performance, They have created a body of work that encompasses sound, music, performance, and installation...
The setup primarily revolves around the modular synthesizer and microphones. 
︎Hélio works with sound as an expressive material, and their musical gesture explores its roughness, ruggedness, and prominences. The artist pays special attention to sounds typically rejected in the musical process: feedback, buzz, etc..
