Binaural is the first section from my three-part Bachelor Graduation Thesis entitled Mutuo. The whole project is based upon the invention of a Brazilian Dj duo through different materials, in which I try to simulate their evolution and transmit their personalities, realities and passion for music through Graphic Design only — no use of sound.
On this first phase I chose to create a Zine in order to talk conceptually about what they like, what they do and who they are. This two-color print was developed entirely as if the duo — composed by Ana and Davi — had created it, even before they actually became music artists. This material was crucial to the project as a whole because it allowed me to introduce these two fictional characters and create a solid ground for their history and evolution.

Binaural é a primeira seção do meu Trabalho de Conclusão de Curso, dividido em três partes. O projeto consiste na invenção de uma dupla de Djs nacional chamada Mutuo através de diferentes materiais, simulando sua evolução e transmitindo suas personalidades, realidades e paixão por música usando apenas o Design Gráfico — sem uso de música.
Nessa primeira fase escolhi criar uma Zine para conversar conceitualmente sobre o que eles gostam e fazem, quem eles são. O material foi criado em duas cores e desenvolvido inteiramente como se a dupla — composta por Ana e Davi — tivesse o criado, antes mesmo de se tornarem artistas musicais. O papel da Zine no projeto é muito importante por introduzir esses dois personagens e criar uma base sólida para sua história e evolução.
Visually speaking, the Zine was developed using two different languages in order to simulate Davi and Ana's graphic styles, along with the 3D photographies. The first one makes use of stronger, overlaying tones and typography, while the second language is a little more subtle and illustrated.
Binaural is the name given to an audio technique that explores the stereo aspect of digital audio as a way of simulating an environment through sound. This definition wraps around the concept and proposal for this material, which is to introduce and invent a whole universe through this duality of characters, languages, tastes, colors.
The use of modelled objects was a fun way I found of speaking about these two characters — or better, let them speak about themselves — and still get an appealing and interpretative result. Both red and blue are each associated to a character and were used as a way of referring to a particular person in each composition. These two aspects combined highlight a playful singularity in the creation of the Zine, which makes you question who's really behind it.
