Composés à partir de field recordings, par la suite retravaillés et agencés via des procédés digitaux, les deux tracks forment un tout, dont chaque élément semble se […]

Francisco López & Miguel A. García’s “Ekkert Nafn” reviewed by Badd Press

Artists who produce instrumental music – or to put it more precisely, music that doesn’t feature vocals – are often asked how they decide on titles.

Luís Antero & Darius Čiuta’s “Sound” reviewed by Neural

The album is the result of a very personal exploratory process that seems to question the intimate and abstract nature of the sounds. As a result, the […]

@c’s “Espaço, Pausa, Repetição” reviewed by Silence and Sound

L’abstraction en musique, n’est pas une inconnue dans l’oeuvre de Miguel Carvalhais et Pedro Tudela aka @c, tant chaque album tire son sens de l’environnement dans lequel il se déplace, virtuellement ou réellement à travers les enceintes, créant des zones mobiles au croisement du conceptuel et de la poésie. Conçu pour une exposition à la Faculty of Fine Arts de […]
