Just debuted a new project: myself and a group of friends decided to form an art collective that we called “Facção Canalha”. For this colaborative project we dicided to make a record that would be released on the exibith premiere on the 18th June 2010.
From the beginning the plan was to do a record with me and Cage Cabbarett. Initially a simple disc with 3 songs as originally was planned was rapidly expanded to a full long play cd. I didn´t play guitar for the first time in this project which is quite strange from one perspective and quite refreshing on another.
I made all the record with a Monome (40h) emulator, and that is basically it. The tracks were improvised to tape and latter on spliced mixed & mastered by me a few days before the exibit premiere.
I must say that i am very happy with the results in both perspectives(the exibit and the record). Regarding the cd; i think that we achieved a very abstract and ethereal record, but at the same time a very rhythmically driven one; with lot´s of stylistic recognizable references but that somehow defies categorization.
Hope that you enjoy it as much as i did making it! You can listen to it at the Shop .
And by the way: i want to thank Nico Verino, André, Rubina, João Faustino, Vanessa Éffe, João Henriques and João Paulo Barrinha for this fantastic collaborative experience and outstanding creativity and professionalism ; the first of many more to come i am shure.
