@C – Music For Empty Spaces
CD – Baskaru
Non-places, uninhabitable spaces on the edge of several fascinating layers and fractures and delicate and extremely sensitive aural presences.These are the aesthetics of a parallel universe in which abstract experiments live, along with field recordings, ghostly melodies, environmental drones and synthetic constructs. Pedro Tudela and Miguel Carvalhais, aka @c, cleverly modulate juxtaposed fragments, embarking on a fascinating mystical journey, full of tonal counterpoints, microsounds and frequencies. The dynamics are strengthened through contrast with the poetic beauty of an unconventional mix. The Portuguese duo know how to guide us through a maze of charming and never dull communications. This is “a collage, a kind of diary, an archive of memories”, with intangible forms and immediately sensitizing effects; absolutely fascinating and concrete.
