descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Undoubtedly, one of the most beautiful projects realized by the galaxy of Portuguese improvisers federated around the violist Ernesto Rodrigues and his friends. All the instruments used by the eighteen musicians present are "stringed" whether they are rubbed (violins, violas da gamba, cellos, double basses), plucked (guitars, zither, harps) or hit / plucked by a keyboard mechanism (Piano, harpsichord).

Gravity is a long improvisation that occupies the entire duration of the compact, excellently recorded and prepared for the disc by Ernesto himself. When one imagines the difficulties encountered in finding a decent place, to gather so many musicians, to focus them on a very precise idea like this string orchestra, one can already welcome the extraordinary work of these Portuguese musicians brought together by Ernesto Rodrigues, Which has just produced in 2016 no fewer than eighteen albums with his collaborations. A disc with 18 musicians and 18 Creative Sources albums, four of which present the music of more imposing collective ensembles such as the present String Theory, Theatron, IKB and Variable Geometry Orchestra, the latter two ensembles not having their first try.

The workforce of the Variable Geometry Orchestra in Quasar their new album culminates in 46 musicians. Collectively and musically, it is therefore a work and a long-term work and we can already consider the personality of Ernesto Rodrigues, tireless organizer of Lisbon as unavoidable as those of Eddie Prevost, Rhodri Davies, Michel Doneda or Franz Hautzinger, for example, among the artists who have contributed to the practice of free improvisation over the last twenty years towards minimalist forms, roughly qualifying lower-case, reductionist, new Silence, etc ...

And what is more exemplary than this Gravity which, beginning with a ghostly ostinato, visits the aggregates of sounds, rubbings, pinches, curious vibrations, dynamic squeaks in a kalideoscopic vision and arachneenne of the " Instrumental action. Violoncello or guitar prepared, miasmus of violin, scratching, phantom sounds, mysterious rustles. Although it seems that a forced path is traced, certain instruments intervene in concert as if the moment was chosen: free improvisation and their innate qualities Of mutual listening, of simultaneous action and reaction, and of finesse in empathy, allow String Theory's companions to trace a path, to build a universe that is both homogeneous and heterogeneous according to the point of view square.

Indeed, a community of feeling, an ambient temperature shared by each one is drawn and connects all the specific sounds, timbrales, dynamics, frank affirmations and playful connivances that flush out thirty-nine minutes and thirty five seconds. The actions of the musicians can be very diversified or concentrated in a single impetus according to the feeling of each one. Gravity is a unique recording in the annals of improvised music and that is why I will later discuss the sister projects IKB, Variable Geometry Orchestra and Theatron in the following chronicles. It is not every day that such extensive orchestral formations are documented in the field of contemporary improvisation."-Jean-Michel van Schouwburg, Orynx (translated by Google)

"My name is Bernardo Alvares, I was born in 1989 and I live in Lisboa. I originally came to Lisboa to study. First I took an BSc in African Studies in FLUL (University of Lisbon) while studying jazz doublebass in Hot Clube de Lisboa. Soon I grew tired of conventional jazz and became part of the free improvisation movement. Later I continued my studies with an MSc in Urban Studies in ISCTE-IUL (Lisbon University Institute) and FCSH-UNL (New University of Lisbon) and wrote a master thesis about the relations between precariousness and counterculture in the contemporary city. As a musician I've been developing mostly doublebass and electric bass in languages such as free improvisation, free jazz, rock, noise, drone and hip-hop. I have allready worked with musicians such as Alan Courtis, Carla Bozulich, Helena Espvall, Paulo Raposo, Ernesto Rodrigues, Maresuke Okamoto, McCloud Zicmuse, Roland Ramanan, Mário Babrem, LBC Soldjah, Hezbó MC or Ondness. My most consistent musical projects includes Zarabatana, Alforjs and Luís Severo but I was also been a part of the doublebasses drone duo ABBA, the free-punk band dUASsEMIcOLCHEIASiNVERTIDAS, the Cornelius Cardew inspired anarchist ensemble Tratado de Cardew, the free-improv trio Chaparreiro/Álvares/Morão, the spokenword band Tapete, the William Burroughs inspired noisy duo S for Seward and several other ad-hoc formations. I've also worked with other artists such as Flora Detraz and Elizabete Francisca (dance/performance), Stéphane Blumi (video), Nacho Durán (multimedia), Paula Alonso (actress), Manuel Badás (dancer), Yaw Tembe (plastic arts), or Cristina Delius (tapdancing). I've also made sound instalations for the exhibitions "Partida, Largada, Fugida" from Mariana Marques and "Zones d'habilité" from Aude Barrio and Barbara Meuli. I've gave workshops of improvised music in Portugal, in CACAU (São Tomé, São Tomé e Príncipe) and Paraiso LC (Oviedo, Spain). I've been working with Alan Courtis on a music project with Out.Ra and Associação Nós, an association in Barreiro, Portugal, for the inclusion of people with mental diversity. This group debuted live in March 2016 and continued in 2017, although we're looking for a way to fund it. I curated Leitmotiv, which was a music and publications monthly cycle where musicians interpret graphic scores made purposely for this cycle hosted by Zaratan Gallery. Music related, I'm also a DJ, a producer and occasional sound technician. I've also made regular music critics to jazz.pt magazine between 2013 and 2015 and was part of the associations Pantalassa and Associação Terapêutica do Ruído."

Joao Madeira: "I was born in Lisboa and I've dedicated most of my energy to the doublebass since I was 12. When I went to study at the Conservatório de Lisboa my role model was doublebassist João Panta Nunes, and lately my studies were oriented by Jorge Lee, at Cascais. I have a degree in Musicology, investigation work on Fado's candidature to World Immaterial Heritage by UNESCO, and coordination of the Music Department at INATEL/FNAT. Since 1999 I have a strong activity (studio and performance) in several styles and genres, but improvised music and original composition (whatever the style...) are the places where my musical language riches its higher satisfaction and plenitude. In the recordings you are about to hear it's me who plays all the instruments. My passion is at the simple act of artistic creation. For me, music is all about musicians and genuine expression! It doesn't matter the genre neither the instrument per si. In theater I have collaborations (musician, composer, actor) with Companhia do Chapitô and Artistas Unidos, amongst others. I also love books (...) I've studied aesthetics and Portuguese literature since I remember, and love to read and write poetry."

"John Klima employs a variety of technologies to produce artwork with hand-built electronics, and computer hardware and software. Consistently connecting the virtual to the real, Klima builds large scale electro-mechanical installations driven by 3D game software he programs from scratch. The virtual computer imagery mirrors and extends the potential and agency of the physical components to produce cohesive worlds that are both humorous and sinister. In 2003 he focused on his long-time fascination with model railroading to create his first HO scale railroad piece, titled simply Train. Exhibited in December 2003 at Postmasters Gallery in New York, Train was shown in April 2005 at the DeCordova Museum in Boston, and in September became part of the permanent collection of the Museo Extremeño e Iberoamericano de Arte Contemporáneo in Badajoz, Spain. Klima has exhibited extensively in museums and galleries in the United States, Europe, and Asia. His exhibitions include BitStreams at the Whitney Museum of American Art as well as the 2002 Whitney Biennial. He has also exhibited at Eyebeam, The New Museum of Contemporary Art, PS.1 and The Brooklyn Museum of Art. His international exhibitions include The Museum for Communication in Bern, Switzerland, the NTT InterCommunication Center in Tokyo, Japan, The Daejeon Municipal Museum in Korea, and numerous international festivals. Selections from his bibliography include the New York Times, The New Yorker, Art Forum, Flash Art, and Business Week. Klima was recently a research scientist at the Courant Institute, New York University, and is currently adjunct Professor of Digital Media at the Rhode Island School of Design. Klima also teaches an extensive course in game design theory and production at the Polytechnic University of Brooklyn. John Klima is represented by Postmasters in New York, Bank Gallery in Los Angeles, and Gallery of International Media Art, Berlin, Germany."

"Adriana Sá is transdisciplinary artist, performer musician/ composer. Her graphical scores choreograph texture, density, dominance and sequence variations rather than clock-time or note arrangements. Designing and building the instrumentation is part of her creative process. For almost two decades, Sá used sensor technologies to explore music connected to light, space, movement, architecture, weather and social context; her architecturally-scaled instruments combined analogue and digital components. Currently, Adriana develops research about audio-visual instrument design and composition. She has been clarifying artistic insights with the aid of cognition/ attention research, and developing 3D audio-visual software that operates based on pitch detection from a custom zither input.

Adriana Sá has been developing and presenting her work around Europe, USA and Japan since 1997. She has consistently developed a number of project-series dedicated to specific artistic investigations: 'Sensations Laboratories', 'Interchange Formats', 'This Is Just To Do', 'Parallax', 'Metaparallax', 'Portablellax', 'Moment In Movement', 'Thresholds', 'Windowmatter' and 'Emotional Object'. In these and other contexts, she has collaborated with hundreds of artists. Currently she is developing two parallel projects: 'Included Middle', with John Klima, and 'Timespine', with John Klima and To Trips.

Throughout the years, Adriana work has been presented worldwide, in venues like Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, Culturgest, Serralves, Teatro Maria Matos or Museu do Chiado in Portugal; Experimental Intermedia Foundation, PS1/ MoMa or Eyebeam in the US; Caixa Forum or Arteleku in Spain; ICA - Institute of Contemporary Arts, The Media Centre Huddersfield or Sonic Arts Research Centre in the UK; and ACAC - Aomori Contemporary Art Center in Japan. She also presented site-specific work in a codfish-drying factory or a chapel, in Portugal, or an active a textile mill in the UK. She performed and exhibited in festivals such as LEM (Spain), Ultrasound (UK), Atlantic Waves (UK), Luzboa Biannual (Portugal), xxxxx (UK), Sonorities (Irland), NIME - New Interfaces for Musical Expression (US) or Version Beta (Switzerland).

Adriana´s artistic work has been made possible through grants, funding supports and commissions, by institutions such as Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation (PT), Cultural Ministry (PT), Serralves (PT), Aomori Contemporary Art Centre (JP), Kirkless Media Center Huddersfield (UK), T-U-B-E (GR), European CoDaCo Fund (EU), FLAD- Portuguese-American Foundation (US/PT), Kampnagel (GR) and Instituto Camões (PT).

Adriana's artistic practice fluidly expanded her early education in music (Mendelsohn Hochshule fuer Musik. Leipzig, GDR), visual arts (Atelier Livre, António Arroio School, Fine Arts University, Lisbon, PT) and hypermedia design (Teacher Formation Course in Graphic Design for Hypermedia Systems, CNS, Lisbon). Her practice has been furthered with workshops (e.g. at AA- Architechtural Association (UK) or FEUP - Engineering Faculty/ Porto University (PT), communications, texts and audio-CDs. She had a positon as assistent professor at ESAD / Polytechnic Institute Leiria (PT), from 2009 to 2011. In 2011- 16 she was a researcher at Goldsmiths University of London, EAVI research group, Department of Arts and Computing (UK), with a grant by FCT-Foundation for Science and Technology. She is currently a professor at Coimbra University, in the departments of Computing and Arquitecture. Her scientific articles have been published with ICLI 2012, Leonardo Almanac, Leonardo Transactions, XCoAX 2014 and 2017, NIME 2014, and Journal Of Science And Technology Of The Arts."
