descriptions, reviews, &c.

"[...] based on collective improvisations, free structure, interesting musical experiments by each musician and striking and evocative musical language. All these elements help musicians to create interesting, vivacious, vivid and expressive sound. Each musician is improvising individually - the improvisations have its own character, are based on indepdndent musical decisions and specific playing manners. Saxophone improvisations by Paulo Alexandre Jorge have effective, expressive and vibrant sound. It's full of dynamic and sudden stylistic changes and turns - improviser uses especially huge variety of traditional playing techniques and experimental ways of playing. The extraction of unusual and strange timbres is the main priority of the saxophonist. He's making an effort to search and extract original and weird sounds and new ways of playing. His improvisations are expressive, vivid, vivacious and striking, mostly are based on abstract musical pattern and free form. Spontaneous and vibrant solos, sharp harmony, colorful timbres and sounds, expressive and vivacious melodic elements, rigorous and sharp blow outs and many other elements make an effort to whole sound of the album. Trombone improvisations by Eduardo Chagas are deep, nright and solid. Repetitive and monotonic bass line is highly contrasting with live, active, rapid and dynamic saxophone. Deep, soft and monotonic trombone tones are blended together with bright, expressive and aggressive solos, original and interesting ways of playing and unusual sounds. Manuel Guimarães piano improvisations are especially energetic, striking and touching. It's full of passionate and virtuosic passages, colorful and rapid arpeggios, sharp and dissonance harmony, separate chords, which are based on unusual tones combinations, extended variety of playing techniques, expressions and other elements of musical language. Pianist playing is especially evocative and interesting - it's also full of vibrant, sudden and colorful waves, turns, surprises and changes. Viola (Ernesto Rodrigues) and cello (Miguel Mira) improvisations bring the intonations academic avant-garde and experimental music. Though, the basics of their improvisations are the main elements of avant-garde jazz and free improvisation, both musicians are using many modern and experimental playing techniques of academic avant-garde and experimental music. That makes an effort to the marvelous and organic synthesis between avant-garde jazz, free improvisation and experimental music. [...]"-Avant Scena

"He has been playing the violin for 30 years and in that time has played all genres of music ranging from contemporary music to free jazz and improvised music, live and in the studio.

His main interest shifted towards contemporary improvised and composed music.

The relationship with his instruments is focused in sonic and textural elements.

Electronic music was an early influence on his approach to violin playing, which challenges traditional romantic concepts of the violin/viola through use of preparations and micro tuning.

Active in different settings on the Portuguese scene for free improvised music, both as a collaborator and in leading his own groups.

Music for Dance, Cinema, Video and Performance.

Has created the record label Creative Sources Recordings in 1999, which mainly concentrates on releasing experimental and electro-acoustic music."
