descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Pinkdraft is a quartet (Ricardo Jacinto cello / Nuno Torres alto sax / Nuno Morão objects / percussion / Travassos amplified objects, tapes, circuit bending) where Morão´s percussion and objects, and Travassos amplified objects, tapes, and circuit bending inventions, articulate their noisy and organic rhythm constructions with the language developed by Cacto (Nuno Torres and Ricardo Jacinto). A polyphonic approach to noise has made the quartet more aware of the representational landscape properties of the music they´ve been recording. Using graphic scores and open forms for improvisations along with presentations in non-conventional venues, have implied spatialization of musicians to better address the acoustic characters of the different spaces."-Ricardo Jacinto website
