descriptions, reviews, &c.
The eerie collaborative world of Pablo Rega and Alfredo Costa Monteiro derives respectively from home made electronic devices and turntable pickups. These errant devices are used in unlikely ways to generate a wide palette of sounds, tones and rhythmic environements; both avoid the chaotic, instead structuring and controlling their sounds in sculpted ways.
The three unnamed tracks build like pressurized sound chambers, from subtle progression to cantankerous and disturbing walls of sound. The dynamics of the pieces are sophisticated and complex, allowing the listener to breathe between the blasts, while consistently maintaining interest with auditory objects of indiscernible origin. It's as though you were journeying down a dark copper path inside a malfunctioning circuit board, where each component offered it's own voice in whine and static while a massive fan sometimes filtered out all senses. An unusual, engaging and mysterious set of works.
