Released in: Portugal
"Improbable Transgressions" is a double cd presenting a unique proposal of the internationally acclaimed classical and contemporary percussionist Pedro Carneiro. For his debut recording on Sirr, Pedro improvised nine solo five-octave marimba pieces, each one dedicated to a specific sound artist - and each one of these "tokens" were then sent to their particular dedicatee, with a short humurous note: "please hack me".
Disc "solo marimba improvisations" contains 9 solo for marimba recorded live, with no edits or overdubs. Each Improvisation is an open invitation to that particular artist to explore different modus operandi of their own idiom, using the sonic scope of the improvisation as the sole raw material for their digital audio "hack".
Disc "transgressions" contains 9 hacks/interpretations from artists across a diverse field of musical genres: Convolution Brothers, Chris Brown, Ivan Franco, Brandon Labelle, Stephan Mathieu João Pedro Oliveira, André Sier, Cristian Vogel, Ralf Wehowsky - this disc present the final reworking of their respective solo improvisations.
With an 8 page booklet full of liner notes written by Carneiro, artist Leonel Moura and the sound artists themselves, "Improbable Transgressions" is an exciting double album, featuring collaborative work involving an explosive mix of creative artists working in the field of digital audio processing and experimental music.
