Rodrigues / Laurain / Rodrigues / Guerreiro: Alba (Creative Sources)
Label: Creative Sources    
Released in: Portugal    


"[...] Begin with Alba, which contains four improvisations by Ernesto Rodrigues on viola, Louis Laurain on trumpet, Guilherme Rodrigues on cello and Ricardo Guerreiro on computer. All four pieces exist within a sonic space of subtle movement. The basic sound shape running throughout most of the recording is a slowly mutating, ambiguously dissonant chord wrapped in an outer shell of electronic white noise. Although the identity of individual instruments is largely submerged, here and there their signature traces emerge, such as slow, pressure-heavy bowstrokes; a rush of breath; the scrape of hair or the tap of wood against strings. Somehow, it's hard not to hear Alba through the impressions suggested by its title. "Alba" is Portuguese for "white", and the four improvisations individually and collectively bring to mind Kandinsky's or Ryman's white-on-white paintings. As with the paintings these four tracks seem at first to be monochromatic, but on closer attention they reveal a spectrum of shadings in their details. With this recording, one can almost visualize the plasticity of sounds as they respond to each other across the surfaces of audio space. A rewarding listen individually and taken together."-Daniel Barbiero, Avant Music News
