descriptions, reviews, &c.

"Sei Miguel looked dead serious when he told me that in the future he doesn't plan to write any new music. Instead, he wants to bring to daylight dozens of scores that he has stored for over 30 years on a drawer. Some of this music had been performed a few times live. Some have been performed just once. And most have never seen a stage at all. From this large collection, only a handful have been recorded professionally and these old recordings were not released.

Salvation Modes is the first chapter of this long story. Featuring just one recent piece, the record you hold in your hands is Sei's first push at presenting his well-kept secrets and it is an amazing sample, a well-balanced choice of contrasting material with great sound work."Prelúdio," as fits its title, opens for the explosive "Cruz de Sala", in a kind of a mantra way. Sei's Unit Core features Pedro Gomes' exquisite guitar, as he burns while respecting the pace and space of these tunes. Fala and César have very precise and beautiful lines over the six (ascendant) parts of Cruz de Sala. It starts and closes with much fire.

Listening to "Fermata" is like coming back home to Sei's more introspective world. It is, in fact, a great introduction to what his work is about, and a sort of deep breath to prepare our ears for what comes later. A cleaning tune so to speak. Don't mistake this for some kind of tepid music. That's not at all the case. Common to all his work is the superb use of timbres, picking up the right ingredients to cook the vision he has in mind. This is a great example of the Sei Miguel sound of music. Cool.

"Cantata Mussurana" is based on a creole purification ritual. You can almost see that, as you listen to the varying tensions and intensities in the music. Through the three movements of the Cantata you sense the snake -Mussurana- that is brought to the place where the ceremony will occur. The snake, which is not poisonous, cleans up an entire world of speculation, eating the poisonous snakes and, in the end, bringing safety and peace to the people. This exotic mood is set through the careful orchestration of ten instrumental voices around a human voice.

Such a masterpiece released from this obsessive workaholic, who is playing better than ever, makes us eagerly anticipate the next surprise from his musical treasure chest, revealing just a bit more of his huge course."-Clean Feed


Artist Biographies:

"Plays his trumpet with complete awareness of the whole Jazz history while dealing, as a music director, with the full spectrum of sound sources in a broad range of innovative (and often strange) solutions, including frequent use of electronics. He has created his own music system, allowing him to take his open pieces to a high degree of perfection.

Director, arranger and trumpeter, Sei Miguel considers himself a simple jazzman, which, he says, isn't always easy. Born in 1961, Paris, lived in Brazil and France until settling down in Portugal during the 80's. Since 1986 he has been directing formations of variable geometry. Having performed in Portugal, Germany, Italy and Brazil, among his many regular collaborators are not only guitarists Rafael Toral and Manuel Mota, but also extraordinaire trombone player and painter Fala Mariam and virtuoso percussionist César Burago. Miguel has also written music for theater and ballet."

"Born in Lisbon. Some academic training did not foster in her an interest for musical creation. In 1980, during a trip to the north of India, she intuited the sacred fire of true music, that she will find again in the more initiatic jazz and the gratifying discovery of several trombonists. Sei Miguel´s "sideman" since 1983, she partakes in all his works."

"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."
