sample the album:
"In this series of releases, "Way of Walking" is the antithesis, the claim of reductionist status as it was presented at the beginning. Ernesto and Guilherme Rodrigues counter with Karine Decorne and Simon Proffitt for a return to the initial coordinates of this stream of improvisation. It is more the passages not intervened than those in which we hear something, and what enters our ears are crepitations, clicks, rubbing. Being the least interesting edition of this batch is quite significant."-Rui Eduardo Paes, Jazz.pt
• Show Bio for Ernesto Rodrigues
"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."-Creative Sources (http://creativesourcesrec.com/creative_artists.html)

• Show Bio for Simon Proffitt
"Simon spent the first 18 years of his life in a Derbyshire village with a Nottinghamshire postal town and South Yorkshire postcode.He now lives in north Wales, where he spends his time looking extremely tired.
According to TripAdvisor, he is currently rated #2 of 5 Simon Proffitts in the UK.The 1963 re-print of Frommer's Guide To Copenhagen noted that Simon was 'flawed, but ultimately well-meaning'.
An editorial in the February 1982 edition of Rail Enthusiast stated that he was 'likeable and gently self-effacing, but doubts persist about his ability to exert a strong presence in the 18 yard box'.Propaganda distributed by the US military throughout rural Vietnam between 1966-1969, meanwhile, remarked that '[his] fake Dutch accent is wildly inconsistent and fundamentally inaccurate'.Perhaps the most insightful summary, however, can be found on artybollocks.com:
My work explores the relationship between emerging sexualities and copycat violence.With influences as diverse as Nietzsche and Buckminster Fuller, new synergies are created from both opaque and transparent meanings.
Since childhood I have been fascinated by the essential unreality of the human condition. What starts out as yearning soon becomes corroded into a dialectic of temptation, leaving only a sense of what could have been and the unlikelihood of a new beginning.As shimmering forms become reconfigured through diligent and repetitive practice, the viewer is left with an insight into the edges of our world."-Simon Proffitt Website (http://www.simonproffittalloneworddotcom.co.uk/about/)
