descriptions, reviews, &c.

"I finally managed to listen to the missing item of a sort of trilogy/tetralogy that IKB Ensemble, a copious ensemble of improvisers grouped by Ernesto Rodrigues, performed between 2012 and 2014. This one, named after the so-called dragon-tree (many of you maybe saw them in the Canary Islands), includes two sessions held in the same place - St.George's Church in Lisbon, the only Anglican one in the Portuguese capital city - in two different moments.

Each CD includes the recording of those improv sessions - the first occurring on 13th October 2012, the second on 9th November 2014 -, performed by slightly different musicians. As for the releases I already introduced signed by IKB ("Monochrome Bleu Sans Titre" and "Rhinoceros"), it's better to highlight the fact that the number of involved musicians could be a somehow misleading piece of information, as their sound is other than a bulky instrumental condensate.

The line-up somehow affects the sound of each session, as you'll notice the one recorded in 2014 tend to be more electroacoustic (featuring in details and in no particular order: Maria Radich's voice, Armando Pereira on accordion, Paulo Curado on flute, Eduardo Chagas on trombone, Yaw Tembe on trumpet, Nuno Torres on alto saxophone, Guilherme Rodrigues on cello, Bruno Parrinha on alto clarinet, Rodrigo Pinheiro on organ, Ernesto Rodrigues on viola, Miguel Mira on double bass, Jose Oliveira on acoustic guitar, Nuno Morao on percussions, Gil Goncalves on tuba and flugabone, Carlos Santos manoeuvring a computer, Abdul Moimeme on electric guitar, Marian Yanchyk on violin and Joao Silva on a Feng Gong and Tibetan bells), while the blend of piercing pure radio frequencies and the dizzying dissonances of the session recorded in 2012 has a more "electronic" approach (there were more or less the same musicians involved in that session, but there were also Paulo Raposo on radio-driven electronics, Christian Wolfarth on cymbals, a wider set of percussions and percussionists, Ricardo Guerreiro siding Carlos Santos on computers and Ernesto Rodrigues performed on harp instead of viola).

There could be some analogy with the mentioned tree: both the session seems to proceed very slowly (just like the growth of a Dracaena Draco or only drago -!-), the instrumental elements appears to group in a seemingly nervous tangle (close to the intricate web of lower branches of that tree) and the general atmosphere of the sessions evokes something in between mysterious and sinister (many alchemists and magicians looked for that tree, whose red sticky resin was so red and dense that was apparently referred as "the blood of a dragon"!).'-Vito Camarretta, Chain DLK

"Rogério Silva has been developing, since 1988, a creative career as a plastic artist. When the need arises to interconnect his aesthetic vision, developed through works of painting and drawing, with other forms of artistic exploration, he chooses music as an extension of his creative activity, initiating studies of trumpet.

His interest in improvised music gradually emerges through his relationship with the instrument, which is the starting point for the creation of new effects, textures and sound exploration of environments.

Rogério Silva explores the trumpet in its power and formal sound in a way between the free improvisation and the composition in real time. Its electro-acoustic proposal combines amplified trumpet with effects of pedals, microphone and recordings, creating environments of sound intensity but also of intimacy, using silence as a formal work presence.

He collaborates regularly with the IKB Ensemble, VGO Variable Geometry Orchestra and is a member of the Granular Collective."

"Ricardo Guerreiro (Lisbon, 1975) is a composer who predominantly develops his activity in the field of computer music creation, mainly departing from his interest in the algorithmic description of sonic phenomenon and musical structuring. Over the last years he has been collaborating with different musicians in the composition of collaborative performance situations in diversified contexts. In the field of musicological research, he is interested in the fundamentally ontological character of Aesthetics, seen as a discipline that implies an evaluation of our approach to technique, i.e., how we relate to the means we have at our disposal, as well as the broad acting context, namely the cultural, social and physical spaces.

He holds a PhD in Music Informatics / Computer Music from the School of Arts of the Catholic University of Porto. Graduated in Composition by the Escola Superior de Música de Lisboa (2000) and in Electronic Music (2004) by the Conservatorio di Musica Benedetto Marcello di Venezia, Italy. In 2007, he obtained his degree in Musicology at Universidade Nova de Lisboa. He attended several composition courses and seminars in Lisbon, Porto, Aveiro, Paris (IRCAM - '99), Darmstadt ('98 and 2000) and Venice, with names like Annette Vande Gorne, Chaya Czernowin, Curtis Roads, Emmanuel Nunes, François Bayle, Hans Zender, Helmut Lachenmann, Isabel Mundry, Julio Estrada, Mark André, Morton Subotnick and Salvatore Sciarrino, among others, as well as Giorgio Agamben's Aesthetics (2001) and Iconology (2004) semester seminars held at the Universities of Verona and Venice, respectively.

As a scholarship holder of the Italian Government he developed, between 2001 and 2002, a research project on the computer music in "Prometeo" by Luigi Nono, supervised by Prof. Alvise Vidolin and having as invited institutions the Center for Computational Sonology (CSC) of the University of Padua and the Luigi Nono Archive in Venice. Between 2004 and 2014 he created and directed the Laboratory of Sound and Composition for the course of Cinema / Motion Picture of Ar.Co (Center for Art and Visual Communication). He was professor (2010-2013) in the courses of Interactive Multimedia Production and Sound Design at the IPA (Instituto Politécnico de Estudos Autónomos). Since 2007, he has been collaborating as a trainer in both ETIC (Escola Técnica de Comunicação e Arte) and EPI (Escola Profissional de Imagem). Between January and October 2016 he was music informatics assistant at ADDAC System, a company that produces modular synthesizers."

"Polivalent artist with conections to the Fluxus movement, José Oliveira is well known, besides music by his "mail art" creations, performance and poetry.

As an improvisor, his aproach to percussion is similar to Paul Lovens, Roger Turner, Lê Quan Ninh and Paul Lytton. He prefers a non conventional "set", where he uses instruments and objects as raw materials to create an improvised language rich in terms of timbre and textures. To this he adds sometimes inside piano manipulations and prepared guitar, in the same way as John Cage: the objects are placed on the strings or in between them in real-time performance, and not according to a previous plan.

He belonged to Sei Miguel collective between 1989 and 1996, played with Carlos Bechegas and Pedro Roxo and has a regular activity with Ernesto Rodrigues."

"Rodrigo Pinheiro was born in 1973 in Covilhã, a small town in the center of Portugal. He started learning the piano when he was five at the Conservatory of Covilhã and later at the Conservatory of Lisbon until he was eighteen. He soon got involved with the free Portuguese improvisation scene, having played with Américo Rodrigues, José Oliveira, Nuno Rebelo, Rodrigo Amado, Luís Desirat, Bruno Parrinha or Ernesto Rodrigues. Pinheiro's intuitive approach to improvisation and exploration of the piano timbres, using both classical and extensive techniques, makes his music energic, polyrhythmic and full of contrasts. Moreover, he has honed his technique at workshops of improvisa- tion and composition where he has played with virtuous names, such as Carlos Zíngaro, Peter Kowald, Gunther Muller or Patrick Brennan. He has also performed with several musicians, like Hiroshi Kobayashi, Cristin Wilboltz, Nathan Fuhr, Blaise Siwula, Per Anders Nilsson, John Zorn, Nobuyasu Furuya, Jason Stein, Nate Wooley, John Butcher, Lotte Anker, Joe McPhee, Keir Neuringer, among others. In 2010 Pinheiro formed his project RED Trio, with Hernâni Faustino (bass) and Gabriel Ferrandini (drums). The band has recorded four albums with Clean Feed and Nobusiness Records and performed live at jazz and improvised music festivals and concerts in Portugal, USA, Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Poland and Romenia. He is also a member of the Nobuyasu Furuya Quintet, which has two released albums by Chitei Records e Nobusiness Records.

Back to Lisbon, he has developed a work characterized by fragility and the exploitation of the ephemeral in a process that has crossed the various areas where he articulates. As a trumpeter he has developed a work based in the exploration of timbre possibilities of this instrument through acoustic resources such as self made mutes and "prepared trumpets" and the implementation of electronic pedals, drifting around influences such as Jon Hassel , Axel Dorner, Pierre Bastien and Toshinori Kondo. He has participated in several group exhibitions; in 2014 he was resident artist with the Mecanicantu Project in Musibéria - International Center for Music and Dance of the Iberian World (Serpa/Portugal) developing electroacoustic instruments.
