"Exosphere is the follow up to Mekhaanu-La Foret des Mecanismes Sauvages(Insubordinations Netlabel, 2013) and like that album, Exosphere features Moimeme on his two home-made electric guitars, enhancers and assorted sound devices. The sole track is the forty-one-minute title track. Much of what Moimeme does here is a product of reverberation and what he does with that reverberation is remarkable. Listen at the sixteen-minute mark in and you'll hear something akin to a muted blast of trumpets. Further in there is the jangle of chimes and later still the approximation of piano keys. All these peripheral effects lie within a broader universe that is indeterminate in nature. Rarely does Moimeme incorporate a guitar-like dynamic-he plays his two custom guitars simultaneously using an electronic bow, amplified through a pre-amp and two speakers. He utilizes a gyroscope, music boxes and other objects to create an otherworldly soundscape. Exosphere was recorded live at The Church of SantaEngracia-now the Panteao Nacional-a 17th-century monument in Lisbon. The music can't be described in literal terms, nor is it meant to be. Moimeme has developed a method of making reverberation into an instrument that can stand alone. As a narrative Exosphere is both allegorical and conversant, always leading to another destination but never being obvious about where Moimeme intends to set down. In fact, the artist travels through backdrops that are only familiar enough to invite a double-take, a bit of misperception about the source of a sound or the direction it is coming from. There is some intangible quality to Moimeme's composition that makes one want to listen repeatedly. Exosphere is an extraordinarily unique and highly enjoyable album."-Karl Ackermann, All About Jazz


Artist Biographies:

"Abdul Moimême was born in Lisbon, in 1959, moving at an early age to New Mexico and later to Dublin, Ireland. He began studying the guitar at the age of 11, studying under various private teachers, in Madrid, Spain.

In 1979 he moved to Boston to study architecture, finally completing his degree at the University of Lisbon.

In the 90's he began studying the tenor saxophone with Patrick Brennan. In this period he became actively involved with Lisbon's improvised and alternative rock scenes, performing frequently with the Variable Geometry Orchestra since it's creation in 2003, as well as with various other local projects.

His main musical partners are from Lisbon and Porto, but he has also performed in public concerts with such artists as Gale Brand, George Haslam, Jon Raskin, Ken Filiano, Patrick Brennan, Steve Adams, and Wade Matthews.

In 1999 he started writing about jazz in various Portuguese publications and is currently a permanent collaborator of Jazz.pt magazine, and Publico newspaper, as a critic.

In 2006 he created Freemusic (http://freemusic.podomatic.com), a space exclusively dedicated to the promotion of Portuguese improvised music."
