What a wonderful and moving album! David Maranha is not
a newcomer. Portuguese violinist and composer of extreme experimental
music, he releases with " Circunscrita " his third solo album for the excellent
Swiss label Namskeio, and he also has a long experience with the project
Osso Exotico, specialised in resonant manipulations on string instruments.
The surprise is big when we realise which are the instruments used to lead
to these troubling and superb atmospheres, magically decomposed with
the help of a violin, a guitar, a harmonium, an organ and a bass. A hallucinating
succession of drones, dark and bewitching, evolving quietly in linear structures,
powerful and dangerous. The tracks stretch, in long and interminable notes,
that follow themselves slowly, inexorably. The time seems suspended. These
sounds, commonly regrouped under the appellation " sound art ", take all
their strength on true instruments. An alchemy sometimes heavy and painful
for earsthat are not accustomed to these treatments, but so delicate if
one takes enough time to get closer to these structures. A rich and
intense experience that we can't forget.
Indispensable and essential!
