[050] MuepEtmo – Pure Butter

This MuepEtmo album can be listened as a sequel of “I’m a broken man”, also released by Antena.art.br. It follows the way of piano improvisation turning into noise/ambient, however, if in “I’m a broken man” the mood of chanson and cabaret manifests, in “Pure Butter” Satie speaks louder, with the music moving from noise/ambient and entering little by little, more and more, inside the piano.

[047] Marco Scarassatti – Novelo Elétrico 6

Novelo Elétrico (“Electric Yarnball”) is thought as a poetic construction of sound spaces, having as its matrix the improvising with invented musical instruments, objects between music and visual arts. It starts from the concept of yarnball, matted threads that precedes textile or it is posterior to it, when the leftovers are organized. In principle, it is not the object of the thread, its destiny from the point of view of work. But it is constituted as a form, almost object, which depends on the way in which it is skeined. It ascends to status of object-toy by use of children and felines.

“My search is in the poetic-political construction of sound spaces, be it miniaturized, ambient, territorial, performative or simulated. Somehow I was always interested in what, inside Music, was not music; which was on the other side of the border and forced me to cross it. The relationship with the physical space, with the plastic form, with the concept; I am interested in the undesired sounds in the production of the desired sounds, the instant of time that anticipates the music, signing the agreement of separation between ordinary and extraordinary. Sound as generator of form and form as generator of sound.”
