The nexus between new music and avant improvisation conjoins and comes at us vibrantly on the LP release by EITR,Trees Have Cancer Too (Mazagran, Trem Azul 006). [...] They give us nearly 40 minutes of soundscaping that is at times noisy, always eventful and with a kind of avant narrative structure that poeticizes and gives us an unworded story line for our ears. [...] It is an original set of sounds well-paced. You have to hear it to get into its anatomy/structure, really. Words don’t do it justice. The whole thing is quite out there and quite good. Thank you again, oh Portuguese music-makers. Here’s another goodie. (Gapplegate Music Blog)

EITR – Eventually The Wind Died (mz006)

October 8th, 2013 § Comments Off § permalink

Eitr is duo of Pedro Sousa and Pedro Lopes, two portuguese young musicians, and some of the most exciting artists in the plastic, tonal and energetic exploration of sound in a long time. Using sax (sousa), turntables (lopes) and a communal use of electronics, their music is admittedly nervous, obsessively bent over the following moment. Unlike other past forms of improvisation more concerned with listening a certain purity of sound, this search is as focused as much as frantic in the pursuit of a new dialogue of sonic matter. Lopes’ is an impressive turntablist, and the amount of simultaneous events he manages to orchestrate is a rare feat in that instrument, while Sousa is an extremely caustic lower – he finds melody through pure sound, and from that essence gives rise a deeply personal lexicon, of a new improv, extremely vibrant and affirmative.

Pedro Sousa, saxophones and electronics. He is one of the most active young improvisors of the portuguese muscial scene he recently collaborated with several artists of avant-garde, free-jazz and experimental panorama (Rafael Toral, David Maranha, Thurston Moore, Gabriel Ferrandini, among other) and he won, this year, the “Ernesto Sousa” grant for portuguese artists headed by Phill Niblock.

Pedro Lopes, turntables and electronics,  is a Portuguese musician based in Berlin, with an extensive series of collaborations with names like Carlos Zingaro, Reinhold Friedl, Dj Sniff, Gabriel Ferrandini, among other; he is engaged with “radio art” that led producing pieces for the Transmediale Berlin, Serralves Foundation and Goethe Institut. Making its instrument, the turntable, vehicle for an exploration of analog tone, using amplifiers, homemade pressed vinyls, modified needles and percussive objects, Pedro Lopes is one of the most interesting and innovative young musician in exploratory music.
