Touching Extremes

Working at the blurred margins of what’s immediately decipherable (for instance, but not exclusively, liquid percolations and gushes in every possible manifestation and shape) and what is not (the fruits of a computerized process that attributes amorphous resonances and rearranged configurations to the original sounds) Pedro Tudela and Miguel Carvalhais show once more that their place among the generators of logically turbulent soundscapes featuring a large range of gradations and dynamics should be in the first rows. The abundant hour of 0°-100° contains numerous references to what my ears partially distinguish as industrial unfoldings: pressure and mechanical repetition are two essential traits of the piece, which is divided in eight sections succeeding without interruptions. If you pictured a cynical demonstration of heartless power, think again, though; the level of rationalism is indeed high, yet the “human” element is still at work, and we can feel it rather clearly – not to mention the wonderful blackbird tweets ending the whole. Quite impressively, everything appears inevitably related and coherently inserted within the composition’s structure, attributing lucidity and consistency to a meticulously assembled patchwork informed by a thoroughly no-nonsense attitude. Caveat: interrupting the sonic flow is anathema. This record makes sense only if listened in its entirety, thus set aside some quality time to give it the deserved concentration. Massimo Ricci

Neural

From Monochrome Vision, a label in Moscow dedicated to contemporary electronic sound experimentations, comes an interesting project signed by @C, the duo of Pedro Tudela and Miguel Carvalhais, an ensemble well known to the "aficionados" of particularly abstract and conceptual scenes. The meeting between these two artists engages in sophisticated digital manipulation and audio-video improvisation. The artists have been careful to construct scores that adapt well to performance events (from this, unsurprisingly, stems the collaboration‚ quite a common practice in festivals - with another filmmaker, Lia (from Austria), a sort of additional member of the "group", who in this case is responsible for the artwork). "0¬∞ - 100¬∞" is divided into eight parts, assembled primarily from recordings made in different cities and countries around the world between 2005 and 2009, following the inspiration of a liquid and whirling movement, dense with percolations and phase transitions, in a modular and open composition, full of uncommon sound emergencies and interesting structural developments.
